Wife is traveling internationally soon, and would like the I-551 stamp in her passport.

Her biometrics appointment is 2/20.

At her biometrics appointment, can she request I-551 stamp at the same time, or does she need to schedule a separate Infopass appointment for 2/20 for the I-551 stamp?

Hi, She cannot get an I-551 stamp in her passport for removing of condition I 751, you only get that when you adjust status, once, for I751, you only get an extention letter which will be mailed to you soon, then after that you either get an interview date or an approval for her 10 yr green card, what you can do at the biometrics appointment is explain that she is travelling and need a fast extention letter,they might be able to issue one quickly. so before she travel, make sure she gets her extention letter,if not she might not be able to get back into the country, be careful not to travel without the extention letter.if not immigration at the port of entry might bare her from entry,you will get it the mail soon,be patient

YMMV

May as well try as I've never seen anyone say they did so. Doubt it and she'll probably have to make a separate Info pass to do so. LOTS of peeps doing the I-751 have got the stamp. Some just worried they'd lose the extension letter or it wouldn't be recoginized as much as a stamp in the PP.

She has received her extension letter already, but as you mentioned, her concern is that when she is departing Vietnam, the letter wouldn't be recognized as much as the stamp in her passport. She isn't as much concerned about entering the US with just the extension letter, as she is about going through customs in Vietnam when leaving.

yea, my wife feels the same way. We don't have any concerns about getting back in US with the extension letter, but we do have worry about the 'extension letter' being recoginized by her home country (cuba). we are afraid they will say that GC is 'expired' so can't let you go on plane.... the letter will appear weird to non - US eyes. They will probably laugh at such a flimsy document.

this is not true...

some people never receive the letter.. those people can make an info-pass appointment with their local USCIS office .. you can find your local office here...

you can make an info-pass appointment here..

also some people don't get their 10 year card until well after the extension letter expires.. those people can also request for a I-551 tamp in their passport

she would need to make an appointment at your local office, as far as i was told by uscis, the biometric center is not the same place you get the stamp. I also asked that at my biometrics in NC, and they told me it was a separate building, which you need an appointment for... they seem to get that question alot too b/c the ucis had hand out informing people of that at the front desk and that office had info on infopass and directions to the other place.

also, she needs to show some reason why she needs it, they won't issue it unless her card is almost expired, like in a week or so... they told me i could not get one unless me letter did not come in.
