    If you are outside the US and your card will expire within six months and you will return to US before the card expires, you can file the I-90 application for your renewal as soon as you return to the US.

    If you are outside of the US when the card expires and you have not applied for the renewal card before leaving the US, you should contact the nearest US Consulate, USCIS office, or US port of entry before filing Form I-90.
