Advanced Parole procedure - anyone already done this?

Hi Guys,

I'm about to travel out of the country with my K2 kids to take them to their Dads and Grandparents in the UK and will be making multiple journeys to and from the US over the next 4 weeks.

Has anyone travelled using their AP card yet and can anyone shed any light on what can be expected? I'd rather be prepared fully!!

Thanks!

A lot of people have travelled on AP. The only extra thing is that you will go to secondary upon arrival, and will probably not be able to check in for the flight online.

Went to Canada on AP, came back to US and they just punch in a few things into the system when you present your passport and AP card (mine doubles as a Work Authorization as well).

Only thing is that I had multiple entry before, but they don't have that for AP so you will have to fill out an I-94 when you come back to the US.

Not to scare you but, you should also be aware that just because you have AP, doesn't necessarily mean they will let you back in (says so on the card).


I'm Canadian on a TN and he's my American boy!

Thanks all that answered! I'm going all belt and braces with my documents. And yes, I'm aware that they can refuse at entry. Unfortunately its a risk I have to take for family reasons.
