Hello.

I read 212(e) and whole article about INA 212(e) Two-Year Home Country Physical Presence Requirement . I still have one question.

In the article it is tall that "Time spent in another country does not count to fulfill it." (requirement). What does it mean "time spent"? Is it a period of time when I am physically in another country or a period when I have visa to some third country (neither the USA nor my home country)?

Thank you in advance.

Kind regards,

Jahangir Najafov.

Any time spent in the country other than your own home country does not count towards the 2-yr HRR.

So if I am in my home-country and am employed by a local company that requires me to often travel on short trips abroad or if I take a one month vacation and am not in the country every little trip counts against my 2 years? This is silly because I can totally make the case that I am resettled into my home-country and am benefiting my country, while fulfilling the requirements of my job. Sorry, do you have a specific wording excerpt from a law paragraph or something similar. Thanks a lot.
