arrowMy EAD/AP combo card travel experience at Chicago airport

Hi guys,


Just wanted to share my AP travel experience. 


Traveled from Ukraine to the USA via Chicago O'Hare airport on the 21 of November. 


Had a stop in Germany, Frankfurt airport, went trough the security and passport check up without any problems, names on my passport and EAD AP card do not match (passport on maiden name, EAD AP on married), but no one asked for marriage license. 


Landed in Chicago, went to the secondary inspection, gave them my EAD AP card, passport and a customs declaration. In the room with me there were around 12 people, I waited around 15 minutes and the officer gave me back my EAD AP, passport and declaration. In the passport they paroled me for around one year. Noone asked me about my marriage license or any other docs. Everyone extremely nice, helpful, respectful.


My advice though, always have all the docs with you, do not stress about AP traveling, no problems at all at any stage, always keep copy of marriage docs with you no matter what. 


Good luck with international travelling!

the cbp told sveta and I this past summer that next summer sveta can apply for citizenship since we would be married 3 years. cbp also stated sveta can have duo-citizenship with ukraine and when we question him about ukraine as rule not allow his reply was " the relationship with both countries ukraine will allow duo-citizenship with the usa " , but when I read the department of state website about it it is allowed. But on the n-400 app I read ( I hereby declare, on oath, that I absolutely and entirely renounce and abjure all allegiance and fidelity to any foreign prince, potentate,

state, or sovereignty, of whom or which I have heretofore been a subject or citizen;  )
sveta not want give up ukraine so any advice?

My K1 fiancée visa is being transferred from NVS to The US Embassy in Kiev for my fiancée and her 18 yr old daughter, I'm confused about the fees we need to pay.

The DS160 fee of $265 is it for both my fiancee and her daughter or separate fees $265 x 2 ?

The medical exam fee of $215 is separate for each ?

Are there any other embassy fees that need to be paid ?

I had posted before here.  We will have everything ready to mail this Saturday and we are willing to pay extra fees to get it there on Monday to the Chicago Lock box.


I'm thinking the best way is express mail overnite via USPS to their PO box. Please suggest or confirm this is the best way.


Also how long to get the NOA1?  I see on other's timeline this takes a few days.  If we overnight it does that help?


I plan on sending the e-notification form G-1145.  Does that count as an NOA1?

We have filed out an I-130 for my wife's mother. She lives between Donetsk and Lugansk in the eastern Ukraine. My question is, I don't know how possible it is to get her to Kiev for an interview. To be honest it might be easier to get her to Russia as they are about 30 minutes drive from the Russian border, if not closer than that. What should we expect as this process unfolds, especially if all out war breaks out again? Is there any way to expedite anything? Thanks for the comments. 


For what its worth, my wife's sister is 16 and in Russia, she has no travel documents aside from her Ukrainian passport, not her international passport. I know my wifes mother can apply for her daughter once she gets her green card, but how if she needs a new international passport and all the offices anywhere near Lugansk are closed.
