The Consular Section of the U.S. Embassy in Uzbekistan processes applications for Lawful Permanent Residents (LPRs) without a reentry permit or LPRs whose Green Cards have been lost or stolen. Please contact the Immigrant Visa Unit to schedule an appointment. Please note that effective January 2017, the United States Citizenship and Immigration Service requires a $575 online processing fee for this service.
The reentry permit is valid for 30 days only.
