Thought I would throw this out there regarding a cruise we've got planned for Aug 2008. We're going to the Mediterrenean (Italy, Greece, Turkey) and we're assuming we won't have our 10 yr GC by then. If that's the case and we're traveling with the expired GC and the 1 yr extension NOA leltter and a Mexican passport will we need to get visas to enter any or all of the countries we'll be visiting? I'm assuming these countries won't accept an expired GC so if traveling on a Mexican passort...how does this work? Does any one out there have personal experience they can share?

Thanks in advance for any information.

The extension letter extends the validity of the green card for a year, so you can travel with it with little to no problems. Some people take the added precaution of going and getting the I-551 stamp in their passport.

"If that's the case and we're traveling with the expired GC and the 1 yr extension NOA leltter and a Mexican passport will we need to get visas to enter any or all of the countries we'll be visiting?"

I may be wrong but I believe the GC, expired or not, doesn't have anything to do with you having to get visas to visit certain countries. Your being a resident of the US doesn't affect what visas you'll need to visit another country as you are still a citizen on Mexico.

Hamburgapples is correct. Your Green Card is for US entry only. You will need to ask your travel agent or the cruise customer service for the answer. When we went on our cruise for the first time, we had the same questions. The cruise company took care of everything including temporary entry to the countries we visited. As long as you have sufficient identification, you will be ok. Read more about this on your cruise's website or call them and ask.

Good luck!
