Had my original AP & EAD when I got my 485 cleared in 2008. My AP was not used and has expired. Is it still possible for me to obtain a new AP document? I need to travel to India - also, how much are the filing fees for a new AP or does this come under renewal of AP?

Update yr priority date/485 date so ppl can give you more accurate advice.

You can apply for renewing EAD/AP even after the previous ones have expired. I have done it myself (after 4mnths of expiry), and there were no problems. I am assuming you are on H1/L1 or some other kind of valid visa currently and have not been out of status.

As for the fees, the renewals are not free if you applied during the July 2007 fiasco or before. For those who applied after, the renewal fees for EAD/AP are included in the initial 485 fee.

Hope that helps.
