Reported Advance Parole Document Validity Date Error

FYI – The American Immigration Lawyers Association (AILA) has reported a glitch in the issuance of Advance Parole Documents during the first part of January 2010. The date of issuance on the documents is noted as January 1990 instead of 2010.

USCIS has identified all of the cases in which the wrong date was issued, and will issue revised forms as soon as the software issue is corrected.

***No further action will be necessary to receive a corrected document***

If you need to travel urgently and you have received a document with an invalid issue date, then you may travel using the incorrect document. U.S. Customs & Border Protection (CBP) has been alerted however, you may be questioned about the issuance date. Therefore, please print this explanation to share with CBP if necessary.
