Hi,

I was wondering if there is a limit on the # of travels for each AP approval. I received 2 AP documents valid until May 2010. I have already travelled twice. On my first return the immigration officer kept my AP document at POE (NY) but the 2nd time it was stamped & returned (Washington DC was POE) to me. I was wondering if I could use this document for subsequent re-entries or do I have to apply for a new AP.

Thanks,
Rajeev

Yes, you can use it for multiple entries (The I-512L should say "this is valid for multiple entries" or something to that effect). But, please be prepared to answer the questions (if any) on what is the necessity to travel on an AP 3 times within the year. If it is on business, that is perfectly within the stated rule. But, if it is vacation, you may be questioned (that is dependent on the individual officer).

Please read the above instructions about how it has been mentioned that the AP be used sparingly and not in lieu of a visa.
