Another question about traveling with a green card please. Do i necessarily need to have the plastic green card to travel overseas or the stamp in my passport is enough. Thanks
A valid I555 stamp is enough. You can carry your receipt for the I190 application (renewal or whatever the case is) with you also. If of course you have the GC in your possession, you travel with that and the passport. If you are not an LPR yet, you need to have advance parole approval.

You can travel with the temporary stamp in your passport. However, it is probably best to wait for the plastic card if you can.
It is best to wait for plastic green card. By the way on what basis have you been stamped as a permanent resident on your passport? It may be an important factor to consider.
