  • Can I travel outside USA on my I-551 stamp on my passport ?

    I just became your new member. I entered USA on immigration visa on June 13th. My passport has I-551 stamp which has a validity date of October 14, 2009.

    My question: Can I travel outside the USA and re-enter on this I-551 as I have not yet receive my Green Card. The USCIS web-site says that it will take up to eight week to receive my plastic green card as they are upgrading their system.

    Waiting for the reply.

      Hi Khaniu and welcome to ILW.

      Yes you can travel outside and re-enter the US with the I-551 stamp on your passport, it is a temp GC but not a card. You should have no problems. Just make sure your passport has enough validation on it, and not expire while you are away.

      Happy travels
