Hi,

I want to go outside of US and return back on December 8, 2010 while my passport expires on June 6, 2011. I will be entering on an advance parole document obtained as an I-485 applicant. As such at point of entry my passport will be expiring in less than 6 months (5 months 28 days). Please let me know if the passport needs to be valid for 6 months at the time of entry or this restriction does not apply to entry based on parole.

Thx

You can enter with passport validity less than 6 months, however your I-94 validity will be given upto that of your passport.

thanks ashkam,

For the benefit of those looking answers to this question, I found the following CBP guidelines on passport validity requirements upon entry (not at time of visa application):

Please let know if this is correct.
