  • Re Entry Permit Renew/ Extend- Urgent

    I am living outside USA for the past 1.5 years. I have a Green Card and had taken a Re Entry Permit when I left USA in May 2005. Its been 1.5 years and it will expire in 6 months. My question is:

    How can I get the Re Entry Permit Renewed or extended?
    Can I do it from outside USA or I have to be within USA?
    Do I have to show in my passport that I visited USA in the last 6 months or a year?
    Also, is it possible to file for an extension of the re-entry permit after it expires or do you have to do it before it expires.

    Pl this is very urgent.

      -------------- Reentry permit is valid for 2 years from date of approval, be back before it expires at POE if they ask the passport show
      Also, is it possible to file for an extension of the re-entry permit after it expires or do you have to do it before it expires.

        Thanks for the reply.
        Had couple of more questions:
        1. How long before the expiration date of Re Entry Permit do I need to enter USA? IS there any such requirement even if I enter 1 week before expiration is it OK?
        2. The information on USCIS website says that u have to submit old re entry permit when applying for the new one if it has not yet expired. If applying 1 week or so before expiration, do we still need to submit the old re entry permit?
        3. How long before expiration can u apply- what is the earliest u can apply for new re entry permit prior to expiration of the old one - can u apply say 6-9 months in advance or it has to be 1-2 months before?
