If you want to travel with an AS7 Green Card, there are a few things you need to know. First, the AS7 Green Card is only valid for travel to and from the United States.

If your passport has expired, you will need to renew it before you can use the AS7 Green Card. Finally, you need to make sure that your AS7 Green Card is up-to-date and valid.

What is an AS7 Green Card?
An AS7 Green Card is a physical document that proves that you are a permanent resident of the United States. If you have an AS7 Green Card, you are allowed to live and work in the United States permanently. You can also travel freely within the United States.
Applying for an AS7 Green Card
To travel with an AS7 Green Card, you will need to apply for a Green Card from the US Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS). You will need to submit a completed application form, a passport-sized photo, and proof of your US citizenship or lawful permanent resident status. You may also need to provide additional documentation, such as a copy of your birth certificate or proof of your employment in the United States. Once your application is approved, you will be issued a Green Card, which you can use to travel to and from the United States.
After You Receive an AS7 Green Card
After you have been granted an AS7 Green Card, you will need to take some time to adjust to your new life in the United States. Here are some things that you should do after you receive your Green Card:
1. Get a U.S. driver’s license. You will need to get a U.S. driver’s license if you want to drive in the United States. Each state has different requirements for getting a driver’s license, so you will need to check with your state’s department of motor vehicles for more information.
2. Register with the Selective Service System. If you are a man between the ages of 18 and 26, you will need to register with the Selective Service System. This is a system that allows the United States government to keep track of all the men in the country who are available for military service.
3. Get a Social Security number. You will need to get a Social Security number so that you can work in the United States and pay taxes. To get a Social Security number, you will need to fill out an application and provide proof of your identity and immigration status.

What if You Lose Your AS7 Green Card?
If you are a permanent resident and you lose your AS7 Green Card, you should report the loss to the local police and file a report with the U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS). You should also contact the Department of State’s Bureau of Consular Affairs to obtain a new passport. Once you have reported the loss of your AS7 Green Card, you will need to apply for a new Green Card.
Traveling with an AS7 Green Card
If you are a holder of an AS7 Green Card, you may travel freely within the United States. You may also travel to and from Canada and Mexico for business or pleasure without obtaining a visa. However, if you wish to travel to other countries, you will need to obtain a visa from the embassy or consulate of the country you wish to visit.
Re-entering the United States with an AS7 Green Card
If you are a permanent resident of the United States, you will be issued a green card (Form I-551) as evidence of your status. If you are a conditional permanent resident, you will be issued a green card valid for two years. Conditional permanent residents must apply to remove the conditions on their residence prior to the expiration date on their green card.
If your green card is lost or stolen while you are outside the United States, you should contact the nearest U.S. Embassy or Consulate for assistance in obtaining a replacement green card prior to your return to the United States.
You will need to present your green card when re-entering the United States after travel abroad, so it is important that you do not lose it and that you keep it up-to-date.
Applying for a U.S. Passport
If you have been granted asylum in the United States, you may apply for a U.S. passport once you have been physically present in the United States for at least one year after being granted asylum. Please note that you must use your full legal name when applying for a U.S. passport – if your full legal name is not on your current Green Card, you will need to update your Green Card before applying for a passport.
To apply for a U.S. passport, you will need to submit the following items:
-A completed application form (DS-11). You can get this form from a U.S. embassy or consulate, or you can download it from the website of the U.S. State Department (travel.state.gov).
-Your Green Card (I-551).
-One color photograph of yourself taken within the last six months, against a white or off-white background. The photograph must be 2 inches by 2 inches square, and your face must be between 1 inch and 1 3/8 inches from the bottom of the photograph to the top of your head (see “Photograph Requirements” below).
-A check or money order for the application fee ($110 for adults age 16 and over; $80 for children under age 16).
-If you are age 16 or 17, you must also submit either: 1) parental consent in the form of a notarized statement signed by both parents; or 2) proof of sole custody of either parent; or 3) proof that one parent has sole legal authority to apply for a passport on your behalf (such as a court order). If you are unable to submit proof of parental consent, please see our guidance on applying without parental consent.
You will need to submit all of the above items in person at a U.S. embassy or consulate, or at a designated acceptance facility or passport agency if you are living in the United States (see http://travel.state.gov/content/passports/english/where-to-apply/inside-us concordance_charitable parters_ucm_227981_ArticleFile#wheretoapplyInsideUS concordance_charitable partners ucm_227981_ArticleFile=for more information on how to make an appointment).
Renewing or Replacing an AS7 Green Card
If you are a permanent resident of the United States with an AS7 Green Card, you will need to renew or replace your card every 10 years. You can renew your card by mail or in person at a U.S. consulate or embassy. If you are outside of the United States, you will need to contact the nearest U.S. consulate or embassy to find out how to renew your card.
To renew your card by mail, you will need to fill out Form G-1145, E-Notification of Application/Petition Acceptance and mail it, along with your renewal application and supporting documents, to the address listed on the form.
If you are renewing your card in person at a U.S. consulate or embassy, you will need to bring your current AS7 Green Card, as well as a valid passport and one passport-sized photograph. You will also need to fill out Form G-1145, E-Notification of Application/Petition Acceptance.
