Hi friends,

I got 3 year visa stamp (CR/1) on my passport. In 3 vks I got my SSN. 5 vks after entry, I had to return to Sri Lanka to finalize some official matters at office about my resigning from work. 2 days after I left US, my hubby got my GC. And I have a copy of it. Kindly advise me;

(1) should he post the GC to Sri Lanka?

(2) If he won't post it, will it be a problem for me to re_enter US?

(3) If he will bring my original GC to the airport, (when he comes to pick me) will that be any help?

Your CR1 visa upon endorsement serves as a 1 year green card. You can use this in your first year as an LPR to enter the US. As long as it's valid, you do not need your physical green card to enter the US.

1. Bad idea. You do not need it, so no reason to risk getting it lost in the mail.

2. No.

3. He can bring it. Since he can't reach you before you enter the customs area, it will be of little use.

I found I didn't share my experience what has happened to me in my country without a GC to prove. When the day I was departing my country, at the airport counter, they asked my GC. I showed them a copy of that telling GC is at my US home cos it was  received after my leaving States. But they didn't believe it. They passed me from one officer to another and it took me about 30 mnts for me to make them understand. I showed them my I-551 endorsement but they didn't pay attention. Thank God, finally one senior officer approved my traveling. But it was a scary  experience. 

No any problem at USA airport for entering as they know it.
