Infopass Appointment Question
Hi All,

I was checking if I can schedule an infopass appointment at local USCIS field office & stumbled upon this information on USCIS website:

"If you are inside the United States, you can no longer schedule an appointment online using InfoPass for domestic offices. However, you can check your case status, see our case processing times, change your address, and use other tools on our website."

Can someone tell if this is true? We can't schedule an appointment anymore???

Advance Parole Travel -Newark-Dubai-Mumbai and back
Dear All,

Wanted to share my experience of travelling using AP/EAD (I-485 pending) combo card and expired visa.

Visited Mumbai for 3 weeks. Flew Emirates from Newark airport to mumbai Airport with tansit in Dubai.

On return no issues at Mumbai or Dubai airport.

On arrival at Newark Airport US immigration took only 5 mins. First officer reviewed documents and took finger prints then escorted me to secondary inspection which took only 5 mins. They review your documents there and hand you the passport and AP card after review. Very smooth process.

Feel free to use your valid AP/EAD card to travel outside.
Just make sure with airlines (specially transiting countries) that they allow AP dcument. Some tranisting countries insist that Ap holders apply for transit visa.

If possible try to fly direct or use transit airports that accept AP (Emirates does)

Enjoy your travel with AP

Used travel advance parole to travel to Brazil
Hello everyone,

I am so thankful to God to this forum and all the people who posted your experience here. I was afraid to travel but I took a chance after reading some experiences here. I traveled to Brasil for 23 days I just came back 2 days ago. I spent Christmas and New year with my family after 15 years. I overstated my visa and I was skeptical that I could have problems to reentry in USA. I went tru Fort Lauderdale and the officer sent me to second inspection which took 20 minutes waiting and no questions all I had to show was passport and advance parole.
Please don’t be afraid of traveling go enjoy your family.
It is a such relief to be able to go home.
I hope this helps anyone who is not sure about using advance parole.
God bless you all!
