Any idea on how long advance parole is taking for renewals at Nebraska Service Center?

Mine took just over six months, but I applied back in June (it was a renewal). Hopefully it only took so long because there was a glut of applicants. However, in the Age of Trump, be prepared to wait. Sorry, I wish I had better news for you, but you have to temper expectations.

The first time around, in 2016, it took half that time.

Have seen some cases taking 3 months. Mine at TSC (new) took 6+ months :-(.
As said above, hope for the best but prepare for the worst

Worst come worst we can get an appointment and ask for an emergency AP right? What if air tickets are booked 6 months down the line and if AP still doesn't come after 4 months? Is that whats called infopass appointment at USCIS office?

I’m pretty sure that having already purchased plane tickets does not constitute an emergency. Otherwise, everyone who hadn’t received their AP, and wanted to travel, would just buy the ticket then show up at the field office demanding an emergency AP. It’s the same thing when you apply for a visa at the consulate. They specifically tell you not to make any travel arrangements before getting the visa.

An emergency is something out of your control. Choosing whether or not to buy a plane ticket before AP approval is a risk you decide to take, and completely under your control.

I agree to it. Booking a ticket isn’t emergency.

I agree and I also agree times are bad but is there any choice especially waiting till the last moment if you want to travel in summer where as it is tickets are so expensive? Just thinking of it makes me sad and angry!

I saw someone showed less than 3 months as well. I need to travel for my work, it would be ridiculous if i have to wait for half a year to get my renewed travel doc, even the I140 processing cutoff date is almost approaching my receipt date (i filed concurrently), so i hope either the greencard will come soon or the travel doc won't take too long.

dont book tickets before you have the document. I paid $1600 to rebook the tickets because we didnt get AP in time. It took about 155 days for us to get EAD/AP cards. Applied July 21 , cards received dec 27 2017.

I do not understand why AP renewal takes life long, this is the most ridiculous thing I have seen ever in my life, with that policy saying you can not travel with pending application, this basically ground ppl in the states, I do not understand this at all. From security perspective, it does not help reducing any risks......
Just checked the processing time on the website, they updated on 2/15, I-131 approval only progressed to those who submitted on or before September 16, 2017, with almost 5 months’ lag, honestly whoever oversees this service center should be questioned.

I was surprised by it too .. but it’s the new normal. It’s for everyone, my assumption they want to discourage DACA kids.

Hi all,

I understood EAD/AP cards come together. My case was concurrently filed for I765, I140,I485 and I131 under EB1C in mid Oct. Per USCIS website currently USCIS is processing Oct 1 EAD and Sept 16 AP.
What processing timeline I should consider for my EAD/AP card arrival ... is it EAD (Oct 1st) or AP (Sept 16) ?

to destinationus:

we asked them the same question. After being on wait on call for several hours, The call center guy called his boss. The Boss said if you applied for combo then it will be AOS because it is taking more time. He provided some weird logic (which is probably true) it seems they go to different teams if it is just EAD vs combo and they dont talk to each other. Also said they are moving to a cloud system which is causing these delays.

Why helping people if I can make their life hell? That's probably their mindset under the new administration. You are a good employee if you slow down, deny more, etc, etc.

I recently filed for an extension on my current EAD/AP (exp in july). I was originally given a 2 year EAD/AP but never did fingerprints for it (only for I485). It is my understanding that is now policy to do fingerprints for EAD/AP...is this correct? Do they make you do fingerprints even though this is a renewal? Please advise

I got EAD/AP renewed recently (I got the card two weeks ago), I was not asked for fingerprints. Infact when I applied for the first time, I got EAD/AP card on my hand even before my biometrics.

to leukemia:

Yes! that is what happened to us too. EAD/AP got approved before we got a biometrics notice for the I485.
I wasnt sure if for the renewal I would have to do fingerprints. I seem to have read conflicting information.
How long did it take you to get a renewal? We applied to Nebraska a month ago

Congrats! Could you please let me know when did you file your renewal? I filed on December 5, 2017 with NSC and has not heard anything yet, but I need to go to Europe for a project on June 8th, kinda want to make sure I can have my card before mid May, not sure if it will be a problem

My Story:
Applied for EAD/AP renewal in July last year at TSC for self and spouse.
Only EAD got approved and AP was denied since I traveled out of country while renewal was pending.

Re-applied for AP only on Dec 13th 2017, got approval only for spouse.
Self AP was denied indicating travel while renewal pending with wrong travel history in I-94.
How to address getting he travel history corrected? Any thoughts??
I understand there is no point filing MTR for AP rejection.
