Hallo my fellow VJ-ers.

My AOS has been approved and has been sent off for printing, but I have not yet received the GC. Can I apply for a reentry permit now, or should I wait until I have received the GC?

Thanks

I don't think you have to wait for the GC in hand.

The instructions say you have to send one of the following when you apply for reentry permit:

1) A copy of the front and back of your Form I-551; or

2) If you have not received your Form I-551, a copy of the biographic page(s) of your passport and a copy of the visa page showing your initial admission as a permanent resident, or other evidence that you are a permanent resident; or

3) A copy of the Form I-797, Notice of Action, approval notice of an application for replacement of your Form I-551 or temporary evidence of permanent resident status.

Good luck!

Are reentry permit is needed when a permanent resident intends to leave the USA for 1 year or longer (2 years max). You are not even a resident yet, but you are ready to leave for such a long time right away?

If so, you are jeopardizing your residency right from the start.


There is no room in this country for hyphenated Americanism. When I refer to hyphenated Americans, I do not refer to naturalized Americans. Some of the very best Americans I have ever known were naturalized Americans, Americans born abroad. But a hyphenated American is not an American at all . . . . The one absolutely certain way of bringing this nation to ruin, of preventing all possibility of its continuing to be a nation at all, would be to permit it to become a tangle of squabbling nationalities, an intricate knot of German-Americans, Irish-Americans, English-Americans, French-Americans, Scandinavian-Americans or Italian-Americans, each preserving its separate nationality, each at heart feeling more sympathy with Europeans of that nationality, than with the other citizens of the American Republic . . . . There is no such thing as a hyphenated American who is a good American. The only man who is a good American is the man who is an American and nothing else.

Thanks all. I'll gather one of those documents.

I'm not moving by choice. My husband works for a large US corporation with projects abroad and unfortunately we are being moved for his work. No choice.
