Thread: International Travel with pending I-751 & expired GC

  1. #1
    Trying to find info out. A friend of mine has a conditional residence card (thru marriage) and it expires in September 2009. He hasn't filed his I-751 yet to remove the condtions on his residency, and is about to do so. However, he has a vacation planned with his wife, that falls right in the middle of when his card expires. It was my understanding that because he has a CONDITIONAL residency - that no matter what, once his card expires, he is not permitted to leave the United States and expect re-entry. He was told by someone that he could send his application in, and using the I-797C Notice of Action receipt, he would be able to travel with no problems and be able to re-enter the country. Now, if he had a normal 10 year perm residency card that he was renewing with an I-90, I can maybe see this as no problem. But since his conditional residency expires by a certain date, how would it be possible for him to just use the I-797C to travel with his expired card and passport?

    Does anyone know if this is true or not?? Please help!

    The I-797C Receipt Notice will actually say that the green card has been extended for one year.

    The best advise you can give to your friend is to apply for removal of condition. He should not delay it by waiting for last minute. He is almost late.

    Without the extending I-797C, you cannot travel. You can be refused entry at worst and an deferred inspection at least. The airline may also refuse you boarding. Don't travel witout it.
