2 Year Green Card- Do I need a I-131 Travel Document?

I have googled this a hundred times (well too many too count anyways). My wife's 2 year green card is set to expire in December 2012 and I am really hoping to go travel in July for approximately 3-4 weeks and come back to the United States.

Do I have to waste money to get her a travel document (I-131) even though it is only valid for the duration of her 2 year green card?

Can she just travel out of the country with me for 3-4 weeks and come back to the United States and reenter with her 2 year green card? (All the googled resources I have found said "Yes", she can reenter with a green card.)

I do not intend to file for her green card renewal until October when she is eligible 90 days out.

We have a child, so it should be pretty obvious that we are committed too.

P.S. She is going back to laos with me and has a valid passport.

July 2012? No problems at all for re-entry with just a green card and a passport.

She may have issues going to the other countries, though - make certain that she does or does not need a tourist visa for the places you are travelling.


Sometimes my language usage seems confusing - please feel free to 'read it twice', just in case !

We travelled out of the country for (11) months, returned, travelled out 4 weeks later for (5) months, then returned again on a CR1.

You are going to be fine.

A travel document is for stays out of the US for (1) year or longer. Have a safe trip!

Doesnt make a difference where the passport is from. A valid green card is adequate for US entry/exit (as long as the passport is unexpired LOL)

Is her valid Passport a Lao passport? or a US re-entry permit for GC holders?


 

i don't get it.
