Thank you for your response and suggestion.  We will apply for the visitors visa very soon.


but I guess NO AP is required to re-enter US from Canada right?

does the mode of travel ( AIR vs. Road/car) make any difference to the rule above? meaning do we need AP  of we travel by Air to Canada?  or EAD is good enough ?


Thanks again for your help in this regard.

What is your current status?

If you don't have an H1, any travel abroad, including to Canada,  would abandon the I-485.

You would need AP or a valid I94 beyond your return date. How come you have EAD and not AP? I thought it was a combined card nowadays? Is that not true? What exactly is your H1 situation if applicable?

This is issue is for my brother and family, who have EAD  and they have been renewing it since 2008.  

They had initially AP for 1 year and after that there was no need and they did not apply.   And with cost savings in mind, did not opt for applying AP every year


Even now we can apply if this is a must for a trip to Canada and/or some urgent travel outside US is required. 


To the other question.  H1-B is long expired.  almost 5 years now. He is on AOS status. for long now.


so what I see is  AP is a must even for vacations to Canada etc.
