I granted asylee staus and then I filed I-485 which is still pending for several years.
I got Refugee Travel Document once while my 485 was pending. And I used that for travel with no passport. That travel document was expired and i need to travel outside so i need to apply travel document now.
Here are my questions
1) Is it ok to apply for Advance Parole not Refuge travel Document because my 485 is pending?
2) If i travel with Advance parole, do i need passport? I don't have passport.
If you get a refugee travel document you won't need a passport.
