Greencard Expires during N400 Processing - anyone get a stamp to travel?

4 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts



My husband and I submitted his N400 in August with an estimated completion date in June 2019.  His 10 year greencard expires in March.  We are planning to travel out of the country in April.  Has anyone had experience getting their passport stamped for travel and work purposes?  Did anyone have any issues leaving the country and coming back?


Thank you in advance!

It's a crying shame you have to spend $540 to renew due to their slow processing and then turn it in shortly after. Then again you were eligible for citizenship in 2009 or 2011 depending on if you stayed married to your fiancé petitioner. Back then you could have been a citizen in a couple of months.

I just renewed mine in end of August. And now I am going to file N-400. I am not travelling, but I still didn't want to be without a green card while waiting. I need that to renew drivers license in my state. I too could have applied for N-400 long time ago, but wasn't ready. I knew of course I'd have to pay the extra money for the GC. 


At my biometrics they put a sticker thingy on the back of my GC so its extended til August 19. It is going to run out in January. Hopefully my replacement is here before that. I expect the N-400 to take a long time since I am in Texas. 


I just go with the flow while still a LPR. File this, pay that. Yes ma'am, yes sir. 😄. Keep my nose clean. Hopefully this will all be over with soon and I don't have to constantly file and pay and worry anymore.
