How can I travel with my EB-5 I-829 receipt notice in the absence of a green card?

The EB-5 conditional green card mailed by USCIS in Jan. 2021 was never received by me. I filed an I-90 and have still not received my replacement green card. In mid-October, when the 90-day window opens before the expiry of the conditional GC, I plan to file my I-829. The I-551 stamp on my passport expires on Dec. 15. I need to urgently travel for a month outside the U.S. between December and January. If I receive the I-829 receipt notice in time, what else will I need to be able to travel? Getting an InfoPass appointment is taking very long. Will I need another stamp on my passport since I do not have a green card, or is the I-829 receipt enough? Is there anything I can do to expedite the process?

The I-829 receipt notice will allow you to travel and re-enter the U.S.

The I-829 receipt extends your evidence of green card status for 18 months. Take a copy of the PR card, I-90 receipt and I-829 receipt. If you can get another passport stamp, get that, but they are hard to get these days.
