My wife is a green card holder, but needs to travel to India for more than a year. She is applying for a reentry permit and is now waiting for her biometrics appointment. If she leaves before biometrics, what will happen to the reentry permit application?


One’s reentry permit is not withdrawn by travel. But, the application will be denied if the biometrics are not done as scheduled. (It generally is not a problem to reschedule them one time, though.) (12.Mar.2018)
