Advance Parole after i485

7 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

Hi,

I sent i485 and i130 back in February 2015. My EAD was approved after 63 days. but It looks like my adjustment of status will take a few more months, so I decided to apply for advance parole and sent the form yesterday. I understand that AP doesn't require biometrics, so I was wondering how long AP approval will take? ~60 days or is faster in this case?

Thank you.

I read somewhere else that it usually takes a couple of weeks if your EAD has already been approved, maybe I was lucky....who knows. When I sent the i131 form I only attached a copy of the i485 NOA, nothing else.

Good luck!
