Leaving the US on Advanced Parole

4 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

Hi VJ,

In out wait for NOA2, we have been watching another clock as well. My fiancé's home country has an interesting system by which they require exit permits to leave the country. So here is the scoop and the question. We are estimating that she will be here in March'13 and we will marry right away. Her exit permit expires in August'13. She believes she has to return to Uzb for about 1 week, also to see her mom, to get her exit permit renewed. Yes, she could renew it in the states, but dual purpose visit to see family. So, we will file for Advanced Parole, in case the AOS is not finished and in her hands before departure. The question is, what exactly do they give you when you get AP? Is it a document, a stamp in your passport, something else? When they renew her exit permit, they will also re-issue a new passport, so if the AP is something that gets inserted into her passport, this will preclude her from going, also will the CBP have a problem if she departed on an old passport and returned on a new one?

Hmm. Not sure I can answer everything.

If you file for EAD and Advance Parole you will receive a 'combo card'. Its basically a credit card looking thing with your picture on it and some numbers and such. You use it in combination with your passport when you travel. It takes apx 3 months to receive after you file for AOS. If you have an emergency and need to travel before then you can file for emergency AP, (but it may not be granted) in those cases you receive one or two sheets of paper, with your picture printed on it and the same types of numbers that you present when traveling.

As for getting a new passport- I have no idea. All I can say is, shes going to want to be sure shes able to keep her old one with the 1-94 in it.
