Let me ask you a question. You said two copies, why? Do they take one when you arrive to the US. How many entries youa re allowed to make on AP?

Thank you!

One of my I-131 was also taken when I traveled.

I am assuming that this is only first time.

Next time they will just give me a stamp.

Anyway,whenever you want,you will travel with 131.

Have a nice trip!

What is a valid reason to get an AP? I've been here for a year, had an AOS and I miss my family will that be a good reason to apply for AP? Thanks in advance for you inputs on this.

Please be very aware that having the I-131 does not guarantee that you will be admitted to the US when you return. Highly recommend that you only leave the country for an emergency, not just for a routine visit.

Makes much more sense to wait until you have the green card in hand. Have seen it happen when the person is not permitted back into the US. Take a close look at the visa and it states just that. Do not chance not being able to re-enter.

How long will you be away? Is it limited or does applicants for AP decide when they want to comeback? Pls do shed some light to this when you come back. What was the reason you made to ask for AP? Goodluck!

Well, I am going for two weeks. I dont know for how long one can be gone. But if your employer sponsors you green card and you get EAD, I dont think you can earn longer vacation within the first year. I can only take 2 weeks vacation.

I dont have any specific reason. Just want to see my family.

I just submit my request for a two weeks' of vacation. If it is approved by the nursing office, I will be using my AP in May as well. Good luck to everyone!

Glad to hear that you had a good time. But again, it is 100% up to the person that is in immigration when you return and no one has any control over that.

I have seen people questioned for more than three hours before being allowed in, and others have just gotten waived thru. There is no rhyme or reason about it, but just what happens. And it also states so directly on the visa. And they mean it.
