Travelling with pending asylum
Can I travel to Canada for a few day?
I have an asylum pending now for almost 3 years
There is no explicit prohibition to travel abroad while your asylum application is pending. However, if you do travel, you may be deemed to have abandoned your asylum application and therefore have problems at the time of admission. As a result, you may not be able to reenter the US.
If you want to avoid problems during admission, you have to apply for advance parole. But this takes time and you will have to plan accordingly.
To sum, avoid leaving the US before your asylum application is approved. If you absolutely have to travel, apply for advance parole.
