When To Request Advance Parole

If you are an undocumented immigrant in the United States, you may have advance parole eligibility. This means that you can request permission to leave the country and return, without having to obtain a visa first. Advance parole is typically granted for humanitarian reasons, such as visiting a sick relative or attending a funeral. You may also be granted advance parole if you need to travel for business purposes.

To be eligible for advance parole, you must have been living in the United States continuously for at least one year. You must also have a pending application for asylum or another form of relief from removal. If you do not have an active application, you may still be eligible if you can show that advance parole is necessary for “urgent humanitarian reasons” or is in the “public interest.”

If you are granted advance parole, you will be given a document called an “Advance Parole Document.” This document allows you to re-enter the United States without a visa. It is important to note that advance parole does not guarantee entry into the United States. You may still be subject to inspection by Customs and Border Protection (CBP) upon your return.

If you are considering traveling outside the United States while your immigration case is pending, it is important to speak with an experienced Utah immigration lawyer first. An attorney can help you determine if you are eligible for advance parole and can assist with the application process.
