USCIS Is Now Denying Pending Forms I-131 for Abandonment Due to International Travel

In the past, U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) has approved advance parole renewal applications for individuals who travel abroad during the pendency of the application with a valid Advance Parole document or a valid H, K, L, or V visa.  However, we have learned that the USCIS is now denying Form I-131 advance parole applications for abandonment in instances where the applicant has traveled abroad during the pendency of the application. The USCIS has confirmed that travelling internationally while an application for advance parole is pending will now result in the denial of that application, notwithstanding prior practice to the contrary.
