Yes. An Application for Travel Document (form I-131) is filed in the United States by the foreign spouse of a U.S. citizen with the United States Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) along with the permanent residence application to request issuance of an Advanced Parole Document to allow the foreign spouse to depart and re-enter the United States while the permanent residence application is pending.
