Interviews with new GC?

1 post in this topic

Recommended Posts



We just got our GC (CR-1) while living abroad. I (the immigrant) have an interview lined up in the US and they are flying me out there for just two days and then I’ll return home. My wife will not go with me as we’re not moving until beginning of 2019.


Since we don’t want anything to go wrong I just want to double check a few things...


1. Can I enter the US without her or does she need to be with me for some reason?

2. Since I’m just staying for two days and then going back there won’t be enough time to get the actual green card. Can I use the visa in my foreign passport to get back when we move there permanently? It says on it that if stamped it should be good for 1 year...

3. Anything else I should make sure to do?
