Recent AP Instructions found on I-131

Recommended Posts

Hello All:


My current AP had expired so I wanted apply for a new one. I noticed few significant changes in the form instructions as below.

You have a pending application to adjust status, Form I-485, and you seek to travel abroad for "urgent humanitarian reasons" or in furtherance of a "significant public benefit," which may include a personal or family emergency or bona fide business reasons. 




And in the instructions for filling out the form, it requires 

... you must attach:



(2) An explanation or other evidence showing the circumstances that warrant issuance of an Advance Parole Document



It is painful to read something like this :(  I have so far used AP to go visit family and friends. Can we not do that anymore, does it have to be a proven emergency. Please suggest.


Thank you

Thanks a lot. I see the same mentioned previous years too. I had applied for APs past 4/5 years but never noticed these instructions, must be getting too old.
