Using the Advance Parole Options for an AOS

6 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

Hello, I wanted to check and see whats the procedure when you are on an AOS in the USA and have an AP document (advance parole). What do you show the airline when returning to the USA? They might ask for a VISA and the only one is the expired K1 that was used to come to the US to get married and Adjust Status.

Also, what else does one need to show the US Immigration Officer on arrival? The AP doc + passport? Anything else?

Your ticket, passport and the AP. Also bring marriage certificate if it is a female that changed name through marriage and has the ticket in the maiden name shown on her passport, and AP in married name.

You are being paroled back into the US, and not using a visa to enter. The K-1 became null and void when you used it to enter the US.

Thank you...well we will just bring the Marriage Cert...(we are a same sex couple). So Delta Airlines know about these AP documents? I always see them looking for the Visa sticker (I think thats what its called) in peoples passports

You can always contact the airline ahead of time and let them know you will be using the AP travel document from the USCIS when re-entering the US, and wanted to make sure the airline employees know what the AP document is so you won't have any troubles during your travels.

I am in a similar situation. I have been waiting for my AOS 8 months already, and finally when I really thought I am out of normal processing times I requested information. For some reason my case is sent in Nevada, which is not anywhere close where I applied from... They are way behind on processing cases, so I thought I might have a gap before I ever get anything back from them again, and go home. However, travelling with AP seems quite tricky. What I read today, and didn't know before is that there must be less than 180 days of unlawful presence in the US territory, meaning from day of expiration of you K1 visa to NOA1. That part I seem to cover well. I have less than 100 days. Still stressful though, in which cases they might consider you abandoning your case? Overall, how to make sure we're in our best position to re-enter on Parole?
