Advance Passenger Information with Advance Parole

8 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

Hi everyone,

 

I am a current EAD/AP card holder while my AOS is pending (following my K1 visa process and then marrying my US citizen wife back in November 2018).

 

I am originally from the UK and just recently booked my flights to travel back home for the first time (woo!) using my EAD/AP combo card.

 

I am flying with British Airways and they are requesting the following advance passenger information prior to check in:

Does anybody have any advice for how to properly fill this out? As I understand it I am neither a visa holder or green card holder and so the correct answer would be 'No, I don't have either'.

 

I'm wondering if anybody else has had experience flying with British Airways using advance parole?

 

Thank you for your help.

Roland

In your situation, you won’t be able to use the online check in and you will need to “desk check in” at the airport where your AP card can be visually assessed. Not everyone can check in online, unfortunately.

I don't think it will let you check in online if you choose that option. 

What does it say when you click on the information icon regarding the visa?

It asks me to add my US visa number. I suppose I could enter my K1 visa number but that has long since expired so that doesn't seem accurate.

 

This advance passenger information is separate from checking in and unless I'm misunderstood I believe I need to fill this out prior to arriving at the airport even if I wait to check in at the airport.

 

I'm leaning towards selecting 'No, I don't have either' and arriving in good time at the airport for check in and to clear up any confusion.

 

Thanks for the replies,

Roland

I had a similar situation.

Airline did their thing manually by phone.

API is a requirement before check in and any information can be corrected in person at the airport. 

Ideally, it should be done 72 hours prior departure, but the airline can send amended passenger manifests 30 minutes prior departure. 

 

So, you're right I think, filling it up now; if you arrive the customary 3 hours before an international flight, you'll have more than enough time to fix the issue.
