Lost extension letter and need to travel.....

6 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

I've put my NOA1 or whichever letter it is that let's me travel and extends my greencard in a really safe place, so safe I can't remember where I put it and I'm meant to be going back to England in a month on holiday. I've been trying to call and get hold of someone but can't get past the stupid recorded messages. Does anyone know if I can get a copy and how to actually talk to a person (I know, the holy grail of USCIS!)

I do have a scanned copy of it but I have a feeling that's not going to be good enough for my friends at the airport!

Would really appreciate any advice.

Thanks

The USCIS will be able to send you another NOA1 but it takes more than 30 days and I don't think you'll receive it on time. You still need to keep trying to reach a live rep at least to find out if your copy will be good enough to show at POE when you get back to the US.

Take a copy of your NOA to your local office and ask for a stamp in your passport. They will probably take your expired green card.

Travel with your stamped passport, a copy of your NOA and a copy of your expired green card.
