  1. I travelled with my recent renewed Indian passport (no stamps in it, my old one had many including ones from DR), my expired GC and 24-month extension later to the DR in December / over NYE. During the arrival immigration process, they immigration officer carefully read the letter multiple times and stared at me a couple of times. Maybe added 5 min more to the process versus having a US passport or non-expired green card. When leaving the DR, I had a similar experience. The annoying part was I had to show the card and the letter to every single Delta employee that I came across - twice during check in and twice during the boarding process.
  2. It wasn't that big of a hassle and we didn't have to wait too long. I was with my US citizen spouse and we went up to the counter at the same time. It might also be a one time thing - first time travelling with the green card, first time travelling with the extension letter and first time with a new passport. I have a few more international trips coming up - I'll report back on any updates. I'm disappointed that I don't get to use the Global Entry machines. Oh well!
  3. Here's my experience with travelling with the extension letter: I was sent to secondary inspection to "verify my documentation" because of the letter. The officer told me that I will have to do that every time I enter the US because "it is very easy to create fraudulent documents". Global Entry wouldn't work for me - when I used my passport, the kiosk told me I should use my permanent residence card. When I used my card, it told me it's expired. Prior to the trip, I update the expiration date (on the Global Entry / TTPS website) with the extended date. I had no issues with the airline (Delta) while traveling from the Dominican Republic. They asked me to show it in 4 different places and each person wanted to examine every single detail. Your experience may vary depending on which airport you clear immigration.
  4. Well, I got the text message today - case number starts with LIN, one of the more slower ones.
  5. Yes, I submitted every page. I submitted a snapshot of our T-Mobile account showing a shared cell phone plan. I think it's safer to submit all pages. Nice!! I don't have a text message but my card was charged overnight.
  6. Here we go again! Our package was delivered today (8/5). Now starts the long waiting period filled with anxiety and obsession over what comes next! I used a credit card and signed up for text notifications - I will update this group as things progress!
