How does my status as a permanent resident/advance parole traveller affect my Global Entry for getting back into the USA?

Recommended Posts

I had Global Entry for fast re-entry to the USA before I got engaged and entered the country on a K-1 visa. I'm now in the process of adjusting to a Green Card but haven't obtained it yet and am soon to receive my 'advance parole' letter which should allow me to re-enter the USA.

 

Will I still be able to use the Global Entry kiosks for faster re-entry while this process is pending or will I have to queue up and show my AP letter to somebody??

I think you'll have to queue up and present your Advance Parole documentation to the border officer. I traveled last year using an AP/ EAD combo card and when I arrived back at LAX and presented my documents, I was sent to secondary processing as according to the agent I was 'one of those funny ones who doesn't have status, but doesn't not have status'.

 

I waited for about 30 mins in secondary processing before being asked some basic questions about when I got married, where I live etc and then was allowed through.

See post #7 for NEXUS experience as an example: https://www.trackitt.com/usa-discussion-forums/i131/1787110043/global-entry-pending-aos-advance-parole Expect secondary inspection regardless.

No, because you are entering as a parolee not under the entry category recorded on your profile 


YMMV
