I applied for green card by marriage.
I got an EAD card today without advance parole, I realized they do it separate now.
Do you have any idea a long it takes to get advance parole after EAD card?
Any experience with traveling to Schengen countries with EAD/AP?
I am planning to visit Spain for tourism, and I have my EAD/AP card. My H1-B visa stamping has expired, but I do have valid I-797A showing visa extensions as well.
I understand that the EAD/AP card is only for entering back into the United States and it is not for entering into a Schengen country. I will need to apply for a Schengen tourist visa for the participating Schengen country in their US consulate. What I am not sure about is whether they will approve a visa if I am on EAD/AP (and with I-797A extensions) instead of having an unexpired H1-B visa stamping.
Recently, I traveled to Mexico and I had to apply for a Mexican tourist visa. I did not have any problems in getting the tourist visa and re-entering back to the US with the EAD/AP combo card from Mexico. But I am not sure about the rules for Schengen countries.
What experiences do you have in traveling to Schengen countries with an EAD/AP combo card?
Hello everyone, I have a vawa case that is pending. When I submitted the forms I submitted all I-485, I-360, I-765, and I-131 together. My I-131( Advance parole) was approved and my I-485 shows that my fingerprints have been applied to case. My question is would it be safe to travel to my home country, Mexico, if only my advance parole was approved? Would this be enough to be granted re-entry? I've discussed this with my lawyer but she advised against it because there might be a risk that I can be denied re-entry back to the US, but I am reading that a lot of people are having positive experiences with traveling with advance parole. Can someone please share their thoughts and experience with this. Thanks.
Hey guys. I really need a second opinion. I’ve applied for green card and for advance parole few weeks ago. My mom needs to have surgery soon to remove the gall bladder. I know is not a big deal, but she’s going to be hospitalized for a few days and I’m her only child and she don’t have anyone to help her. My layer recommended to do a expedite request for advance parole. What do you’ll think? Im really nervous of the idea that my mom will be all alone at the hospital without anything or anyone around. Do you’ll think that it possible to get expedited for that situation? Thank you I’ll appreciate your opinion.

Hello guys, I have been reading a lot positive comments about how it’s safe to travel with your AP. I have my AP since almost 3 years now and I just got my renewal now. I want to ask if it’s safe for me to use to travel to Nigeria? I’m scared to use it ever since they gave it to me and my interview was cancel because I file for vawa case so I don’t know what to do.
Traveling to US on AP through Abu Dhabi (Immigration preclearance)
Hi - My wife will be traveling to US on a AP through Abu Dhabi. As you might know, Abu Dhabi has US immigration pre-clearance which means you complete your US immigration in Abu Dhabi before boarding your flight to US. This could be beneficial in general if everything is smooth so you can relax in the long leg from Abu Dhabi to US knowing you have cleared immigration. I would like to know if anyone in this forum has experience traveling on AP through Abu Dhabi. I am interested to know a couple of things
1. How different is the immigration experience in Abu Dhabi, especially because I am not sure if the officers in Abu Dhabi can make certain exceptions which otherwise the officers in US might make. In my wife's case, her AP was approved after she left US for an emergency on a humanitarian basis. The USCIS officer did tell me that my wife could use the AP to enter even while it will be effective after she left US. In this case I am not sure if the CBP officers in US would have more idea than the ones in Abu Dhabi with respect to admitting my wife to enter US.
2. The layover in Abu Dhabi is 3 hours. Will this time be enough to complete immigration and board the connecting flight to US especially when using AP where secondary inspection might be involved.
