I have traveled with people on Advanced Parole - nothing terrible occurred.   Sometimes you get a quick trip via secondary if the first agent has a hard time pulling it up.

It seems there’s a lot of worry to travel with it, which makes me worried. I know that’s what it’s for though.. what did you need to bring with you? Pending aos? We filed AOS over a year ago, and the combo card expires on 12/31/20.

Just the card (and your passport of course).  We have a house in Mexico and have taken K1  combo card holders.  Ho issues driving or fling back.  I came back from Switzerland with an AP holder and they had to go into secondary because the first IO had an issue bringing up "photo".  It took 2 minutes at JFK in secondary to clear up.  I've had bunches of acquaintances have no issues on LAX and Miami.

My husband is from the Dominican Republic and we just traveled back from there this month using his ap. He passed through customs quickly with no issues at all

This, my wife just got a combo card and we wanted to visit our old country for 3 weeks. But there is some people online that are saying if traveling with AP there is no guarantee that "they" will let you back in the USA at the airport. So confusing.

There is no "guarantee" that anyone, other than a citizen or national, will be admitted back into the the US.  So you aren't going to travel until citizenship?

Yes, there is no guarantee that non-citizens will be allowed entry to the US.  But the risk of your wife being denied entry simply because she traveled for 3 weeks with a valid AP is very low.  No need to let exaggerated fears stop your wife from using the AP for the purpose it was issued.

It is indeed no guarantee - the thing tho is that there's NEVER any guarantee on anything in life, much less when US CPB/USCIS etc are involved 😜 

 

So practically it only means that without the AP, they wouldn't even start thinking about letting you back in the US. The AP grants you that they will think about it and if they find you fit to enter, they will. And also, if you left the USA during your AOS process without having the AP, it would mean you abandoned your AOS application. 

 

When reading the wording of such info, please remember that the USA is a country where you can sue anybody for anything - so ppl will be very likely to not promise you anything, because if they promised sth, an American would feel entitled to it and upon not gettting it would sue ( <----please note I'm not aiming for a 100% factual accuracy, it;s just a lighthearted illustration). That's why they are being soooo explicit about "no guarantee". 


"Life is a journey." At this moment, it's taking me to the USA to the woman I love.
