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.
