    I just want to point out that my understanding is based on my personal experience. In my case, my NOA expired AFTER my GC not before as others are dealing with. The INS ajudicator told me that my status was good until 1yr from the date on the letter not the 1yr from the date on the GC. In my case, that works out better for me. I never asked him what would be the situation if the NOA expires before the 1yr anniversay of the GC expiry...

    Just thought I would explain where my info came from...

      I *just* got off the phone with an Immigration Officer at the National Customer Service Center and he informed me that the expiration date is in deed according to the date on your alien card and not the letter. He said if we go by the letter than we're not actually getting a year extension. Again conflicting information but that is what he said.

        NOA has nothing to do with expiration date / period.... u count one more year extended from expiration date mentioned on conditional GC...good luck...

          OK then... I stand corrected.

          Although, the info you guys have is directly in conflict with what INS told me. However, like I said, my NOA expired more than 1yr from my GC expiry date. Newark district office told me (in person) that the NOA was my expiry date not my GC 1yr anniversary.

          Maybe they just go with the later date of the two - who knows...

          Sorry if I mislead anyone. I was (and always do) just going with my own experience.

              I should point out that in another thread, a member 'BLANK' indicated that when he crossed the border, the officer told him that it was 1yr from the date of the letter... I strongly suspect that if you asked the INS this question several times you would get different answers...

              So, what that proves - I have no idea...

                I called the immigration hotline, the lady on the phone put me on hold and spoke with her specialist, and came back and said that, the extension of one year is from the date my GC expires plus one year.

                So its the date on GC that really counts according to her.

                But anyways, I would not travel outside USA, at this moment, just to avoid any trouble.....!

                  Personally,

                  I would cover my butt and try to renew my I-551 as soon as the eariler of the two expire if I was planning to travel outside the US. That would be the safest.
