I am a permanent resident. I lost my green card in December, and filed for i-90 replacement in January, with a receipt date of January 26. I have booked tickets for August 3rd (3 months away) . How soon should I make an info pass , to get a stamp on my passport, if I have not received my green card? Also how likely will it be that they will stamp my passport is there a possibility of them denying ? Ive also been missing all my dentists appointments to Tijuana because I don't have my green card, since i travel through land, If i were to ask for a stamp this early so I could travel to tijuana , would they give it to me ? Thanks !

Here in Kansas City MO the officer that assisted me said they prefer to stamp the passport close to the date of travel, like within 2 weeks time, every office is a little different, make sure you bring any paperwork you have showing that you have applied for the replacement.

The officer had a hard time getting the stamp to look right on my passport, she wasted about 3 pages (stamp was good for 1 year), the reason I needed the stamp is because my GC was about to expire (I'm in the process of becoming a citizen now) and I needed proof of status to renew my DL, so she told me that if the DMV couldn't read the stamp and refused to renew my DL that I could make another infopass, bring two photos passport like and she would make me a temp ID on the spot, but I'm glad I didn't have to go back.

Well hope you can get your situation taken cared soon, good luck!
