AP - takes 150 - 180 days???

7 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

I e-filed for my AP yesterday. Then today I checked the case status online to make sure it got on there. First of all, it said that "Your I131 APPLICATION FOR USCIS TRAVEL DOCUMENT" instead of Advance Parole. Does anyone know if that makes a difference because I know I applied for Advance Parole...

And then it said it is taking between 150 and 180 days to process...isn't that ridiculous? I thought it was like 30-60 days :unsure:

Advance Parole IS a travel document. :) It allows you to travel in advance of getting your green card.

Davin,

There's no crossing "at will" under any circumstance - the CBP officer at the border will always have something important to say about it.

Yodrak

on the subject of an AP.... is that a one time trip, or does that allow one to cross at will while waiting on perminent residence?
