vacation travel on conditional green card

13 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

hello

My wife has a conditional green card (2 year w exp date June 2011). I am thinking she should be able to travel to Colombia and return w no issues. The plan is to visit for 2 weeks first part of Feb. I don't need her to get any stamps or file return forms do I???

fyi - I will not file removal of conditional status until March/April time frame.

Thanks in advance for any help

Not a problem at all.

A green-card is a GREEN-CARD, period. Makes no diff if is a conditional one or not.

If passport has maiden name in it, then book airline tickets in maiden name! International travel requires tickets and passport to match.

she should apply for advance parole before living the country. otherwise, the immigration will look at it as Abandonment of her greencard. hence, she will be deny entry back to the US. do not do the same mistake as others did.!

WRONG!!! WRONG!!! WRONG!!! WRONG!!! :protest:

AP is only needed while waiting for adjustment of status.

The Post states that they HAVE a green-card.

Only trips out of the USA longer than 1 year without a travel doc would be considered to abandon LPR status. Not a 2 week trip.

Visa Journey is the best. Wow thanks to all for such a quick response. Yes, my wife has had her conditional green card for 18 months. Sorry to confuse about status adj. Only mentioned the process of "conditional removal" so people realized I would be back in country in event I had interview to lift the "conditional" status from the green card.

The info on passport is super helpful. Would have never thought of that!! Thanks!

My wife kept her passport w maiden name, although she has a stamp from her consulate that shows she is married.

Thanks again to each of you for your help w my question.

One more note, even after you file I-751 and are waiting for removal of conditions, you do not need AP to travel, the I-751 receipt acts as a 1 year green-card and serves for re-entries from trips abroad.

This answer is not even close to correct. She can travel with a 2 year contional Green Card. without any problem to Colombia. You have to be real careful what you take as fact on this board, People mean well but sometimes posters just guess like it apeears happened here.

Come on man!! The immigration process is stressful all by it's self so maybe we should refrain from freaking people out unnecessarily by saying things we have no clue about.

I am totally sorry.my bad.. i am so sorry.. i admit it. it was an honest mistake.. i do not mean to misled him.. so sorry..to all and to the OP.

LOL :thumbs: No harm done, I done give bad info before myself, and got railed for it.

Best advice, find the answer on USCIS, or DOS web sites quote the answer and provide a link. This does two things, you learn about the process, and backs up your answer with facts from the source.

My husband and I traveled abroad about 6 weeks before the expiration date of his two-year card. We had already filed for removal of the conditions, so he had an "in process" file with the Service that could probably have been accessed from CBP computers. We carried the NOA2 from the I751 just in case we got any questions.

The guy who admitted him never said a word about the "short" date on the green card. He just stamped the passport and never asked a single question.

Your wife will be just fine.


Our journey together on this earth has come to an end.

I will see you one day again, my love.
