LPR-Travel Q

Hello,

My husband, Legal Permanent Resident of US, is planning trip home for 2 weeks. Question: on the return flight to Chicago, wondering if his trip can include two brief layovers (hour, two hours) in two different European countries- Italy, Netherlands. I can't find a clear answer anywhere, and Alitalia didn't know.

Anyone know?

Thanks for your help! =)

I'm not sure why the US would care where you stopped on the way back, it's not against the conditions of his GC.

Yes thats fine, as long as he is "US citizen" and not a legal Permanent Resident. The difference is that as a US citizen (Holder of a USA passport) you can go almost anywhere with a "visa in hand". Unless he is from on the countries that does not require a visa for the stoppover there, he might have to have stoppover visas to visit through those countries. Obviously not a schengen visa because its just a layover, but most countries require some sort of visa even to use as a layover (unless he has a USA passport).

Thanks- he does not have a US passport. He's not a US Citizen yet. I know the US doesn't care, but what I worry about is the second Schengen country allowing him to layover on his way to Chi. Does anyone know where I can find the specific rule? It's a significant cost difference in flights.

Thanks!
