I looked through my passport and cannot find any stamp that would say I551 on it. How would that have to look like?
Initially, I did not enter with a green card - I got the green card while I was in the US.
The reason I don't have my card with me is that it was stored between some books my husband took home for me two days ago - and I noticed it missing it only late last night. He found it in the meantime.
You need to go to the US embassy and t=get an d'SB1 returning visa in order to board a flifht outsi9de to the US/
You can get a sp-ecial qppoinement for the BQ1 Visa through the 'a'merican 'citizens cervies.
Can he fedex it to you for the next available flighty?
I guess he can fedex it overnight. (The next consulate that does visas is in Frankfurt, I am in Munich, I guess fedexing is the easier and faster option.)
So what you are saying is that the copy of my green card is not enough to get me onto the flight?
Is there any sense in going to the airport and at least trying? (I need to do this anyway, since my kids should be on the flight and I need to go there with them.)
There is no harm in trying. It would not make you inadmissible or put a black mark on you in any way.
thanks! I did this and it worked basically without a glitch, I am back home. (Your last answer, by the way, already was too late but I had decided to do exactly that anyway.)
Hurray. I am glad you were able to use the photocopy and apologies for the delay in answering. We do have private practices that keep us off the boards at times.
