  • I-94 and Advance Parole I-131

    I'm departing the U.S to Canada and I'll be back after five days on Advance Parole I-131
    my question do I have to fill out I-94 when I came back on Advance Parole? I entered the U.S 24 years ago on student visa and now my I-485 is pending.

    On form I-94 question # 8 ask city where visa issued and date issued what my answer should be?

    Thanks

      Yes, you do have to fill out an I-94 on your way back into the US (i've been through it). When you come back into the US and go through customs/immigration you will go up to the desk of the immigration officer, show him / her your parole paper, you will then be escorted down a hall and into a little room where you will sit and wait for about 10-15 min, give that person your parole papers, they will stamp it and give it back to you... MAKE SURE you take both papers with you (they are identical), and give them both to the person in the little room. You will also give your white I-94 card to them, they will stamp it and give it back to you, have this filled out before you go into the room. ---- are you not in the US on a visa??

        Hi Jeff
        Do/did immigration officer stamp both advance parole paper and give it back to you or they kept one and gave you the other one? How about if I only take one advance parole paper with me and keep the other one at home just as a back up in case I loss the one with me.

        How about passport did you give them your passport with the advance parole document or not they don't ask for passport since no visa on it?
        In case you gave them your passport, did they stamp it?


        Thank you.

          Depika - They will keep one, and give you back the other....MAKE SURE YOU TAKE BOTH WITH YOU - No one told me to take both pages, so I only took one with me, thinking I'd keep one at home in case i needed it later, safe keeping..etc. DON'T DO THIS. The woman ended up photocoping the page I gave her, but she was NOT happy about doing that. They will make you look and feel like an idiot for not taking both with you. They need a copy and you need a copy.

          Also, yes I gave them my passport to look over with the advance parole document. They WILL stamp the white I-94 card and staple it inside your passport. AND they will stamp your passport. NOTE: the white I-94 card they stamp and the stamp in your passport will only be good for ONE year, regardless what visa you are currently on, even if your last white I-94 card let you in for multi years. ONE YEAR - thats it. Then you have to cross the border again. However you will probably have your green card before the year is up ( I did )

            Jeff, you said the immigration officer will take one advance parole paper and give you the other. My question is when you travel for a second time on advance parole then you only have one advance paper with you, then what you goanna do?
            I talked to a few people and they told the immigration officer only stamp your advance parole and will not take the second advance parole paper! And only one advance parole paper is enough.
            Anybody experience and feedback with Advance Parole.

              What you are going to do for your second, third etc. trips is use that first paper with the stamp, you do not need any more advance parole papers, it is already stamped for a year, ....the purpose of taking those papers into that little room, is to get it stamped. You take it with you on any future trips outside the US.

                I have a question here. When coming back to the US using an advance parole document, in filling out Form I-94, how do I answer question #8? Question #8 asks for the city where my visa was issued and the date it was issued. What should my answer should be? My wife and I came to the US in 1982 (a long, long time ago!) on tourist visas and we overstayed for the longest time. And now we're applying for legalization until Newman (LULAC).
