I've done my biometrics but still waiting for my travel docs.Can I travel with my passport & have my docs sent to my destination

New York, NY |

My travel date is imminent, and I didn't receive my travel documents.

Must I wait before it's issued before traveling? Is it risky that I travel without it and get it shipped to me in Lebanon for my return? Will I face problems re-entering the U.S?

If it is approved, the card can be sent to you.

But, if it isn't approved'll get stranded in Lebanon.

When were your biometrics taken? The card usually shows up 30-45 days later ... be patient.

I was granted asylum last July. I was told that I can travel with a travel document and it won't harm my pending green card status. In your opinion will it affect it?



I have an urgent reason to travel on nov 6. Even if my travel documents arrive on time I'll have to wait between 6-8 weeks for my visa to Lebanon to be processed on my travel docs. In this case can I travel as planned on not 6. With my Egyptian passport, have the documents sent to Lebanon, and then reenter using my travel documents?
