USA Advance Parole
« on: April 23, 2007, 09:58:54 PM »
I don't quite understand under what conditions the USA will grant Advance Parole to a K-1 spouse.  Does it have to be some major reason or is just wanting to visit mom and dad back in the old country a sufficient reason?

Visiting family is sufficient reason.

Yup, that's about what we listed on my wife's application IIRC.

So how long does AP take, from the time you apply until you get it?
And I think it's going to be a long, long time...

Ours took two days. We made a app with infopass  in Fairfax Va and got it the next day .Two passport photos, filled out paperwork with marriage lic, Passport with Visa and paid $ 180.00 each for wife and daughter. If you go through the formal channels you will wait 45 to 60 days for it. They were very nice and helpful. The form is good for one year with multi entries in to the US. It is a very good service that they provide and well worth every penny that you spend for that service..

Hi Rocketman,
I see its been a while since you posted, I hope you found success with the travel and the travel document I-131.  If also applying for her citizenship, I'd try to be sure she isn't out of the country around citizenship interview time. 
Yeah, the Infopass can really be a boon, even if it costs a little.
Hey, marriage agencies can't help it if anybody is a bridge troll.

Thanks, Whitey_mo, it all worked out.  She flew to Ukraine last week, and I'll be joining her there next week.  We appreciate your insights and good wishes.

FYI, in an emergency, she can just go.  Then immediately, you the USC file an infopass appointment, take all the needed documentation along with documentation to support the emergency, fill out the forms, pay the money and it will be granted.  There is then a process to get the document to the nearest consular station for her to pick up to use to get back into the USA.
