Returning after 4 months and the Re entry permit has not been mailed yet
Hello to all,

I'm a green card holder studying back in my country and I return to the US every semestral break (after 4 or 5 months) to visit my family. I applied for 1 previous reentry permit already and it expired last oct 2017.

I applied for another reentry permit (I-131) last june and it got produced last September 20. The site says usually, it takes about 60 days to mail the document but, I haven't received an email that it was shipped/mailed to my consulate.

My flight to return for the Christmas break is in a few weeks. I'd just like to ask if it's safe to return to the US without it? And if I do return without it, do I need some sort of proof that I have been just studying abroad when I get questioned at the border patrol? Thank you.
