Applications for Reentry Permits must be filed while the respective applicant is physically in the United States. Reentry Permits cannot be issued or extended overseas. However, after filing an application for a Reentry Permit in the U.S., you may have it mailed to a USCIS Office overseas. If you are notified that your Reentry Permit is available at the USCIS Tegucigalpa Office, please contact our Office to pick it up on Mondays from 9:00 a.m. to 11:00 a.m.
Instructions on how to obtain or replace a reentry Permit are found under Emergency Travel.
What if I have been outside the United States for more than 12 months?
People who have remained outside the United States for more than one year without a valid Reentry Permit or beyond the validity of a Reentry Permit, may be eligible to apply for returning resident status with the Department of State Immigrant Visa Section at the U.S. Consulate in Tegucigalpa.
