My name is Jeremie and I recently received my Diversity Visa - 2011 and there is a question for which I need your help.
(my immigration visa ends april 26 2011)
I carrefully read the article "Retain Green Card - Useful tips" and I am still not sure about the answer I found:
I would like to enter the US in april, get my temporary stamp and leave the territory a few days after.
Then a friend of mine (who will receive the "plastic green card") will bring it back with him when he will return to France a few weeks later.
And I will travel back to the US to live permanently (with the "plastic green card") a couple of weeks later in june.
My question are:
Will the immigration officers let me go out of the territory witheout the green card (only with the temporary stamp)??
Will I have problems when I will enter the US with my green card (knowing that my immigration visa will be expired) ??
After I get my temporary stamp I will have to go to the local USCIS office to fill a form ?? If yes, which one ??
I must admit that I did not understand very well this point …
I do not know if I made myself clear.
Do not hesitate to contact me.
Thank you for helping me.
