Default With a advance parole, can I walk through citizen/permanent resident lane at airport?

Hi folks:
For some reasons, I am worried about being fingerprinted at the border or airport when I come back overseas. I heard that you can walk through citizen/permanent resident at the airport or border when you have an advanced parole. So you won't get fingerprinted. Is this true? Anyone have experiences to tell? Please help, I need to go back to my country to visit my elder parents. Thanks a lot!

You should be worried if you are a criminal.

Actually, the OP could be a permanent resident - he doesn't say. Some permanent residents (like the ones who are going to be out of the US for more than 1 year) need advance parole to re-enter the US. In that case, and advance parole holder would be allowed to go through the permanent resident line.

Somehow I don't think that this is the case here though.

No, that's not AP. That's a reentry permit.

Joe, I stand corrected.

Because a form I-131 is used, I figured the 'end product' would be the same too. However, it turns out that a form I-131 is used to apply for a Travel Document, reentry permit, refugee travel document or advance parole. They just get sent to different places is what makes the difference in what document one gets... geez! lol

Socialism is a Mental Disease: please be nice to others. Whenever we get to radical, we can not guarantee the real freedom and rights of others. You judgement is too quick and lack of credibility.

I am a decent person. But the law is unfairly harsh on foreign nationals even a very small mistake.

Life is about love and affection. Please create a nice spiritual environment for you and others.

thanks for the reply. I am on the status of I-485 pending with AP at hands. Do you think I will be allowed to walk through Citizen/PR Lane at the airport.
Please don't look down on me. I am very decent peson who made a very small mistake in the past. I just want to play safe. It may not be any problem.

Thanks!

Somebody seems to have got up out of bed the wrong side this morning.

Anyway,

I do not like the idea of somebody having my prints either, but too late, they have them for AP and AoS so another set makes no difference.

Not sure if all PoE's fingerprint yet, when I last came in they had all the equipment but were not using it, perhaps it is being rolled out.

Ben, what if it didn't matter? Have you used your AP before? I believe you'll find yourself in Secondary Inspection while they process the parole regardless of which entry line you try to use.
If you're splitting hairs, you will find that your status after admission on AP is not the same as the status you have now. In fact, it's a lot more tenuous. I've read it described as this:
When admitted with AP, your legal body is still standing outside the US; you are not technically 'admitted'. If you are having a legal problem, this might be worth bringing up with your lawyer.

Also, I'll presume that you have not accumulated more than 180 days out of status? That would be a huge warning to NOT use AP at all.

When you will enter US , at POE (Port of entry) following will happen :

Situation # 1 --- If you walk towards PR line

The officer will ask for your passport and will try to find GC stamp in your passport, (because your AOS is pending there is no stamp) after looking at passport he/she will ask if you have a Green Card (as a physical card) if you say no then he/she will ask your A # , after getting the Alien number the officer will know that your AOS is pending and will send you to officers handling regular visitors and will be fingerprinted. (if you do not have A# then the officer will assume you are not PR and will do the same)

Situation # 2 --- If you walk towards USC line

The officer will ask for your passport hoping to see a blue passport (USPP) and because you dont have one he/she will send you to officers handling regular visitors and you will be fingerprinted.

------
in both cases remember, you will make them suspicious about you that why you are trying to pass the POE through these lines?

most ppl fear when their AOS is pending because they think they will not be allowed entry, the maximum can happen (if you are not engaged in any criminal activity) they will ask questions about the basis of your case (eg. if aos is due to marriage, they will ask aobut your wife etc... )

hope this helps

If you are travelling with a US citizen such as your wife/husband then you stay with them.
If you are alone then you will have to go through the visitor channel.

The US Citizen/LPR lanes are for people that require little documentation. It helps move the lanes faster.

The AP requires some processing and should be brought through the other lanes.
