6 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

we'll be filing our I-751 tomorrow at VSC and i'm thinking of travelling overseas some time next yr (dont know when yet). Given that its looking like it takes about 6-8 mths to process and approve the I-751, does anyone know what i should do if my current greencard expires before or during my travel (3/15/08)? :unsure:

This is not a problem as long as you have the NOA1 letter for the I-751.

You will receive a notice of receipt for the form stating that "Your alien card is extended one year - employment and travel authorized". Keep the receipt with your green card. If by some chance you are not approved within a year you will want to make an InfoPass appointment to go to your Local Office to request an I-551 stamp in your passport. This does happen as it sometimes it takes over a year to be approved. After your NOA extension expires, this is your only evidence of legal status which you are required to have, by law. This happens occasionally, that a case takes over a year, but it's rare. Local Offices will not give an I-551 stamp is you have another type of evidence of status (ie, expired Green Card + extension letter).

My wife had no problem either. We just came back to the States (via Los Angeles) on December 17th, 2007. All you need is your passport, expired PR card, and the extension letter. The officer stamped my wife's passport saying "Admitted LAX..... Class LPR..." (Note LPR = Lawful Permanent Resident).
