Form I-131 Re-entry

The Guangzhou Field Office does not issue or extend Re-Entry Permits overseas. Instructions on how to obtain or replace a Re-Entry Permit are found at the How Do I Get A Travel Document section of the USCIS website.

Transportation Boarding Letters

A transportation letter may be issued to a Lawful Permanent Resident to replace a lost or stolen. Application for a transportation letter must be made in person. Since these cases require extensive investigation, processing time can be extremely lengthy and issuance of a transportation letter is by no means assured. Additionally, Chinese authorities are under no obligation to accept a transportation letter as evidence that a person may lawfully depart the country.

The following documents will be required:

  • Proper Identification
  • Police Report or evidence of loss or theft of the Green Card
  • Proof of Residence in the United States within the last year
  • Passport size photographs (4)
  • Copy of your return airline tickets, if applicable
  • A Notarized statement that details your departure from the United States, your arrival to China, and when and how your Alien Registration Card was lost or stolen, is required.
  • If your Alien Registration Card is expired, explain why you departed with an expired card, or why you did not return to the U.S. before your card expired.
  • A certified translation of all documents that are not in the English.
