Hey fellow VJ peeps,

I've read many topics that talk about traveling before receiving the AP but only after the biometrics is complete. This isn't very clear to me and seems like theres a bit of a gray area.

Here is my situation:

Wife received green card and she is good to travel. Applied for sons Adjustment of Status along with the AP. He has completed his Biometrics but have heard nothing about the AP we applied for 2 months ago. Called to inquire about the delay and was told they will send a correspondence via mail shortly. Flight leaves May 03rd to Thailand and we want to be on that flight.

My question is:

When I applied for the AP I specified for the Approved AP to be sent to the consulate in Chiang Mai, Thailand. Would there be an issue if we left the country on May 03rd with out the approval yet? Is there a chance it won't be approved and our son get stuck in Thailand?

Any info would be appreciated!

There might be a chance of being denied. Leaving before AP is approved may have USCIS consider the AOS application abandoned. I wouldn't suggest leaving without AP in hand.

Good luck
