Default Travel on AP via Dubai from Emirates

I just wanted to confirm that it is ok to travel on AP via Dubai from Emirates without H1B stamp. Has anyone done this recently and can you share your experience? Thanks.

In Dubai when you come back you have to show your AP and supporting docs if they ask you to. I came back this July 18th.

I had absolutely no problems, it's all smooth as long as you carry all the supporting docs. I did have a shitty experience at JFK -- there are few morons at the POE you can't do much about.

The AP should be accompanied by employer's letter that proves your support,i .e.It is a simple letter which states that the employer supports your I485.

Please also carry few recent paystubs and copies of all h1,if they are not stamped in the passport. This was asked at POE in IAD(Washington Dulles International Airport).

Default No Issues at all....

I just came back this afternoon (1:30 PM EST) via Dubai...Atlanta..from Chennai.. Just showed AP document and passport.. no questions asked...

Airline just verified AP at Chennai and Dubai to ensure I travel with valid documentation to USA.

sanjay02: Dependents may need to produce Primary Applicant's 485 receipt just incase they ask.. Not sure if it really matters as there is no primary or dependent on AP document mentioned.

Hope this helps!

Default Any issue while Fylying Etihad airlines with AP?

My wife had traveled with Emirates via Dubai last year on AO. No issues at all. This year we are thinking for flying Etihad as they are offering better price. Does anyone have any experience with Etihad airlines with AP?

gimme_GC2006,

I used my AP twice via JFK. Both times sent to secondary. No questions asked, just had to wait an extra 90 minutes due to people in front of me and was given my passport with the I94 back.

so nothing to fear.
