returning BEFORE 2 years on with reentry stamp

Hi,

If you have a green card and apply/receive the 2 year re-entry permit to be out of the country, does that mean as soon as you come back the permit is canceled?

I.E. if you wanted to come back for a few days to celebrate a holiday, etc?

THanks

If you're talking about the advance parole document, it is good for multiple entries. They send you two copies. You can make photocopies so they keep the photocopy after each use and you retain an original. Bear in mind, they don't actually have to honor that document if there is other reason you might should be denied entry. However, with a green card, you don't need AP for returning to the US. The green card is your entry ticket.

If they decide that you are not living in the Unites States they can revoke your green card. They are tightening down on people that get a green card and try to "keep" it for a long term visitors visa by stopping by for short periods. Be prepared to be questioned about your proof of US residence. Have you filed income taxes ?


This will not be over quickly. You will not enjoy this.

Tightening down?

Moving this to General Immigration from the UK forum since it is not a UK-related question.

The OP is not inquiring about AP as the filing status is DCF -- they are inquiring about a re-entry permit.

Edit to add -- forgot to tick the box leaving a link to the former forum. I'll fix this with an empty post below.

A re-entry permit is valid until it expires. It is a booklet, similar to a passport. Visas and entry/exit stamps can even be placed in the re-entry permit booklet, and it can be used in lieu of a passport in many countries. It can be used for multiple entries to the US, as long as it's still valid. The permit is usually issued with a validity of two years.
