Regarding Advance Parole, is it true that one cannot get this if one wants to visit family and friends or go on vacation?


No, that is not true! There was a time, many years ago, when AP was limited to emergency situations. You had to show life-and-death urgency. This eased over time and, now, it is routinely granted for I-485 applicants if they just ask. There are other types of parole that are not just routinely handed out. (28.Apr.2014)
