Greencard issued while out of country

4 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

My stepdaughter arrived on a K-2 visa and we have submitted all the papers for AOS, EAD, and AP. My stepdaughter wants to return to Ukraine for the summer after we receive her AP. What happens if the Greencard is issued while she is away? Does her AP become invalid or can she still re-enter on it?

I know in a perfect world she would need to go to the embassy to receive her card, but her return date and the estimated date that the GC is approved is almost the same date.

Thanks in Advance,

She can still use the AP - when asked why no GC all she has to say is that it hasn't arrived when she left.

THis happened to my wife. Her GC was delayed, and actually got here while she was in Ukraine. I brought the GC to her when I joined the relatives for a couple of weeks, so she had both on return. She was told at passport control that she could re-enter with the AP had she not already had the GC, but the AP was technically no good once she had the GC.
