Traveling while waiting for I-751 to be processed

5 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

I came across this forum when google-ing for help about filing the I-751. My husband is pakistani, I am american, as is our son, and we were all hoping to go to pakistan to visit his family for a few months. DS and I have our pakistani visas, and we're ready to go! but we haven't heard anything about my husband's I -751 and we're not sure if we(DS and I) can leave the country while its still pending. Does anyone know if we have to wait? DH's greencard is set to expire in early feb, we sent the I-751 in mid december, if that helps. DH is scheduled for his biometrics scan on jan 31. Is there a certain date we should receive a date for an interview by? what is the likelihood that we will not be called back for interview?

Sure you can travel, you have not lost LPR status, the I-751's NOA-1 letter "receipt letter" has notation extends LPR status for 1 year beyond CR-Green-card expiration. This allows travel and work.

Simply carry expired card, and the letter when traveling.

Only issue is if Biometrics or a possible interview comes up while out of country, would need to return to the USA to take care of this.

Most simply travel after biometrics, as for ROC interview this in not too common, so would be safe to travel after biometrics.

No, I am american, my husband is not, he has a greencard. As an american, and since we filed jointly, will I have to go to the interview? Its way to expensive to have to come back to us for interview, especially since our son will be coming with me, and he will only be 20 months old(not easy to travel with him!)

It is a jointly filed application, and requires couple to interview jointly.

As I mentioned before, an interview for removal of conditions is rare.
