How to use Advanced Parole document?

Asked over 1 year ago - Lynnwood, WA

Greetings. I have advanced parole and will be using it for the first time next month.

They sent me two identical copies. Can I leave one copy at home for safekeeping? Will I have trouble at the port of entry when I come back with only one copy?

Thank you.

    Lawyer agrees

    Answered . You will need both copies. For safety, I agree with my colleagues, you should make a black and white photocopy and leave it at home, in case the document is lost or stolen, so you have a record of it. Never make color copies of government documents. You don't want any allegation that you tried to fraudulently reproduce it. Make black and white copies.
