hello people,
I'm scared to visit my country on AP as I overstayed my visa and also worked illegally on my SSN. Will this be any problem?

I have my Infopass appointment in 2 days. My grandmother is seriously ill and I had planned to visit my family a couple of months ago. I have an approved I797b for h1b but my Visa stamping is expired. With the increased denial rate I don't want to risk anything. If I don't get approved for emergency parole and still leave US and get denied for Visa stamping does that mean I abandoned my green card?
Filled on 12 June 2019
Fingerprint review - 10 July 2019
No update since then.
Also during infopass interview, will I be given emergency parole only or can they approve I-131?

I have applied for Academic Training (I was a J-1 holder) when I was done with my Ph.D. program. I start ed working for a year. After that, I applied for J-waiver and was granted J-1Waiver based on no objection. Then, I have applied for green card based on Advance Parole. My Academic Training comes to the end. I need to extend my visa status to continue working, but I haven't receive my EAD card yet. So, If I request an extension from my J-1 visa sponsorship (university), Does it affect my ongoing Greencard Application and how?

Is there anybody who has idea about it, I would really appreciate.

Thank you

Hi everyone,

I have an educational trip coming up in January, but I didn’t realize Advance Parole would take 120 days and my AP will show up at least a month after my planned trip.

Has it taken less time for any of you?

Thank you!!

Hi, guys just want to share my experience with traveling with advance parole. I traveled to Ghana and Nigeria with it, did not have any problems. When I arrived in U.S. all they said was to follow the red line to the second inspection room and hand your document to the officer. Within 15 minutes called my name hand me my passport and the A.Parole, didn't ask me any question. All he said was if I brought any language with me it will at the baggage area. That was it. Thank God!!!! So guys is safe to travel with it.

Hi Guys,

I'm looking to travel back home to England for Christmas.

Is it safe to travel with Advance Parole?

Some people say it's OK other people say you can only travel for an emergency?

Please advise...

My wife returned from a two week family visit in Myanmar in October 2019.

At the airport in Uangon, Myanmar, the airline check in clearly rejected her combo card.

After she shower then the CBP Carrier Information Guide, the clerk brought in a supervisor, who glanced at the combo card and told the clerk to issue a boarding pass.

Connecting in Taipei was no problem. No one looked at her card.

At SFO whe was in immigration and customs for 3 hours. 2 hours to queue up for the passport control booth. Then sent to secondary and an hour waiting her turn. When her turn cane they didn’t ask any questions and after scanning her combo card sent her to the customs secondary inspection with her checked luggage. Customs secondary inspection immediately released her.

She said that while in the secondary inspection waiting room, the CBP officers were very kind:

* They ordered pizza for people who had been there a long time or we’re going to held there a long time.

* When asked, they would call family members explaining why their loved ones were not in the arrivals hall yet.

Except for the wait time it was a good experience and she would do it again.

Hey guys, I have had my EAD/advanced parole combo card since May 2019. Me & my husband got married September 2018 & we filed i765 & i485. We are awaiting our interview date. My EAD/AP combo card is valid until March 2020 & I haven’t used it yet but my Grandma is sick & I would like to visit Ireland. I entered the US 10 years ago as a tourist & ended up staying! My worry is will I be okay re-entering the US after my trip to Ireland? Will the fact I overstayed affect my re-entry? Does advanced parole guarantee my re-entry? Super nervous to travel outside the US but would love to see my Grandma as she is very ill. Please any advise would be greatly appreciated! Thank you all.
