Cincinnati, OH asked in Immigration Law for Ohio

Q: I applied I-90 Form and I got a stamp on my passport to travel. I noticed my passport will expire soon what should I do?

My mom applied I-90 Form to replace her Green Card in February 2022. Because her I-797 Notice of Action expired after 12 months, she received a stamp on her German Passport to be able to travel. She went to Germany and planned to return to Cincinnati on November 31, 2023. She now noticed that her German passport will expire in January 2024. If she would renew the passport the stamp will stay in her old expired password. We hope to receive her Green Card by October 2023, if not she needs to enter the US border with the stamp on her password. What is your suggestion in this case?

A: If her passport with the I-551 stamp expires before she receives her new passport she should enter the United States with her new, current passport as well as her expired passport with the stamp. The stamp will still be valid in the expired passport. She will have to travel with both passports, her current, valid passport and the expired passport with the stamp.
