AP denial while pending for renewal & travel outside at NSC?

Are they still denying AP while pending for renewal and if you travel outside US on existing unexpired AP?
I have to travel for work regularly and it seems this issue won't let me travel for at least 4-6 months while my AP application is pending. I heard only TSC is denying application but few folks at NSC also got the similar experience.

if they deny AP, are there any implications for pending I-485 approval? in the past, they used to deny i-485 also if you travel without approved AP but this is not the case here.

Unfortunately yes on the AP denial when you travel while your renewal is pending - I have to travel frequently for work as well, but I've been unable to deliver any projects overseas since early December when I filed my renewal, I still have not got any updates as of yet, hopefully I can get my card by the end of this month latest so that I can deliver the project in June.
When will your current AP expire? Can you file your renewal after you come back?
They just have to ground us for approximately 4 to 6 months nowadays due to the slow processing at NSC, very annoyed about this.

Thanks for the reply,

I am on AP from last 6 year (March 2012) and never had problems in traveling frequently (almost every month) and Now I need to go through this career limiting ban on travel due to this stupid rule.My AP is valid till Oct this year so I might apply renewal later and let my attorney apply only EAD renewal now. thanks for insight again. weird time for us

I totally understand your situation as I'm in the same boat, I have to let my peers leading the projects instead, which is jeopardizing my career, but I think this is exactly the purpose of this policy, to discourage immigrants competing with the Americans by limiting our abilities to travel.

I have been travelleing out of country multiple times. I am renewing my EAD/AP in the next 2-3 weeks. Planning to travel again after AP application. I always write a letter in my renewal paperwork. Do you think I should mention about the travel in this letter and also quote the reference to the officer on the following so that he/she won’t deny the application. Or don’t even mention about the travel at all? They can easily find the travel history anyway.

I'm not the officer approving the case, so I don't think my answer guarantee the approval/denial adjudication. However I think it is very risky to do so regardless of whether you have a valid AP or visa status, if you look at the tracker, there were prior denials issued from NSC to applicants in similar situations as you. You should consider renewing your AP after you come back.

I travel every 1-2 months so there is no waiting for 5-6 months with pending AP application. I am applying 5 months ahead now. If it’s denied, have to consider emergent AP options. Otherwise will end up staying until approved (filing second application after the 1st denial)

If you travel outside the country without an approved AP...then your 485 may be denied. But if you have an AP that is not expired but you have applied for a renewal and do travel during the renewal period...your 485 is not affected.

AP denial:
My AP I-131 got denied. They showed the reason that i have travelled with a pending I-131 application. However, they even mentioned the date when i travelled outside USA during that period. But that seems a joke to me !!!!

BECAUSE I DID NOT TRAVEL OUTSIDE USA DURING THAT PERIOD! I DONT EVEN HAVE A VALID VISA TO RE-ENTER! so if i need to travel outside i need to apply for new visa for re-entry! i have submitted my I-94 document with my I485 application package which should show that i did not visited before and i never visited outside USA after that. So i dont know, what to do ? its so frustrating !

If you did not travel, contact your local CBP office and get your I-94 corrected and re apply. if you have a lawyer it will be easy to address this issue with a corrected i-94.

It is true that if you travel outside of USA while your i-131 is pending, your i-131 will be denied. Mine was denied last week as I traveled 4 times outside of USA from Nov2017 to March2018. But before my first travel in Nov2017, I checked with my attorney on impact on i-485 and my attorney confirmed that there is no impact on i-485 due to i-131 denial.
