Work and Travel Made Easier for Adjustment of Status Applicants


U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) has finally made it easier for Adjustment of Status applicants to work and travel!

Starting February 11, 2011, USCIS will begin issuing employment and travel authorization for Adjustment of Status applicants in a single card, doing away with the separate paper approvals formerly issued for travel authorization (otherwise known as Advance Parole). This card is to be issued when an applicant files an Application for Employment Authorization (Form I-765) and an Application for Travel Document (I-131) concurrently with, or after, filing a Form I 485, Application for Adjustment of Status.
