San Ysidro POE / AP Question

We plan using my wife’s advance parole documents for the first time at the San Ysidro point of entry in California. We will be walking across the border. I know that the first time, you typically have to go to the smaller office just outside of the main facility at the end of that typically humungous line to cross the border.

However, we will likely be crossing the border later at night after that smaller office has closed. I’m fairly certain that they can still process special circumstance crossings such as using AP, but I wanted to make sure and possibly hear from others.

Probably a stretch, but if anyone has crossed using the San Ysidro POE later at night, how did that work? Did you just go through the regular line? Once at the counter of CPB officers, did they process it there or did they send you to the automobile crossing secondary?

Thanks for any insight.

fwaguy ... excellent advice. Sometimes we get so caught up in finding information in all corners of the web that we forget to try the most simple approach - calling them directly.

For what it's worth to anyone else, I just spoke with people from the San Ysidro POE. As of writing, the smaller office ("special cases"?) is evidently now open 24h / 7 days. I was told you would need to go there first with both AP documents as well as the EAD card. I specifically asked if we needed anything else but the agent said no. We will likely be bringing other documents just in case - at a minimum, marriage certificate and NOA for AOS.
