Do I need to submit a new I-131 for Emergency Advance Parole?

1 post in this topic

Recommended Posts

My little sister had to have emergency surgery done during the birth of my niece last week and I'd really like to go home to Sweden to visit her in the hospital. I received NOA1 for my AOS, EAD and AP on Dec. 29th and did biometrics on Jan. 17th so I don't think I'll be receiving my travel documents anytime soon. Now I'm wondering whether I need to submit a new I-131 application to apply for the Emergency Advance Parole. The USCIS website states the following:

When visiting a local office to request emergency advance parole, you should bring the following items:

A completed and signed Form I-131, Application for Travel Document

The correct I-131 filing fee

Evidence to support the emergency request (e.g. medical documentation, death certificate)

Two passport-style photos.

Could I just bring a copy of the I-131 I submitted with my I-485 with the corresponding filing fee proof, or will I need to submit a new application and pay the fee again? (I believe it has increased significantly since I filed).

Thank you for any help you might be able to provide me with! I'd really appreciate it. The immigration process can be so confusing at times :(
