Hello there,

My dad has permanent residency and he applied for PR FOR me in 2006. Anyway I recently got my invoice no and have made payments. My father travelled back and forth to USA and NEPAL during the past 7 years. He got a "white passport" last year and has been in Nepal for over a year. Apparently with a white passport you can enter USA after two years without getting your PR cancelled.

As my case is in process, I was wondering if my dad should go back to USA or is it ok if he stays in Nepal? During interview, if petitioner is in my country he has to go for the interview as well. What should we do?

I am not sure what a white passport is, do you mean a re-entry permit?

The petitioner- your dad- must be resident in the USA at the time of the interview, He could be in Nepal, but needs to show he will move back to the US with you, because the visa is for family re-unification, and that wouldn't happen if he stays in Nepal.
