Default How long is AP renewal taking these days?

I am planning to visit India during the first week of November'09. My attorney just sent the application over to TSC.

Would like to know the processing times these days? Do I have to use an infopass to expedite it?

Any help is greatly appreciated.

I applied on 8th of August and got the approval on 24th, so approx. 2 weeks. I had applied by paper processing to TSC. But I guess it was faster than normal for me...

Default Processing times for TSC advance parole

Processing times for TSC advance parole show up as April 01, 2009 (5 months).. Glad to know you are getting it so soon. Hope the processing times are outdated and what you are getting is the normal trend.

kviswanathan is infamous around these parts
Default Interesting

That is good to know. My lawyer applied for my wife & me on July 6th and i am still waiting to receive the AP approval. It went to Texas.

Not concerned yet but i live in stupid state (FL) which requires that you renew your license every year so will panic as the day of my license expiry comes closer.

Thumbs up

Applied by submitting paper application to the TSC. Approval notice received in 2 weeks and the actual AP documents were mailed after a week or so. So 3-4 weeks at most, is what I'd say.

Paraphrase,
I hope you got your AP for your November travel. Applied AP for Primary and Dependant on Aug 10th, Dependant received AP within 20 days, Primary still waiting. Tried Expediting, went for Infopass, contacted Congressman's office....nothing yet. Online system says 'Case received and pending' but IO at Infopass and COngressman say 'Approved and awaiting document printing'. I have to travel in 2 weeks and nothing yet.
