Dear all,

Currently,I received my IR-1 visa, and I am going to travel to the USA soon. At the same time, I received a full scholarship to do my MA in a university in Scotland, almost a year program, starting September 26 2011. Do you think leaving the US for study would jeopardize my US residency? We read that I can apply for Re-Entry permit ahead before I travel to the UK which I can show in the airport on the way back.

We are going to see an immigrant lawyer, but I would like to read your input in this issue.

Salam

Once you immigrate to the US, you can apply for the re-entry permit. The re-entry permit means that your time outside the US cannot be used in determining if you have abandoned your legal permanent residency. However, other factors can be used to determine if you have abandoned your legal permanent residency; whether you established a domicile in the US, whether you are filing US tax returns (LPRs are required to file even if all earnings are from sources outside the US), etc.

Google "maintaining my legal permanent residency" and follow the links provided by the US government.

As long as you have a re-entry permit and have evidence to show your ties to the US, you have nothing to worry about.
