Understanding Advance Parole and Its Details

How long can you stay out with Advance Parole from USCIS?

Advance Parole is a special document issued by U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) that allows certain non-citizens to re-enter the United States after traveling abroad without needing an immigrant visa. Here's what you need to know:

  1. Duration of Validity:

    • Advance Parole is typically valid for a specific period, often up to one year. The exact length of time you can stay out will be clearly mentioned on the document you receive.
  2. Travel Restrictions:

    • While Advance Parole allows you to travel and return to the U.S., it’s important to stick to the dates on the document. If you try to come back after the document has expired, you may be denied entry into the U.S.
  3. Multiple Entries:

    • Some Advance Parole documents let you enter and leave the U.S. multiple times within the validity period, while others only allow one entry. This detail will also be specified on the document.

To avoid any problems, make sure to read your Advance Parole document carefully and, if you have any questions, talk to an immigration attorney.

How much is the filing fee for Advance Parole?

As of 2023, here are the details about the filing fees:

  1. No Separate Fee with Adjustment of Status:

    • If you apply for Advance Parole at the same time as an adjustment of status application (Form I-485), there is no separate fee. The cost of Advance Parole (Form I-131) is included in the fee for Form I-485, along with employment authorization (Form I-765).
  2. Separate Filing Fee:

    • If you file Form I-131 separately, the fee is $575.
