My Priority date becoming current in July 2010 visa bulletin.Can I travel to India in July 2010, while my Priority date is current ,Or I should cancel my program?
Wanted to understand of any factor which can effect/delay my green card approval from all GC guru's if a person is not in US while his/her PD becomes current in that month?
Will appreciate any response or guidance!
Thanks and Regards,
I believe that you can travel to India - no need to worry. You can use your AP while returning - and it will work even if your GC has been approved. I personally saw this working for my friend couple of years back. He and his wife travelled to India - I was checking their mails for them. I received their GC while they were in India. They didn't have any problems in returning using AP.
I would also ask an immigration lawyer to double-check. All the best.

Absolutely no problem. (assuming you visit is not very long - greater than six months and your GC gets approved as soon as you leave).
You can return using your AP as some suggest. Be mindful not to show any non-immigrant visa ( H1, L1, B1 etc.) as that might be construed as abandoning LPR status. If you do not have a GC, some have been given deferred inspection (to prove your status in a local USCIS office at a later date). Another option is for someone to collect your GC and mail it with a reliable service abroad (FedEX etc.) - in anticipation of some disagreement, this is perfectly legal - it is not a passport and is a entry document not a departure doc.
