Practice Note
Expediting Advance Paroles for Applications Filed at NBC

On February 8, 2005, AILA Infonet published an email sent by the National Benefit Center (NBC) to the AILA NBC Liaison. 

In this email, NBC pointed out that if an applicant has an emergent need to travel and has already filed an I-131 Application for Advance Parole with the NBC, the applicant or his/her attorney should contact the local district office. The district office will consider the merits of the request and channel those requests that they determine to warrant expedited handling to designated points of contact at the NBC via an internal e-mail address. The attorney could also contact the [AILA NBC liaison] to request an expedite of an I-131 already pending with the NBC. However, NBC asks the applicants to keep in mind that the applicant will need to provide evidence of the emergent situation in order for the request to be considered.

However, if an applicant has not yet filed an I-131 and needs an expedited Advance Parole Document, the I-131 may be submitted in person, with fee, for adjudication at the local Field Office. However, it is very important for our readers to remember that expedited processing is done at the discretion of the district office, based upon the evidence provided by the applicant of the emergent situation.  Therefore, the nature of the emergency, and preparation and presentation of the evidence are the key to have the advance parole expedited.
