    Processing times for I-131 Advanced Parole

    To close out this topic, my husband got his EAD card with AP last week. What a relief.

    @thepanda Yes, we sent the medical with the AOS package. Today, we got the approval letters for both I-131 and I-765, and the letter with interview date. A good day indeed. We don't have the combo card yet but it says one can travel with the approval letter for the I-131. The status for the I-131 is not updated online yet. Good luck to everyone.

    Hello @Bfree3 & @talad, glad to hear about the combo card. Fingers crossed. For the timeline for my husband who is a Swedish citizen, I am green card holder (not sure why it is not showing up at the bottom like for others + I can't update the AP and EAD section in my timeline as it says it is the wrong visa type. Not sure how to fix): Prio date November 30, 2016 I-130 approved April 2018 (still not updated on website) Prio date for AOS package April 24, 2018 (sent I-485, I-131 and I-765 in same package) Got email that interview was being scheduled in Stockholm (can't remember when). Changed it to AOS as husband is in the USA on E2 visa. Got an RFE in July for birth certificate (which Sweden doesn't have). Responded on July 19. August 1, 2018: email that they are ready to schedule the interview August 21, 2018: email that new card for EAD has been ordered and will be sent to our home August 22, 2108: email that interview has been scheduled We have signed up for "Informed delivery" at USPS (there is also an app), then you get an email every day with images of all the mail you are going to get that day. Very helpful. Good luck to everyone.

    Hi, I have been silent for a while as not much has happened but this week we received email and online status update that 'new card is being produced' for EAD. The I-131 status has not updated however (advanced parole/travel document). I wonder if you think the EAD card will have both the Advanced Parole and EAD even though Advanced parole hasn't had any movement? Is it most common that the card is a combo card? We also received notice that interview is scheduled. Online update + email and text mssg. Waiting for the letter to find out when the interview is. PD Nov 30, 2016. F2A

    We are sending a letter now to let them know we are changing from consular to AOS. Thank you for all your advise.

    Hello, 1. @Tenreyro Yes, the I-130 was approved in April. We submitted the I-485, I-131, and I-765 after approval of I-130. It is a family based I-485. 2. @Bfree3 My husband is currently in the USA on an E2 visa. We have applied for travel authorization as the E2 does not allow him to travel abroad while the green card is in process (he needs the I-131 approved to travel to not have abandoned his application). The receipt for the I-485 says 'Application to Register Permanent Residence or Adjust Status '. The USCIS office address is USCIS, National Benefits Center in MO. 3. Biometrics were done in Boston a few weeks ago 4. We are fine with him traveling to Stockholm, especially if it is faster but we don't want to risk it if that means they might think he abandoned his application. We have a lawyer so we will ask her tomorrow but you are so knowledgeable that I wanted to ask here too. You two are amazing and much appreciated. Best wishes and thank you, Gisela

    Hi, I just received an email from NVC today that NVC has received our approved immigrant visa application for my husband. He did biometrics a few weeks ago. It included our case number, and instructions to pay the fees, and then next step is the interview. I feel this was pretty fast, isn't it? We live in Boston. A few questions: 1. The letter says the interview will be at the embassy in Stockholm which surprised me as my husband is in the USA. He can certainly do it in Stockholm but he doesn't have an approved I-131 Travel authorization. We are checking with our lawyer now. Anyone have any insight? And do I go with him to Stockholm as his sponsor? 2. Anyone know how long it takes before one gets the interview date after having paid and submitted all forms? I realize it depends on WHERE the interview is but any information helps. 3. I read that you find out directly that interview if you are approved or not. If approved, does that mean that he 'has the green card' (not physically but some version in his passport)? I am not familiar with the process from now on and aminterested in any insight. Thank you!
  11. Hello, we submitted the I-131 for advanced parole and have receipt date April 24, 2018. Questions: 1/ Anyone else submit around that time or the months before that? I am curious to see who has gotten approvals. 2/ Our “USCIS Office” is the National Benefits Center (NBC) and we have filed a family-based Form I-485 and then it says we should check processing times for our local field office > we are in Boston. Does that mean we check the field office in Boston or the service center Vermont? I am guessing Boston but they don't list any processing times Main purpose of this question is to 'meet' others who have submitted I-131 and are waiting so that I can get an idea of how long it might be. Thank you!

    We have sent in the I-485, I-765 and I-131 now (our lawyer sent them in). We have gotten the receipts for all 3 (got them in the mail May 4). I want to look up the waiting time for especially the I-131 but I don't know which service center to pick? Our receipts say USCIS in Missouri (MO) at the bottom of the form (the I-797 notices for all 3 forms) but there is no such office listed in the dropdown at https://egov.uscis.gov/processing-times/ Our I-130 approval letter says California at the bottom. Thank you!
  13. Yes, we got the approval by mail on April 13, 2018. Case status is not updated online but we have the letter. Thanks for asking.
  14. PD November 30, 2016. Approval received in the mail April 13, 2018. Status not updated on website (still says Received)
  15. Hi @Tenreyro where did you see this? It is very encouraging to hear. We are Nov 30, 2016 but no approval yet.
