Green card Renewal - estimates for getting 797 and biometrics appointment


New Member
I am planning to apply for my green card renewal but I might have to travel outside and was curious what are the current estimates to get the I797- receipt acknowledgement (that can be used along with expired GC to return back) and also the estimate for when the biometrics appointment letter is being sent out.
In the past I heard it was around 3-5 weeks to get the biometrics letter.
