Travel with Pending ROC

7 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

I have an upcoming business trip to the Philippines by mid-July for around 3 weeks. Is it safe for me to travel while my ROC is still pending, looking at my timeframe (signature below)?

I would greatly appreciate any helpful response.

Thanks!

The extension letter serves as travel doc.

Thanks for responding.

I understand that. I guess my question is, would it create conflict with the process, ie if ever we'll have an interview, am i gonna receive it while i am out of the country based on my timeline? What worse may happen?

Generally, no interview; the only issue may be if the plastic-card (10-year) arrives while you are out.

Carry your extension letter and your expired Green Card with you. The issue is that your documents are easily verifiable when you are leaving the US but on your way back, the Immigration officials at Philipines might question the authenticity of your extension letter. Also, it depends how long you are going for. If you have recently filed and recieved the NOA, there might be a while before you can expect an interview(if there is one). If you are planning a longer stay, then you will have to figure out whether you can afford to defer your interview upon request, which is not advisable. Who knows when they might call you in again. Good Luck.

How could that be a problem?

You have a point. Philippines is not as strict as US though, so I don't forsee that happening.

I filed last week of April and got my NOA about 2 weeks after. Did my biometrics mid June.

It's just gonna be 3 weeks trip, I dont consider it long, or is it?
