    In talking to other folks who renewed their greencard-I was told the process takes about 3 months. If all goes well isnt that the same time period it takes to get citizenship?

    I would suggest getting the GC renewed and going with the I 551 stamp in the meantime.

    Most likely she will be refused boarding when she tries to leave.

    Go the the U.S. Embassy or Consulate and get a boarding letter permitting you to travel to the U.S.

    You will obviously get sent to secondary inspection and probably sent to a deferred inspection appointment.

    I'd imagine she'll definitely get a visit to secondary inspection on return. It's not a good idea to try and enter with an out-of-date card but the CBP should be able to look up her status in their computers to verify she is an LPR. The card may expire but the status doesn't. If they can't verify, they should parole her into the country and let an IJ decide if she's an LPR still. It would be a good idea for her to take as much documentation proving her life here in the USA ie. bank account, mortgage/rent payments etc.

    One major reason for obtaining US Citizenship. You never have to worry about your immigration status ever again.

    My friend just realized that her green card exp and she made plans to travel out of the country to visit her sick grandmother that raised her. Can she travel without problems. At the same time she has decided to apply for citizenship instead of renewing green card-is that a wise move. She is eligible for citizenship having lived here for over 15 yrs.
