    Answered . What you call a 'passport' is a travel document ... known as a re-entry permit for people with greencards that want to travel out of the us for more than 6 months, but less than 2 years.

    Most people with greencards DO NOT NEED this document.

    Also, just because someone gets it .. they can still have problems if they leave the US for more than 6 months.
