Advance Parole

Foreign individuals applying for Advance Parole on the basis of a pending application for adjustment of status, and other circumstances, must be approved for advance parole prior to leaving the United States in order to avoid automatic termination of their pending application for adjustment. This does not apply to foreign individuals who have applied to adjust to permanent resident status and who maintain H-1B (Specialty Worker) or L-1 (Intracompany Transferee) status, or their dependents, who have applied to adjust to permanent resident status and who have valid H-1B or L status and valid visas, V nonimmigrants who have a valid V nonimmigrant visa, are in valid V nonimmigrant status and have or obtain a valid V nonimmigrant visa before applying for readmission to the US, and K-3/4 nonimmigrants who have applied to adjust to permanent resident status and who have a valid K-3/4 nonimmigrant visa, are in valid K-3/4 nonimmigrant status and have or obtain a valid K-3/4 nonimmigrant visa before applying for readmission to the US.

Please note that Advance Parole does not guarantee admission into the U.S. Foreign individuals with Advance Parole are still subject to the immigration inspections process at the port of entry.
