Can i leave the US after biometric has done for re-entry permit? Does re-entry permit require a Exit stamp while leaving the US?

Asked over 1 year ago - Houston, TX

I am a US permanent resident. Recently I have applied for a re-entry permit. I have already attended my biometric appointment. Since I have asked the USCIS to send my re-entry permit to my home address in the US, could you please let me know if I can leave the US while my case is still pending and someone in the US mail the re-entry permit to me upon receiving it?

    Answered . Yes, you can leave ... but it is not a good idea.

    Also, once the permit is issued, even though it is good for 2 years, try to not stay out of the US for more than 6 months at at time.
