Travelling after Green Card Expires (Waiting for renewal)

Hi all,

I have a question, which is probably just a "yes" or "no" answer for me.

I got married on a K1 visa in June of 2007

I received my 2-year green card in October 2007. Expiry date: 10/22/09.

I instigated the I-751 process in early August 2009 and recied a I-797C, Notice Of Action letter telling me that my "conditional resident status is extended for a perior of one year. During the one-year extenstion you are authorized employment and travel."

So, here's the question:

I plan to fly to Ireland (to visit family) in Christmas from Chicago O'Hare airport. Last year when I flew, at the check in process I had to present both my passport and greencard (and the barcodes of both were swiped through a reader). How does this check in process get affected when my green card has expired (waiting renewal) - is it a matter of just presenting the old green card and the I-797C NOA letter - will that be enough? Or is there anything else which I have to do, to ensure my flight goes smoothly.

My apologies if this has been asked before - I understand that I can still travel - I just want to be prepared for how the check-in part is going to go.

Any help/advice is musch appreciated,

You're right it is a Yes/No answer and the answer is "Yes" - everything is the same except you will need your NOA1/I-797 notice. :thumbs:
