Traveling while Pending Renew of AP (I-485)

Hi all,

Sorry if this question is already answered.

We  had our GC interview(K-1 into I-485) and the lady said that she will call if we need to redo our medical exam(being over a year of wait) - This was about two months ago and she hasn't called however our status online is still saying that USCIS scheduled an interview - meaning it hasn't updated since the interview date - Houston, TX.

My wife's working permint and AP document (all in one card) is about to expire on February 27th - we have all forgotten about it - we will send the renew documents tomorrow with expedited shipping. I understand that all we need the acceptance letter and it will be auto renewed for 180 days - we were hoping to travel in April for a few weeks.

The question is - if the new card(do we even get a new updated card?) doesn't arrive on time for our departure - can we use our expired card and the renew acceptance letter to present and point of entry to get back in the country?

 

Any feedback is appreciated,

hi

 

nope, the acceptance isn't an extension, you need the actual card, which can come between 4 to 6 months, so you won't be able to travel unless you get a stamp in your passport

The extension letter is only for her EAD, not her AP. Unless she gets her GC before April there's no way she can leave the country after her combo card is expired unless its an emergency, then she can obtain an emergency AP.
