  • Do I need to get I-551 stamped on passport?

    Hi Friends,

    I am a green card holder and I have green card in my hand. I am planning to visit canada. Do I need to get stamped I-551 in my passport? In canadian immigration website I found this following info.

    For permanent residents, acceptable documents to prove this status would include:

    * Valid Green Card
    * Valid I-551 endorsement in their passport

    It is also advisable to bring a valid picture ID, such as a Driver's Licence.

    Is it compulsory to get stamped in my passport?

    Thanks in advance to ur answers.

      I-551 stamping is not normal procedure anymore, as I-551's are issued more frequently.

      If you show up anywhere with an I-551 stamp and no I-551, they will want to know why, and the stamp had better be recent.

      It is not meant to take the place of the card, it while waiting for card.
