If I Have an Application Pending with USCIS, Can I Travel Outside of the U.S.?

When you are in limbo with U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services, you may be concerned about any limitations you may be facing. Travelling is particularly restricted.  Our Phoenix immigration lawyers of Kanu & Associates, P.C. believe it is best you remain as cautious as possible, as you don’t want the smallest move to throw off your application process.

When it comes to a pending application with USCIS, the question of whether you can travel can be answered quite simply: it depends. It matters which stage of the application process you are in, as well as which application you are pending with. However, our legal team believes one thing above all: when possible, stay home.

The USCIS makes exceptions for certain travel purposes, such as emergencies. In this case, you will need to fill out Application for Travel Documents, if your particular situation allows. If you leave the United States without following proper protocol, you will essentially be abandoning your application, which will set you back to zero. As with any move you make, it is important you consult with your trusted Phoenix immigration lawyer first.
