Travel while waiting for Adjustment of Status/ Advanced Parole

7 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

I have a question regarding travel abroad while waiting for an adjustment of status/ advanced parole: Having entered the US on a K1 visa, married, and applied for an adjustment of status on one passport, would it be possible to leave the US and re-enter using another passport of another European country (that qualifies for the visa waiver program?). Passports on the visa waiver program do not have any paper in them that gets relinquished when exiting the US, so I could retain the 1-94 paper (from the k1 visa) in my first passport while travelling on my second (of different European nationality). The purpose of the trip is to visit a sick grandmother, so I am very keen to be able to leave while the 90-day processing period of the adjustment of status.

Oh NO! This is a horrible plan and it is impossible.

They know when you exit the country (they use plane manifests, not pieces of paper), and they are interested in YOU as a person, not your passport. If you as a person exit the US, your AOS will be considered abandoned and you will start over with a spousal visa.

If your grandmother is ill, you can request an expedited AP to visit her.


AOS for my husband
8/17/10: INTERVIEW DAY (day 123) APPROVED!!

ROC:
5/23/12: Sent out package

Make an infopass appointment, bring a copy of a letter from grandma's doctor and ask for emergency advance parole. Don't try your passport trick, they have passenger manifests and take fingerprints.


Spouse-based AOS from out-of-status H-1B, May - Aug 2012

Removal of conditions, Aug - Nov 2014
