Travel Outside Of The US While EAD/AP Extension Is Pending.

Recommended Posts


I currently have an approved EAD/AP which is valid through 01/05/022. I've initiated the renewal of my EAD/AP in August 2021, but haven't received the approval yet. So, both EAD and AP are pending approval as of now.

I'm planning to travel outside of the US during the month of December, 2021 and return a couple of weeks before the EAD/AP expires in Jan 2022. I have a valid H1-B that I'm planning to use for my re-entry into the states. So, I won't be using my current AP document which is valid until Jan 2022. Does anyone know by chance if my inflight AP extension application will be abandoned by the USCIS if it's not approved before my travel?


Any help on this will be much appreciated!


Thank you and I looked forward to hearing on this.


Best regards,

KV Singh.
