Obtaining Peruvian tourist visa while on AP

Hi Guys!

I have a pretty specific question, but I thought I would throw it out there to see if anyone has similar experiences.

My husband is waiting for his AOS to go through, but has received his AP/EAD card. We would like to go to Peru together (this is *not* his home country) for roughly a month and a half as tourists this Nov-Dec. Costa Rican citizens (including my husband) need to apply for a tourist visa to visit Peru, and on the US Peruvian consulate website it mentions that you need to show you are legally living in the US to receive one from the US-based consulate. I obviously know he's here legally, but I also know that his I-94 is expired (on which grounds he was wrongfully denied an SSN a while back). I don't know if foreign consulates within the US are up-to-snuff on the K-1 visa, and if he will be denied a tourist visa due to a misunderstanding. This could be potentially expensive because we need to buy his flight before we apply for this visa. Does anyone have a similar experience? Or does the EAD/AP card suffice as proof that he is legally residing in the US?

Thanks for any feedback!

Have you tried contacting the Peruvian consulate to ask whether they accept the EAD/AP card as proof that he is in the country legally? I can tell you that it is accepted at the DMV in California for the purpose of obtaining a driver's license.

I am planning on doing that tomorrow, Monday. They aren't open for visa services on the weekend. I've read on this website that the EAD/AP card is often used as proof of legal residency, like what happened in your case. I just don't know if foreign consulates would accept them.
