Hi All,

I apologize if this has been discussed and answered before. Once the conditions are removed and a 10 year green card has been issued, is a U.S. Passport needed to travel out of the U.S. and back in again?

I am confused about this because I am thinking the U.S. Passports are only for U.S. Citizens.

Any valid GC, whether it be a 2 year or a 10 year, will allow you to re-enter the U.S. You do not need a passport for this.

You will still need the passport from the country you are a citizen of, to travel abroad, and whatever visas that are required for the country you wish to visit, considering the country of your citizenship.

You will need your permanent resident card to re-enter the USA. That is basically all you need to re-enter the U.S.A.

You cannot apply for citizenship and a U.S. Passport until you meet the time requirements for applying for Citizenship. This is 3 years if you acquired your permanent resident status by marriage to a U.S. Citizen-and are still married to that Citizen, or 5 years, if you acquired permanent residency by other means.

No. Your GC is your "passport" to enter this country. You would need your country's passport to enter there. For example, I have my GC which I will use to enter this country if I were to visit my mom in Germany. However, I need my German passport to enter Germany.
