    Default Travel Without Physical Possession of Your Green Card

    A legal permanent resident was notified by the USCIS that his new Green Card contained an error. He was instructed to return the Green Card, and that a replacement would then be issued. He has returned the card and is awaiting the replacement.

    He is scheduled to soon travel out of the country, and is worried that he will not receive the new Green Card before his travel date. Is it safe for him to travel without a Green Card in his possession?

    Default Re: Travel Without Physical Possession of Your Green Card

    He should not go out of the United States without his Green Card.

    He should make an Infopass appointment, and take the USCIS correspondence about the error and replacement with him to his appointment. He should also take his ticket with him for his upcoming travel (e.g., if he's traveling by airplane, his airplane ticket). He can then ask them to stamp his passport with a temporary Green Card stamp.

    If that effort is successful, he will be able to take his trip even before he receives his replacement Green Card.
