A: If you want to travel outside of the United States, you need a valid, unexpired passport. Additionally, it is best to have proof your permanent residency. So, you should file Form I-90, Application to Replace Permanent Resident Card. After filing, you will likely receive a receipt notice or a biometrics appointment notice. If you receive a biometrics appointment notice, be sure to take a valid passport and your expired permanent resident card to the appointment.
