Travel with newly submitted I-751

4 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

Hi,

I submitted my I-751 on February 15th (it was delivered yesterday, February 17th.) My Conditional GC expires April 11, and I am hoping to travel outside of the country from March 5-12 (so before my conditional GC expires).

Has anyone had any trouble traveling while they are waiting for their I-751 to be approved? Should I expect to receive my NOA1 in the next 2 weeks? And if I don't receive it, is it still ok to travel on my conditional GC with a pending NOA1? (I know it will not have expired, but I just wanted to double-check).

Also, if I get a biometrics appointment during the week I'm away, are they possible to change? I live in Chicago and filed in CA.

Thank you!

Firstly not a problem for you, you will still have a valid card to reenter to the USA with.

Anyway only problems I have ever seen is one report about an Exit control officer in China not accepting the letter and expired green-card, causing a US resident to miss a flight, and having to talk with a supervisor. From that experience others on another board simply go to field office and request an I-551 stamp in passport prior to travel while holding an expired green-card+I-751 letter.

I traveled while my I-751 is pending and was out of the country for over a month. Since you are traveling in March and your GC does not expire til August, you should be fine :)

Happy trip!

You will have no problem. You won't need the extension letter because your greencard will still be good. (If you do get it before the trip, do take it with you, just in case.)

I wouldn't worry about this at all.
