Travel from Schengen area to the Unites States with advance parole combo card
I just wanted to share my experience after using my advance parole to enter US from the Schengen area. Beginning of April 2021, my husband and I traveled back to Greece to visit family. We are in the process of getting our Green cards for 2 years now and we both have advance parole EAD combo cards. My husband also has an H1B visa (faculty position in research) and he was able to secure a National Interest Exception from the embassy, allowing him to fly back to US directly from Greece. I was very worried about myself travelling back to US directly from the Schengen area due to the proclamation banning entry to pretty much everybody (exempt US citizens, green card holder and students) as the proclamation does not mention Advance Parole holders at all. Yesterday we took a flight from Athens to US via Paris (AirFrance and Delta airlines). The first checkpoint was at the Paris airport were our documents were checked by a US person from border control (CBD). I was surprised that they had someone there. After a careful check and a few questions we were both able to board the plane. They asked me if I also have National Interest Exception and I said no, I have my advance parole and apparently it was enough. I was sooo relieved! Then we arrived at JFK. At the border control we were taken to another room for extra questions. They asked again if I have a National Interest Exception and I said no, I have my advance parole. The officer insisted that since I am using my advance parole to enter US, my husband should be using his advance parole too (he is the Green card petitioner). He did not fight them on that and he also used hid advance parole to enter. After a couple more questions we were given our passports back and said we are good to go! From my experience I would say advance parole holders are able to travel back directly from Schengen area, without having to quarantine to another country for 14 days.
I’m hoping somebody will able to help me out. I applied for an Emergency Advance Parole on March 30, 2021 at the Atlanta Field Office. Lucky it got approved that same day, since it was an Emergency I left the next day. I came back to the U.S April 26th with no problems at all. I now have to renew DACA which I typically have an attorney do all the paperwork for me. Thankfully I now know how to do it on my own without having to spend over $500 on an attorney. My question is on For I-765 it ask for last entry to the U.S and obviously my previous entry was unlawfully but now it changed due to me being let back in the country in Advance Parole. Would I need to include that entry or should I just leave it as is. If anybody knows of this could you pleeeeease help me. I contacted my attorney just for that simple question but he didn’t wanna give me any info on it. In advance, TH YYYY X!
Originally on a F-1 visa, Married in June 2020
Documents were officially summited in Early August 2020
Mid August 2020 our online portal read received and that our documents are at the Texas center.
The Biometric was completed at the end of March 2021
Tickets have been submitted to hear about our case.. no response back. We have been informed we cannot submit anymore, due to them being backed up.
I am looking for an idea of when to expect the AP card with or without EAD?
What are peoples experiencing?
Our portal has NOT been updated since the August received update... not even for the scheduling or the biometrics
I'm asking for advice. I just applied for advance parole and was wondering if it were an issue if I went to visit family in Puebla and decided to go to let's say Cancun and then decided to fly from there back to the US. Would there be an issue or a chance of being questioned why I was there? Any advice or experiences would be appreciated.
