Hi everyone,

I just discovered this forum, and I'm so happy to read all the positive experiences about traveling on AP, although I haven't seen any with pending asylum cases. Here is my story so far:

> Applied for asylum in Jan 2017 and ended up overstaying a student visa. I haven't been called for an interview on my asylum case and probably won't be called any time soon because of the major delays in old asylum case processing. Thanks to Trump.

> An uncle of mine got a stroke in October 2019 and is being treated in a 3rd country (not my home country). I REALLY want to visit him!!!

> I told my lawyer that I would like to apply for AP and he explained all the consequences to me. He said:
     > Getting allowed back into the U.S. is not guaranteed with AP, especially as an asylum seeker who overstayed a visa.
     > Getting allowed back into the U.S. will depend on the immigration officer.
     > The worst case scenario would be if the officer asks me why I can't just seek asylum in the 3rd country, since I was
         granted a visa to visit and have relatives there. In this case, the officer would try to send me back to the 3rd country.
     > The other scenario would be if the officer detains me for overstaying my student visa. In this case, I could end up in
         detention for 3 months as my asylum case gets reviewed by a judge (honestly, I don't think this would be terrible
         because at least my application would FINALLY be reviewed. I'm tired of waiting!)

> I decided to apply for AP anyway and my application was sent today (2/17/2020). My lawyer says it can take up to 3 months to get a response, so I'm going to sit tight and wait.

I will keep you all updated. If anyone else has applied for AP as an asylum applicant, please share your experience and advice. I'm so happy I found this forum!

Take care.

Hello all
This platform has helped me a lot and I want to thank everyone for taking the time to post their experiences.
I had a pending asylum case but then I found a job that will sponsor me and got my combo AP card through AOS from my new job. I would want to travel using my AP and travel back home to see my family that I haven't seen in 15 years. Any advice? I am scared of going and not being able to come back. I have no criminal back ground and did not over stay visa.

Please help! thanks!

Hi everyone! I’m from india married to a US citizen. Just received my EAD/AP combo card. My husband and I are travelling to Mumbai next week to visit family. My papers were filed in my married name, so my combo card has my married name. My passport is still in my maiden name. I know I shouldn’t have trouble with that in the US because they probably have all my information on their system and we will carry our original marriage certificate. However, I am nervous about immigration in Mumbai on our way back to Washington DC. Will the marriage certificate be good enough proof? My husband will be with me so they can easily see that our last names match. But I’m concerned about whether or not they will give us any trouble in india. Any insights will be greatly appreciated!

Good afternoon everyone.

I have to say this forum helped me out to decide to use Advance Parole and travel to Europe I will be traveling in 2 weeks from know. I have overstated my visa for 2 years and I have worked during that time but I have filed all taxes every year. I am little bit afraid so if anyone was in the similar situation please let me know how was your experience with CBP.

I know a lot of members said that overstay doesn’t make any problems with returning back to the country. I will be traveling from/to Chicago O’Hare.

Please let me know your thoughts.

Hello guys,

I am about to send my renewal documents for my I-765, but this time around, I want to send I-131 with it.
My I-485 case is still pending.

I just have few questions/confirmations:

 - I dont have pay a fee for I-131 same as I-765 right?
 - Can someone give me an example of their filled up form (without any personal information) which they later used to travel for personal reasons such as visiting family.

I would appreciate all your help!

Thank you!
