Travel while I-90 (USCIS Error) is under processing ?

Recommended Posts

Hello Experts, I received my GC with the given name/surname mentioned incorrectly (switched around), I verified that this was mentioned correctly in the I-485 AOS. 

I filed the I-90 as USCIS error and mentioned the correct details there and am waiting for the receipt notice.

My question is, is it safe to travel (due to a family emergency) abroad with an incorrect 'named' GC ? Could there be issues with the airlines accepting this delta between the name in Passport vs The GC. I could explain the difference and show the receipt notice for the correction. Is this a better option compared to getting the I-551 stamp as all airlines don't understand this ? 

What do you guys think ? What else maybe the best course of action. Thank you !!

Never explain. Just use the current card till the corrected one arrives. The check if any is in the USCIS databases which will show that you have a Green Card.
