Advanced parole is a type of travel document issued by the U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services that allows you to travel back into the United States without applying for a visa. While an advanced parole does not replace a passport, airlines and other transportation companies will accept an advanced parole document instead of a visa as proof of your authorization to travel to the country.
You may consider applying for advanced parole if:
- You have a pending Application to Register Permanent Residence or to Adjust Status (Form I-485)
- You have a pending Application for Asylum and for Withholding of Removal
If you have one of these pending applications and intend to leave the United States, you must apply for and receive advanced parole before you leave the country. If you leave the U.S. without obtaining advance parole, USCIS will likely deny your case or assume you have abandoned your application.
Even with an advanced parole, it is important to discuss with your attorney the potential difficulties you may encounter while seeking reentry into the United States.
Youngblood & Associates can help you determine if advanced parole is the best option for your situation; guide and represent you through the application process; and advise you on best travel practices should you receive advanced parole, in order to ensure that you are allowed reentry into the United States.
