I asked following questions to the immigration officer while he was looking in to his computer. Also, I saw him typing my I-485 LIN number in the system and later he typed my A# in the system and spent 3/4 minutes looking on the screen.

Q1 - What should I do after one year of I-94 validity?
Ans - Go to the local airport immigration office, they will issue a new I-94 card with another 1 year validity. Personally, I think his answer is incorrect. Once I am in AOS, I-94 date does not matter much.

Q2 - What is going to be my status starting today?
Ans - You are a PAROLED PERMANENT RESIDENT ALIEN of the US.

Q3 - What is PAROLED PERMANENT RESIDENT ALIEN?
Ans - You will be considered PAROLED till you get your Green Card. (You know, I still do not know why it is called PAROLED. My understanding it that it is a conditional entry to the US)

Stamped . Have a good day....

Default AP via Chicago and Washington DC

I travelled in Feb via Chicago. There was no secondary inspection and the immigration Officer validated everything in 3 minutes and I was out within 5 mints and everything was so smooth. Last week I entered via Washington, DC and the IO took about 20 mints since I travelled with 3 other family members and the secondary inspection took about an hour since there were few other people before us. We missed our connecting flight and had to stay overnight. So I would always prefer the airport where they didnít have secondary inspection.

Can guys share the airport names that did not have seconday inspection?

Default My travel

Update on my travel exp. Del to JFK. Was only traveling with one copy of AP as per lawyer was told to leave one with family member in u.s.

Delhi Airport. No problems from Air India staff. They seemed well informed. Immigration officer though at IGI didn't seem knowledgeable and I had to explain. He went on to his supervisor who was asking why I didn't have 2 copies of AP (one for them...why do they need one???). I told her I only got one and was told by lawyer to travel with copies and had that for her if she needed. She didn't and returned my AP to me. Had to go through security again right before boarding aircraft and thankfully that IO didn't question me again though he seemed bit confused and read the whole AP text.

JFK airport. Went to visitor's line. LONG line took an hour. Got to IO. I explained I didn't fill out questions 12 and 13 on landing card since I didn't know answer as traveling first time on AP. he had no prob with that. He flipped through passport and saw H1b visa (expired) and I explained it's expired. He asked "so you applied for GC", me "yes". He was very nice and we chatted a bit about GC delays and he commented that H1bs should get priority on getting GC as country needs more talented people but it's up to the govt to make laws. He explained secondary inspection and after biometrics I went to secondary inspection. I was only person there. Within 7 mins done. No questions asked.

MY AP stamped with "paroled" and valid for one year from today (arrival day, July 2011) whereas my AP actually expires on Feb 2011.....

All I'd needed to show was my passport and AP though I was also carrying other docs like EVL and EAD.

So all went smoothly....

Thanks all for your experiences.
