I have no wish to make you more nervous, but there is also the issue of your return to the US. You say that you do not have a green card, do you have a US passport? If not, have you already applied for a refugee travel document?

thursdaysd,

I got my travel document valid for 1 year and my i-94 ( which will allow me to re-enter U.S

I have traveled 2 times in past 3 years and had no problem getting back in, so I am not worried about that!

will I have problem getting a visa because i don't have a green card even though I am a legal alien of U.S.?

It seems to me as though you have all the proof you need, but I know that in some cases there are countries that will only accept an application made in the country of your nationality unless you are an official resident of another country.

@kerouac - sounds like she IS a legal US resident.

@Josephine - sounds like you have everything in order. Good luck next week, and do let us know how it turns out.

Josephine is an official resident of the US, she is legal alien and a refugee. France would not expect her to travel back to Congo to apply.
They wouldn't have given her an appointment if they weren't contemplating issuing a visa.

> Citizens of certain countries still need a visa even though they have a green card so it would make no difference even if you had one.
The requirements for your application are on the link I posted before, including for those who have a US refugee travel doc.

Yes, it sounds like it, but the Green Card is the official US resident card. A refugee permit is not the same thing.
