Travelling w/unexpired green card while ROC but NO receipt notice

8 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

Hi all, I am a bit concerned with my holiday travels. Here is my situation and question:

 

  • I am a LPR, my conditional green card expires on Jan 25, 2019
  • I have already applied for removal of conditions (marriage-based), 90 days in advance (October)
  • For some reason, I haven't received the receipt notice extending my green card (I  think it was lost somehow by  the mail people).
  • I only received the biometrics appointment letter last week (with my case number in it)
  • I contacted USCIS in the online form about that. The date for an answer is Dec. 26
  • I am scheduled to go abroad for the holidays on Dec 19, will be back January first

 

The question is: Is it ok to reenter the U.S. with unexpired green card on Jan 1st that is set to expire on Jan 25? Has anyone done that? 

 

I really appreciate any thoughts you may have based on experience. Thank you!

You should be fine. My husband left the country and reentered on June 6th when his GC expired on June 25th. The BCO just gave him a reminder that his GC was about to expire and my husband told him thank you and that he had put the papers in.
