"In its revised Form Instructions to Form I-131, USCIS provides the following on page eight of the Table of Changes:
Leaving the United States with an Advance Parole Document is a “departure” from the United States for all purposes under the U.S. immigration laws except that it is not a “departure” solely for purposes of inadmissibility under INA section 212(a)(9)(B) (inadmissibility due to prior unlawful presence), if you are paroled into the United States on the basis of such document. Any other departures without first obtaining Advance Parole may subject you to the inadmissibility provisions of INA 212(a)(9)(B).
How does this language comport with Arrabally and what impact does it have for foreign nationals applying for an advance parole?" - Ann Cun, Dec. 13, 2012.
