Approval of Application for Travel Document – September 6, 2017

Our client is a Chinese national who has filed an application for adjustment of status with the USCIS.  She is attempting to obtain her green card based on an approved EB-5 petition. However, our client has a need to potentially travel back to her native China.  She understands that leaving the U.S. while her Form I-485 is pending will cause her application to be deemed ‘abandoned’ unless she obtains authorization from the Department of Homeland Security.  We therefore submitted the necessary documents and fees, and with this approval, our client is now free to temporarily return to China for personal or business reasons.
