I believe the re-entry permit and refugee travel document is the same application/process. My I-131 was received march 24th, biometric notice date April 7th, biometric appointment date April 28th.. thats it so far
No. You only need to be in the US when you file it (including when USCIS receives it), and when you give biometrics (about 2-5 weeks after submitting the application). You can leave the US in between those points in time, and leave again after biometrics.
I understand that this threat is about processing time, but can someone chime in as to what reason I should indicate for reentry permit. Is there any common reason, where there are no chances of getting denial or RFE?
hi everyone. i am a US permanent resident. i got my greencard last year in california but did not get to stay long. i am now back in the US but decided to try New York area. I would like to file a re-entry permit. will it be okay to put a new york address in Part 1 of the form? I would like the biometrics to be done in the NY area. Is this okay? I will not be in LA this time and i will need to leave in 3 weeks time. if i put expedite on the envelope, will USCIS schedule my biometrics ASAP? thank you all for any advise.

Q. I am a Lawful Permanent Resident (LPR) who will be out of the US for more than 1 year? What documents will I need to return to the US?
If the LPR departs from the U.S while the I-131 is pending, but before biometrics are taken, then the adjudication of the I-131 re-entry permit application will not be affected as long as the applicant returns to the U.S. to attend the biometrics appointment before the first year of foreign travel has ended.
I've applied for my father-in-law from NJ. What was your timeline for the fingerprint. Our application was recieved on July 10 and check cashed on July 12 but haven't heard from USCIS about the fingerprint.
I've applied for my Father-in-laws reentry permit (From NJ) and we have not even recieved appointment letter for FP. Any ides of ho long it takes for FP appointment letter to come in. We applied end of June, chk was cashed 1st week of July.
Got FP notice for Aug 17 at Elizabeth, NJ center on Sat Jul 30. Now would anyone be knowing how long does it take for the reentry permit to arrive after FP?
My father-in-law does not intend to leave US without having actual Permit in hand. Just wanted to have a rough idea so that we can book return ticket.
