Can I get I-551 stamp while I-90 in process for lost GC?

Hi -

I lost my permanent GC while traveling last November and filed an I-90 to replace it. Current processing times indicate an 8-month wait time and I have pending travel coming up in May.

I have a photocopy of my lost, unexpired GC.

1) Can I receive a temporary I-551 stamp while my I-90 is being processed? I've done my biometrics but the I-90 application status is still 'under review'.

2) I have an InfoPass appointment for the I-551 stamp coming up in 8 days. Do they usually give the stamp on the spot or how long should I expect it to take? I will be going to the Newark office.

If anyone has gone or can provide some guidance on this situation, that would be much appreciated!

You will get the temporary stamp at your infopass appointment, bring proof that you are traveling to make things even easier.

Yes, it worked out!

I went in for the Infopass appointment, produced a photocopy of my lost GC, my stamped biometrics appointment letter, and airline booking email. I received the stamp on the stop.

I was able to receive a Schengen visa on it, and subsequently travel to Europe and come back. Let me know if you have further questions and I'll try to be responsive.
