Default Carry GC in your wallet/purse ??

Friends,

Are we required to carry GC with us all the time ?

My attorney says we must. What if I lose it or damage it ? Can we carry a photocopy ?

Yes, the rule is to carry the original. If lost, apply for a new one. So, i preached.
I never carry it, one day one immigration officer is going to catch me and grill me.

Karthik - That was a genuine question. I lose a lot of stuff. So, I had to ask. May be my timing was not good with VB releasing today and all. I am not trying to rub salt. Anyways, good luck.

As per law, one must always carry the original GC with them, like DL. You can see this instruction in 485 approval notice/welcome letter. I am doing it.

I haven't and don't plan to in the future to carry it in my wallet like my DL...considering where I live.

I just have my A# memorized...but maybe those who travel in Border areas or usual Border Patrol checkpoints or frequent travelers might have to.

1. When you were a student did you carry your I-20 with you all the time?
2. When you were on H-1B did you carry it around?

If your answer is yes, then do carry your GC too!

It is so pathetic that there are so much people waiting in EB3-I category.

This Guy just applied in Dec 2004 and got GC. His question is whether i need to carry ?

it is only karma.

Technically we are supposed to carry our original passport and visa papers, how many of us do it.

Personally i dont and i dont think they gonna make you accountable for that.

I feel for you buddy. You can't be hating the player....you got to hate the game. This is exactly how I felt when 2006 PDs were getting approved last year. You are totally right....GC depends on your Karma.

Someone told me that taking color photocopy of PR is illegal just like you cannot take color photocopy of currency. Maybe a B&W copy is an alternative.

Btw, why is this hatred towards someone that just walked out of the queue? Blame the system, not the poor individuals who have also waited like everybody else. Instead of venting out on innocent people, do something constructive to help yourself and others. As a donor, pls post responsibly. Guys, give me red if it is wrong to say that.

Nobody is rubbing salt out here. It is all about perception. Dont blame the individual for that.

If you cannot tolerate reading such posts, please do not read those. The title was VERY SPECIFIC about the content.
