Reentry Permit - Frequently Asked Questions


How can I check the status of my Re-entry Permit application?

You may check status by using VisaPro's free visa status service.


Can I be denied issuance of a Re-entry Permit?

Yes, a Re-entry Permit may not be issued if:

  • You have already been issued such a document and it is still valid, unless the prior document has been returned to the USCIS, or you can demonstrate that it was lost
  • A notice was published in the Federal Register that precludes the issuance of such a document for travel to the area where you intend to go

How can I appeal a denial of Re-entry Permit?

If your Reentry Permit application is denied, the denial letter will tell you how to appeal.

  • Generally, you may appeal within 33 days of receiving the denial
  • Your appeal must be filed on Form I-290B, Notice of Appeal to the Administrative Appeals Unit
  • The appeal must be filed with the office that made the original decision

Note: After your appeal form and a required fee are processed, the appeal will be referred to the Administrative Appeals Unit (AAU) in Washington, DC.
