Crossing the border after filing 751

3 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

We were wondering what the procedure is for crossing the border once we've filed the &%!, and my green card has expired. I have a 95 year old Grandmother and may need to go to Canada at any time, how can I be sure I'll be able to get back to the US if this happens? I've done a search of the forum and came up with multiple answers but all were from older posts.

Thanks in advance!

Once you've submitted the I-751 form you will be sent a Notice of Action that will double as a 1 year extension of your green card. Simply bring the original extension letter and your 2 year green card with you when you leave the country.

Keep in mind you will also be receiving a letter for biometrics. If you are out of the country before you receive your biometrics letter make sure there is someone that can check your mail for you! Good luck.
