I see no issue with using your old AP as long as you return before Dec 10th. In any case your new AP should be approved by then.

I just e-filed mine on July 5th and approved on Aug 3rd. Already have the document in hand.

It is taking a lot longer than the last couple of years. I filed mine end of June, normally TSC would have approved it by now. Unfortunately this time it was transferred to the evil NSC and I am still awaiting an approval.

Default same here ..

same here eb3napa, every time it goes to TSC, infact, for the time I am waiting now (look at my PD) TSC knows me as a regular customer (read it as bakra) for AP and EAD renewal every year for 3 people in the family. this time the freakin system sent our applications to NSC and i am worried now, since I have made my travel bookings for november. Can I go after 90 days and show them the air tickets to expedite or get another AP in the local service center?

This depends on case to case.

I filed for me and my wife in Jan and got them in March. (Paper filing by Lawyer)

One of my cousin filed online and he got Approval AP document in hand in two weeks.
Same with one of my friend who got approved document in hand by 20 days.

Default just some thoughts

May be because they are busy aproving GC's since July, there is a delay in AP aprovals for people who files after July.
I think after September end, there will be flood of aprovals.

So November travel plan guys, dont worry you should get it in september-october for sure.

good luck

boy this is scary. i have my travel plans coming up soon. i efiled mine at NSC on aug 6th..and have travel plans in nov 3rd week and not sure if i have to move my travel dates..

Hi Viji, since yours is more than 90 days, did you open up a SR, or expedite it in anyway? more than 90 days for AP is ridiculous.

No. I didn't since I don't have any travel plans. I will wait for couple of weeks and then I will open a SR. Actually this delay is good for me, I will get few extra months to plan my next year trip.

Same boat here.... I applied for my AP in end of May and still awaiting the approval. I dont have any plans of travelling in the next few months and hence the more delay the better it is for me.
