parent went back to home country green card pending

13 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

HI TO all Vjers,

my parent came to the US about 2 months ago.There is some emergencies that she needs to go back to our home country even without getting the green card yet...she came to the US as immigrant.IR-1... we thought that the green card will be sent to her address in the US in less than 30 days from her arrival. but we are wrong. its been past 30 days..No green card still.the thing is SHe wants to go back to the US...but she cant go back unless she has the green card right? by the way we inquire bout her case and it says in the recording that its still pending...

THe stamp in her passport ..says..visa will expire on march...can she go back to the US..just with that? and no green card?

when they say its pending how long usually it will take them to process the case.

She is only allowed to stay outside the US for six months right?longer than that..she might not be accepted even if she has green card?

please enlighten me..she really worries alot about her case.and so are we.

thank you for the time

If she came to the US on an IR5 visa then she should have a I-551 stamp (temp Greencard) in her passport.... it will have a valid to date on it... she will be able to enter the US using just her passport with the stamp right up to the day it expires.... although she may want to return before then... you do not say what date it said in her passport for the expiry....

Sorry there is a family emergancey that she has had to deal with...

lol some people get upset when no one answers their post, thinking others are ignoring them, I don't think anyone cares how much they can post in matters of quantity.

Sheena - unfortunately I don't have an answer for you either :( but I hope someone is able to provide you with a helpful answer!

sheena, she will be fine as long as she re-enters the US before March 5th 2008..... also let her know she can go through the USC/Residents line at the POE so that will be a bit quicker for her....

If for any reason she can not return before the I-551 expires she will need to contact the nearest US embassy and speak to them, they can arrange a re-entry stamp if it is needed.... she will not loose her LPR status unless she is outside for more than 12 months or is deemed to have moved permenantly....

YOu take care
