I Made a mistake on Advance Parole Application/advice help

3 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

Hello VJ Community,

I filed my I-485, 1-765, and 1-131 ( Advance Parole) at the same time.

I Was planning on taking two trips to see my father and mother who both have serious health issues.

On the I-131 AP Application by mistake I marked  only ONE TRIP instead of MORE THAN ONE TRIP .

Does this mean my advance parole document will only be for one trip instead of multiple trips?

Some people have told me that the Advance Parole is valid for one year with multiple trips, regardless if I marked only ONE TRIP.

Will my Advance parole be valid for only one trip or multiple trips?

Should I try to notify USCIS of my mistake and tell them that the Advance Parole for more than one trip?

I received my I-797 receipt notice for advance parole on November 13, 2018. any possibilities I will get my advance parole by June 2019?

The National Benefits Center has my Advance parole and I heard that they are the slowest service center !

I welcome all suggestions .

It is my understanding that AP obtained due to a pending AOS application will be multiple use, regardless of what you checked on the form.

You don't need to even put anything on the form honestly except the basic information. No dates are needed or anything. As mentioned it will be a combo EAD/AP card so once you have it can travel.
