Work permit and Advance Parole

Filed: K-1 Visa Country: Japan

Hello all,

I am finding out now that the Employment Authorization Document (EAD) will include the text, "Serves as I-512 Advance Parole." Back in August, I filed for Application to Register Permanent Residence or Adjust Status (I-485), Application for Employment Authorization (I-765), and Application for Travel Document" (I-131) after entering the States with a K1 visa (and marrying my now-husband within 90 days). Back in September, I got my biometrics done for I-485 and I-765, and when I checked on my status for I-765 today, I found out that it is in the "card making process," the last stage. I haven't received any information about my status for I-131 but after finding out that the EAD and Advance Parole are combined, can I assume that my Advance Parole request has been accepted (now that the EAD card is being created)? I would love to hear what others experienced, preferably those who have gone through something similar this year (because things seem to change year after year!).

Also, does anyone know why it's called, "I-512 Advance Parole," when the application I put in was I-131? At first, I thought I sent the wrong application in but after reading this USCIS to Issue Employment Authorization and Advance Parole Card for Adjustment of Status Applicants: Questions and Answers , I felt much better. Still, I have the above question lingering, so if any of you can clarify this for me, I'd really appreciate it.

Thank you!

The updates for I-765 and I-131 are not synchronized, I noticed the same thing for me, but no worries, your card will be a combo-card and will serve as an EAD and AP.

I-131 is the form, I-512 is the "result approval" of the I-131 application.

Same for the green card. The application form is I-485, but the technical name for the green card is I-551.

Nothing to worry about, you did nothing wrong and filed in the right forms! :)

Yes, the EAD most likely has the AP on it. I-131 does not require biometrics.

My notifications for my EAD and AP were staggered by a few days. I got notification of my EAD first, then my AP. When the card arrived, I got one card that served as both my EAD and my AP. The notifications aren't very reliable, sometimes they're late, sometimes they don't show up at all. My greencard just showed up in my mailbox one day without any notification whatsoever so don't worry if you don't get one for your AP, there's a good chance it was approved alongside your EAD.
