Hello everyone,

I have a question about the i-131 and the advance parole.

Hopefully next week I'm going to send all the documents and start the process to be a US resident.

I have a meeting in December in my country this is why I filled out the i-131, but I don't think Im gonna receive the approval before my trip.

So I call the USCIS asking if with my visa M1 and being on the process getting the green card I'm gonna have any problem to re-enter in US and if this is going to affect the process, she said that I'm not gonna have any problem. But better if I double check with CBP.

I called the number but no one pick up the phone. So I did research if she was right, and I think from what I read, I need to fill the i-131 because my type of visa is not an exception.

In another place I read that I can put in part 3 the consulate of my country and pick up in my country.

Some one know something about that? Im very confuse.

I don't know if you need it but if you do, file it separately from anything else. it goes faster, at least usually. You can just get it sent home as it very unlikely it will still be pending when you are travelling. Just file it asap.
