USCIS Is Reissuing Advance Parole Documents To Correct Date

U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) announced on January 27, 2010, that it is reissuing Advance Parole (Form I-512) documents because some documents were mailed to applicants with an incorrect issue date of January 5, 1990. All affected documents have been identified and USCIS will automatically reissue those documents.

USCIS said all advance parole documents continue to be valid because the expiration dates remain accurate. Therefore it is not necessary for applicants to contact USCIS regarding their pending applications unless their application is outside the normal processing time of 90 days.

Those who need to travel urgently and have received a document with an invalid issue date may travel using the incorrectly dated document, USCIS said. U.S. Customs & Border Protection (CBP) has been alerted, and travelers may be questioned about the issuance date. USCIS advises printing the notice to share with CBP if necessary.
