Hey everyone,

If a person leaves the country while their AOS is still processing, will that person be able to return to the states on a tourist visa? Granted, I understand that the person will no longer be able to obtain a green card.

Thanks,

Daniella

Straight answer: unlikely.

The terms of granting a tourist visa is that you prove you'd return to your home country after a short visit. With a pending immigration petition such as an I-485, though recently abandoned, they are unlikely to grant one. What would warrant a sudden trip abroad without getting Advanced Parole before leaving?

Oh, then please stay put until you do get the AP. If you leave without it, you will most likely have to do the IR petition from Spain - a separation from your spouse for another 8 mths - 1 year; your tourist visa application will most certainly be denied.

I understand, just hang in there and hope for the best. I'd love to travel home too but just have to wait out my AOS process too.
