DV 2019 Oceania Selectees

Hi all,

I've booked my activation trip for October!!! I'm flying into San Francisco and then making my way across to NYC for a bit of an extended holiday, but I was wanting to go to Vancouver for a week to see a friend before I go to NYC. Has anyone had any problems leaving the US and then coming back after a week without their physical Green Card? I know the visa in the passport acts as evidence for up to a year, but I'm unduly concerned that I won't be able to get back in without my physical GC!
You passport will be stamped - so no problem.

I have my activation trip in Hawaii next week! Getting so excited to officially be processed as a resident.. and equally excited to escape winter for a short break!
Same I am doing a very short activation trip and apartment hunting. It will also be my first time driving on the wrong side of the road so that will be interesting.

It’s getting very real now and I’m looking forward to being able to hand in my resignation.
