Hi everyone, it's almost time to send our Form I-751 in and we're just trying to learn a bit more about this process. 

 

The date we can start sending it is 2/20, and we were previously told that we should send it in ASAP as soon as this day hits (no earlier either!). 

 

Can my wife who holds the green card travel in/out of the country after sending it in and not receiving any sort of approval (yet)? Or does one have to stay within the U.S. during the wait period before the government responds back? 

 

Also, we also have a wedding coming up the first week of May outside of the country (is it likely the new green card will arrive before then? How long does the I-751 process typically take?. 

 

Thank you

thank you. so after sending our papers in, typically how long has it been taking to receive the extension letter? Also, she *can* travel in/out of the country in the period between us sending the I-751 and before her actual green card expires, right? thanks again.

thank you, so from what I understand, the government has been taking a long time actually going through I-751 packages, so they're pretty much automatically giving 48 month extensions for simply sending your I-751 package in and expecting delay? which as you say, the extensions have been arriving about 1-2 weeks after they receive it.. which is pretty darn quick

1-2 weeks roughly. And yes she can travel anywhere she want before her actual green card expired. After it expired she can travel with her extension letter + the expired card

Yes, the receipt notice (and extension letter) won’t take too long to receive after filing the I-751. It’s the actual processing of the I-751 that takes forever! But she is free to travel without any issues (and continue to work). I’ve been doing both for the last 17 months!

Send it a week in, unless you want USCIS surprises. 


Immigration journey is not: fast, for the faint at heart, easy, cheap, for the impatient nor right away. If more than 50% of this applies to you, best get off the bus.

Send it a day after she qualifies.

 

NOA1 has been taking 2-4 weeks recently, and it will extend her GC by 48 months.

 

You should wait for the biometrics appointment letter.  If they re-use old biometrics, then you are golden.  If not, then I suggest you wait and attend the bio appointment, unless she will return by that date.  Bio appointments are around 6-8 weeks from filing, depending on work load of your local USCIS office.
