I read somewhere that an AP approved when the person is out of Country is not Valid. Is it true? Please suggest
Thanks,
It is ok if you are out of the country when the AP is approved. You have to be in the country when application.

Any updates from those who posted earlier on this thread? I e-filed for AP jointly with EAD to TSC but only received EAD approval. Still waiting on AP and have travel plans coming up - so worried and trying to figure out best course of action, based on earlier recommendations on this thread.

My advise to you would be to leave no stone un-turned. If you're approaching the 90 day period and the online status is still in initial review it's time to take an info-pass appointment and meet up with the officer with your travel tickets.

It also does not hurt to Fax your documents along with your tickets and a letter indicating your concern and anxiety for the approaching travel plan (to the center where you applied for your AP). If you still don't see any progress contact your local congressman (they are usually very helpful) and / or the Ombudsman (e-mail address given on USCIS website).

I know it may feel overwhelming to do all this, but depending on the urgency of your travel plan these are your available options. Collectively these steps do help.

Good Luck!

The October 2012 Visa Bulletin is truly devastating! Instead of receiving the PR card, now I have to apply for my EAD renewal!!
Can anyone tell if I can travel while my EAD is filed for renewal? I do have a valid AP and my husband is the Primary applicant - H1B visa holder.

Sorry to hear the turn of events in your case, Pria - definitely understand your disappointment! If you do have a valid visa (like a H4-H1), you do not even need an AP to reenter. You can use the visa itself for that.

On the other hand, if you do not have a valid visa, you actually need a valid EAD to continue to maintain status within the USA, even if you are not considering travel. The good news is, having recently applied for both EAD and AP and kept track of approval times, I can tell you that EAD is getting approved as early 40-45 days from date of application (it did take me longer for the AP, but I received that within 75 days as well). Good Luck!

Can anyone tell if I can travel while my EAD is filed for renewal?

I'm not sure if the EAD has anything to do with the travel as we require AP and not EAD for travel. I'm not sure if the immigration can ask for EAD along with the AP at the time of reentry into USA.

I remember one occasion where my wife traveled to India on AP when her EAD is applied for renewal. She had no issues at the port of entry.
