Hello, my parents are currently in the US and want to apply for a re-entry permit since they want to go to India in November 2015 but can only come back to USA after 2 years. However, their green card expires in Jan 2017. 1. If they apply for the re-entry permit now, will they receive it given that their green card is expiring in Jan 2017? 2. Do they need to be in the US to renew their green card or can they renew it from India? Thank you!
