Direct Consular Filing- IR 1 / Questions for a beginner

Hello all,

My husband of 5 years was denied a tourist visa, so we are going to try for the Direct Consular Filing- IRC 1. The embassy told us P0INT BLANK to file for a PERM visa.

We are both self employed, we work together, have a seasonal successful business, live abroad and have filed our US taxes/overseas income for the last 4 years. He has an INTI number.

My question is we are not sure we want to live permanently in the states- But since we were denied a tourist visa, its our only option. :blink: Can we apply for this, and then come back and live/work in our home abroad?

What is the deal with a re-entry permit to keep his status valid?

If he is granted this visa and we change our minds, what guarantee will we have to change this visa BACK to the 10-year tourist visa we wanted, but didn’t get in the first place?

How will I handle the residency thing? I live on PERM visa overseas. I don’t have a real home in the US and file our taxes as a non-res. I do maintain a real mailing address, credit cards, and a US telephone.

Any tips before we start? Thank you!
