Hello,my name is Judith. Thank you for this opportunity to answer your questions.
You need to enter the US and then apply for a re-entry permit. You have to file form I-131 here in the US and it can take 90 days for your biometrics to be done.
There is instructions to expedite included in the general form instructions.

You still need a re-entry permit even if employed abroad.You can get an expediteIf the applicant needs expedited processing, the Form I-131 instructions provide specific information for submitting pre-paid express mailers with the Form I-131 for USCIS to send the applicant’s receipt and ASC appointment notice, as well as the completed re-entry permit or refugee travel document, if approved. A request for expedited processing should contain the applicant's reasons for such processing so that USCIS may determine whether they qualify for expedited processing.In addition, if the applicant must attend an ASC appointment in 14 days or less, the applicant may provide an email address or fax number so the Nebraska Service Center will be able to fax the ASC appointment to the applicant. The ASC is willing to accept this duplicate copy of the appointment notice.If the applicant needs to expedite the I-131 after filing, then the applicant should contact the National Customer Service Center at 1-800-375-5283, or make an INFOPASS appointment at their local office.Here is the link to the formhttp://www.uscis.gov/portal/site/uscis/menuitem.5af9bb95919f35e66f614176543f6d1a/?vgnextoid=b11747a55773d010VgnVCM10000048f3d6a1RCRD&vgnextchannel=db029c7755cb9010VgnVCM10000045f3d6a1RCRDI don't make the laws.
