Travel to Dubai when Green Card Condition Removal is in Process

7 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

Hi Everyone,

I filed for removing my conditional status on the Green Card on April 2nd 2012. I have received the NOA 1 which states I am authorized travel and employment in the country. My Green Card Expired in May.

I want to travel to Dubai in November. Does anyone have an experience regarding traveling on a expired green card and NOA 1 letter. I am really worried to travel outside USA. I will be traveling with my husband who is a US citizen.

Though I will carry all documents like Marriage Certificate, Employment Letter, lease ect to be on the safer side.

Has anyone had a hard time entering back in US at the immigration ??

I will really appreciate all the help

Thanks and Regards,

Sal

will I have issues with the airlines. Usually they verify the green card before checking you in. They ask for the visa/Green card at the checkin counter and before boarding when you leaving US. Will they be able to verify the NOA1 letter.

Hello, I applied for I-751 in January and I didn't receive my greencard yet, but I have my NOA1 with me and I left the country twice.

At the end of July, I decided to go to my grandmother's birthday in Brazil, so I called USICS, and the person who answered me, told I should be able to travel with no problems, but it would be good to check with the airline company. So I called United Airlines, and they said that I would have no problems boarding on the flight back home if I had the letter and the expired greencard.

I spent 3 days in Brazil, and when I came back, I had no issues during the boarding process, but I needed to show my documents to three different people before I board the plane. When I landed in the US, I went to the "foreigners lane" and when I hand the letter to the CBP officer, he asked what that letter was for and I explained that my greencard was expired. He asked me how many days I was out of the country, and why did I have Global Entry. Then he took my fingerprints and picture, stamped my passport and let me in.

The second time I went there was last week, and I went with my husband. I had no problems boarding the plane, and when I arrived here in the States, I decided to go to the "resident and citizens lane," and the only question the officer asked was what I was doing in Brazil. He also got my fingerprints, picture and stamped my passport.

I had no problems at all, although I confess that I was a little worried the first time since I was traveling alone.

My husband went for a 2 week visit to Australia while he was waiting for his 10 year green card. He had no issues with the airline (Qantas) in regard to boarding the plane. In LAX (Los Angeles airport) he was asked why he was in Australia (he went through the residents and citizens line), his passport and letter of extension were checked and that was it.
