Temp. Greencard Stamp OK to Travel?

Hi ;

My wife has recently been approved as a permanent resident and her passport has been
stamped with I-551, indicating that she is lawful permanent resident.

She would like to travel abroad for short time now (2 weeks) and she has doubts that
the when abroad the airline will not recognized this stamp as sufficient evidence of
her US residency and will not allow her to board the plane to U.S.

Does anyone has any experience or information regarding the above. I would greatly
appreciate it.

Sincerely

Gene Ariani

Travel with the stamp is done regularly and usually without problems by lots of
people. However, I have heard of instances where airline front personnel didn't know
what to do. In these cases, however rare they are, talking to a supervisor helps. It
also helps to have the approval notice with you.

I understand your concern. The I-551 stamp is so unimpressive and appears so
unofficial that it does raise these types of questions.

What airline is she flying? Most of the major airlines are familiar with it. My
mother had the same concerns a few years back when she renewed her Green Card.
British Airways asked for her Green Card when she checked in for her flight back to
the US. She said that she had a stamp from US immigration. They looked at her I-551
stamp, and there were no more questions.

Thanks for the Response Stephen;

She is flying with Turkish Airlines to Istanbul and back.
