When can I travel internationally after my I-131 biometrics appointment?

I am a conditional green card holder. Once I have completed my biometrics appointment for the reentry permit (Form I-131), can I leave the country before receiving an approval if I have noted on the form to have it sent to the country I will travel to?

You should only travel with the approval of your advance parole document.

Yes, once you have done your biometrics, you can leave. Make sure the approved document will reach you, though.

Yes, you can travel abroad before receiving the approval, after filing the re-entry permit/biometrics completed.

You can travel abroad since you already have a conditional green card as long as you do not plan to be away for more than six months. If you plan to be away for more than a year, you do need a re-entry permit. If that is the case, you should wait until your re-entry permit is issued.

Yes, you can leave the country and be readmitted within six months or two years after a U.S. re-entry permit is issued.
