CR1 Travel Inquiry

3 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

My wife came to U.S on CR-1 visa and lived here for two years. After that I applied to remove her conditional status. We receieved a notice to get the biometric done and we did that on the scheduled date. After that we got a notice saying her visa has been extended for one year.

I am planning to take a cruise to Bahamas and Bahamas does not require visa from U.S citizen or Green Card holder if visiting for less than 6 months and I am going for three days only.

The issue is my Wife's Green Card is expired and all I have is the letter from USCIS that says she has been extended for another year and that she can work and travel.

They don't send you a new green card right away when you apply to remove the condition. After taking biometric they may call you in for an interview and if all goes well they issue you a new card but this whole process takes around 9-12 months from the date you file to remove condition.

I want to confirm if she can travel on the green card or does she need to carry that letter as well to prove her visa was extended ?
