    You must be in the US when the reentry permit application is filed (including when USCIS receives it). You can leave the US after they receive it, but you must return for the biometrics.

    I was in the US, filled the re-entry permit, waited for the notice for biometric and gave the biometric.
    I filled the re-entry permit for my five year old daughter, but her biometric was not taken by the time of leaving the country.
    My question is does children also have to wait for biometric, cause when I got my biometric appointment,it was not indicated that she too has to give.
    Question no 2, suppose I get the re-entry permit but she does not get hers, can she be deny entry when we travel togather?
    Iam concern because when I check the status of our re-entry permit, mine is in second stage but hers is still in stage one.

    Children under 14 are not fingerprinted. It is even possible (though unlikely) for USCIS to waive the photo if none was supplied. She is too young to have an intent to abandon her status therefore is linked yo your "intent" and you did get the REP. She should be OK. Please keep us updated on what actually happens.

    Thank you so much for the reply.
    I have posted her birth certificte showing her date of birth,her copy of passport with her picture, and copy of her green card to USCIS ( ASO) for verification and confirmation, that she is actually five years and two months now.
    This is because my host tells me, the notice was posted requiring her to appear for biometric.
    Do you think, it was a mistake?
    Someone help me here!

    My re-entry permit was posted on the 5th oct.2012.
    my five year daughters' re-entry permit did not come. this worries me. maybe because she did not
    give biometric,what do you people think.
    Should I take her back for biometric?

    She cannot provide biometric information as she is too young. Did you send in photos for the child? Anyway, like BigJoe5 said, she's too young to be held responsible for immigration actions, so there isn't much of a worry.

    Thank you so much for the answer.
    I think I will just hold on and worry less, since I already have my re-entry permit.
    But my question was, since I had applied for her, paid the required fee and got acknowledgment receipt.I also posted her two pass port photos, birth certificate,copy of her passport and Green Card, is she not suppose to have been given too?
    Yes BigJoe5 thought that shes' too young tobe held for immigration actions. I too believe so.
    Once again thanks

    Well, you might still get her RP. They can take a long time, sometimes, so if you sent in everything, it will likely be issued. The only question is when.

    Thank you for your encouragement and advise. I will wait. I sent them everything yes.

    Didn't attach Valid Reentry Permit with Form I131

    I didn't attach my Valid Reentry Permit with Form I131 while applying for a new one. I attached photo copies, I have completed my finger printing. Now my friend told me that I should have attached the orignals.
    My Question --
    1. Should I send them the orignals with the reciept number or Wait till they ask me
    2. Is the request going to be denied without the valid Permit.
    3. Any suggestion .... .

    Renewal re-entry permit

    Hi everyone,

    I have a question about the renewal re-entry permit and it's very urgent. My parents had the re-entry permit before they left U.S. And the re-entry permit they had are valid before February 2014. The problem is they may not come at the time of January or February. They wanted to come this Auguest instead, which is half year before the expire date. I heard there is a rule that you can not renew the re-entry permit unless it is three months before the expire date. Can they still do the renew procedure in this Auguest? Thank you very much!
