GC-EAD approved but I-131 didn't get any notification
My status has been changed on December 19, 2019, we ordered your new card for Receipt Number for GC EAD but for I-131 I didn't get any notification yet.
how long will it take to approve i-131 (AP) after EAD approved?
I applied both on same date.

Don’t be afraid to use AP to travel
I have been a silent reader for a while so I figured I’d share my recent experience using AP to help others who are hesitant. I also want to thank everyone who share their experiences, it is sometimes all we need to go ahead and take the chance!

Anyway, I used my combo card to travel to my home country in the Caribbean for a couple of weeks. I flew from JFK in New York. Upon my return, all I needed to show was my passport and the advance parole document to the cbp officer. The officer took my fingerprints and then sent me to a room for secondary inspection. I spent about 10 mins waiting and then I was called. I was asked where do I reside in New York and who do live with. I currently live with my wife, a US citizen. I was free to go after that. Very smooth experience. Best of luck to all! Love

Traveling with Advance Parole
First I want to thank this for Fourm and everyone who has shared there experience. It really helped my husband and I

I-485 Pending ; NYC - Manhattan office
My Husband has his EAD card and was approved for Advance Parole. My Husband came here on a K-1 VISA

We Traveled to El Salvador on Nov 30th and returned to New York JFK On Dec 14th. We went through the first inspection and the officer asked why we traveled, I politely said that we went to see my husband's granfather who was sick. She said ok, and told us that my husband would need a secondary inspection and that once he gets a green card he would not need to do that anymore.

We went through the secondary inspection, the officer gave the other officer his Passport and I-512 Letter and I heard her say, "his wife is USC" in less then 5 minutes he called out my husband's name and we were all set to go. Passport and I-512 was stampted and we were off.

A lot of people told me we shouldnt travel with Advance Parole but we honestly didnt have a problem here or in El Salvador.

Expediting Advance Parole
I am planning to expedite my Advance Parole Document since I need to travel outside US in Feb 2020. My father is having a major surgery in Feb. It's already been 112 days since I applied for my Combo Card. However, I don't think it will be approved by Feb due to current delays.

Can anyone advise me on what should I do "EXPEDITING I-131" or "EMERGENCY ADVANCE PAROLE".

I fear with emergency parole they will only give me 30 days Advance Parole and I might want to stay more than that to take care of my father and his business.

Will Medical Bills and a Letter from Doctor work as a proof in this case?

Advice and Suggestions appreciated! Thanks

Preclearance in Abu Dhabi
My wife entered the USA on a K-1 visa.

She joined me a business trip on a different airline because she decided in the last minute. Fares on my flight were more than we wanted to pay, The same was true on the return flight.

Her connection was in Abu Dhabi which has US-CBP preclearance.

After reaching passport control she was sent to secondary.

After 30 minutes waiting she was asked:

* why she was not traveling with her husband.

* did she get married

After that she was able to enter the USA departure area and board her flight.

AP Go ahead and travel !!!!
I came to this country as student in 2011. Got out of status in 2013. Worked illegaly and stayed since. I got my AP in june 2019. I was so scared to travel. My mother got sick so i bought my ticket and together with my small kids went to Europe for 1 whole month. I was scared as hell and stressed for weeks...Got to JFK today. First control was 1minute- fingerprints and picture. Took us all (my kids are citizens) to the room for second control. We waited maybe 8minutes-4 people were behind us. I only heard my name and they said you are all set. Bye. No questions. Nothing. If you get your AP you have it for a reason and if you have your combo card the purpose is to travel... trvael stress free!!! Im planning 1 week trip to Jamaica in March for some vacay finally;-)
God bless!
