Documents For Filing Advance Parole

Separate application forms, fees and sets of documents are required for each applicant (including yourself, each of your family members) who needs to travel.
  • Application fee must be sent with the application.
    There is no biometric fee.

    Fee details

    If you filed Form I-485 on or after July 30, 2007, and you paid the required fees for the same, you don't have to pay additional fees for Advance Parole, irrespective of whether you are concurrently filing I-131 with I-485 or later.

  • Form I-131, Application For Travel Document

    Sample I131

  • Photos
    If you are in U.S., submit 2 identical photographs.

    If you are outside the U.S., don't submit photographs. U.S. embassy/consulate or DHS office abroad will ask for photographs before issuing the parole document.

    If the person filing the application is in the U.S., but the person for whom the advance parole is being filed is outside the U.S., submit 2 identical photographs

  • Copy of an official photo identity document that shows your name, photo and date of birth. e.g., a government issued valid driver's license, identity page of passport, permanent resident card or any other official identity document.

    Form I-94 can't be used as a photo identity document.

  • If you are filing Form I-131 based on a pending I-485, include a copy of the I-797C Notice of Action, showing that your I-485 was accepted.

  • If you are in the U.S.,
    1. A copy of any USCIS issued document indicating your present status in the US; and

    2. An explanation or other evidence showing the circumstances that warrant issuance of an advance parole document (not required in next 2 circumstances described below); or

    3. If you have already filed for an adjustment of status (I-485), a copy of I-797 Notice of Action, receipt of filing I-485.

    4. If applicable, a copy of the I-140 receipt notice and copy of the I-140 approval notice.

    5. If you are traveling to Canada to apply for an immigrant visa, a copy of the U.S. consular appointment letter

    6. Copy of your marriage certificate, if you are applying for advance parole based on pending green card petition of your spouse.

    7. Copy of the child's birth certificate if applying for advance parole for a child based on pending green card petition of the primary applicant.

    8. If you are the surviving spouse of a U.S. citizen who died before the secondary anniversay of your marriage, or you are the qualified child of a surviving spouse, and you have been granted a deferred action (or included in your parent's deferred action grant letter), include a copy of the order, notice, or document placing you in deferred action. If you are a qualified child, you must submit a separate application.

  • Cover letter, if you are applying for Advance Parole not along with other application such as I-485.

If you require explanation for getting advance parole (from the circumstances described below), even family visits or vacation are considered acceptable reasons to leave the U.S. You can just write your name and A number (if any) at the top of a blank paper and write something like "I qualify for Advance Parole because I am awaiting my adjustment of status interview. I would like to travel to my native country to visit my parents, whom I haven't seen in years".

However, if you are traveling because of an emergency, explaining the crisis may help speed up the application. e.g., in case of a family medical emergency, provide a letter from your family member's doctor explaining your family member's condition and the need for your visit.
