    Greencard

    Advertisements



    Hi everyone,
    I'm lost . Can someone tell me how long you can stay outside US (assuming you are a greencard holder and had it for 5 months) without jeopardizing your status? Is it a year or 6 months? And do you need a reentry permit to enter US...how does this process works? What do you need to carry with you while travelling so that you don't run into problems?

    I asked around and even called INS but i couldn't get a hold of anyone. I'm sure some of the fellow students who are there or will be there soon have come across these questions. Can someone help me and tell me what i should do?

    Any help would be appreciated.

    A Permanent Resident of the United States can travel freely outside of the US. A passport from the country of citizenship is normally all that is needed. To reenter the US a Permanent Resident normally needs to present the green card (Permanent Resident Card, Form I-551) for readmission. A reentry permit is needed for reentry for trips greater than one year but less than two years in duration.
