One way vs round trip

5 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

As long as you cancel the return portion of your ticket when you arrived then you should be fine (this is important as you don't want them to think you have left and abandoned your AOS when you haven't actually boarded the plane). Alternatively, book the return date for wayyyyy in the future when you do actually intend to return for a visit (once you have your EAD/AP), or just have the return date changed for later in the future once you have arrived.

Hope that helps, good luck!

As said above. Make sure you cancel the return portion of the ticket.

The airlines can sometimes incorrectly indicate that you in fact departed the country on the flight and this will cause your AOS to be marked abandoned without actually manually checking to see whether you were actually on the flight.

The manifest would have shown you as a registered passenger and then you have an uphill battle trying to convince USCIS that you never actually left and your petition is still valid.
