Any got a Schengen visa on EAD/AP.

i have a work trip coming up in April to Germany. I went to German consulate and they did not accept AP/EAD as a valid proof.

 

anyone has experience in getting schengen visa on EAD/AP 

AP is only for you to be able to return to the US. If you want to get a visa to go to another country you will need to use your passport.

Yes i had my valid Indian passport too. But the German consulate did not accept my Indian passport and EAD/AP has my valid legal status proof and did not grant me the visa

Even having a green card doesn't mean they would approve you for a visa. While maybe more likely, they still can turn it down. They have their own requirements and a 'temporary' EAD/AP card isn't enough apparently.

I looked at the website and they would only accept a green card and even then, that would not be a guarantee obviously.

My husband received a Schengen visa and we traveled to Germany and back and used the EAD/AP combo card. 
Did you go to the German consulate and they told you there that they do not accept advanced parole? Because that doesn't sound right in my experience.

It specifically says you have to prove US residency so that sounds like they screwed up.

OP is applying fora tourist visa, there is no have these documents and you get one, it is in the end subjective as to whether he meets their requirements.

@DeeptiG does your EAD/AP card say "Serves as I-512 Advance Parole' at the bottom of the card? I just spoke to one of my contacts at the German consulate in Chicago and she said that someone was turned away yesterday because the card they presented was just the EAD and it said 'Not valid for reentry to US' at the bottom. Otherwise they should accept the EAD/AP combo card as proof of intention to reenter the US.

I was not given a AP Card, but i have a valid EAD and approved AP ; which has a date on it saying "paroled" till Oct 19 2019. When we applied for EAD, our AP did not come along hence i have been applying AP seperately  and have never been denied entry in or out of other countries. i travelled to Mexico , Dubai and India all in last 1 year .and i explained the same to them.

do you think they can reconsider this?  i really do not understand their reasoning for denying. \

Until you receive US citizenship you are required to follow the requirements for your country of citizenship. Although being a US permanent resident may increase your chances of obtaining a visa to another country, it is not a guarantee.

Were you able to talk to someone at the Consulate face to face or was this via a Schengen visa application center?
