After CR1: frequency of travel, other places that need visa?

3 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

Congrats to everyone that has been approved! Woo hoo!!

Now, I have a few questions:

After obtaining the CR1 (if the couple lives abroad), the process is not completed until the last steps are done at POE. I've read somewhere that one has to keep his/her days outside the US to a minimal, however, for me, that will not be the case.

Q1: I will still need to travel back to the US every six months (after first POE): true or false? Any number of days required per visit?

Q2: After receiving the green card, will I still be required to apply for visas (e.g. UK tourist visa, I used to need one)? Similarly, will I now need to obtain a visa to enter Brazil, whereas Philippine passport holders normally don't?

Q3: Any restrictions on travels (destinations, i.e. Cuba, etc) while on CR1 ?

Thanks in advance!

F,

Q1: False and 0. What you need to do is maintain your primary place of residence, which you do not intend to abandon, in the USA. There is a page on the USCIS web site dealing with how to avoid losing LPR status.

Q2: After receiveing the green card you will still be a Philippine passport holder. The green card may cut you some slack in some countries. Most airlines have a page on their website where you can find the visa requirements for destination countries based on your nationality and US immigration status.
