Reentry Permit Guide: Everything to Know to Get Your Reentry Permit

Reentry Permit

 

If you are a United States lawful permanent resident (green card holder), you have the right to live in the U.S. and travel freely outside of the U.S. However, certain types of travel can put your green card at risk. That is why if you are planning to travel outside of the U.S. for longer than 6 months, you should strongly consider applying for a reentry permit. A reentry permit is a travel document (similar to a passport) which helps protect your status as a lawful permanent resident.

 

In this guide, I will discuss what you need to know to get your reentry permit.

 

If you have any questions, feel free to email me directly at Michael@AshooriLaw.com. I would be happy to answer your questions and to help you apply for your reentry permit.

1. General Overview of the Reentry Permit

 

A reentry permit is a travel document (similar to a passport) which allows U.S. lawful permanent residents to reenter the United States after extended periods of time spent outside of the United States. The reentry permit creates a legal presumption that a lawful permanent resident did not intend to abandon their status, despite being outside of the United States for an extended period.

 

As a U.S. lawful permanent resident, you can typically travel in and out of the United States without any issues. When returning to the U.S., in most cases, you would use your Form I-551 (Green Card) to re-enter the United States. However, if you’re traveling outside of the U.S. for a year or longer, your Green Card can no longer be used to re-enter the United States. You will either need a valid reentry permit to reenter the United States, or alternatively, you will need to apply for a returning resident visa (SB-1).

 

To understand these concept, lets first discuss some of the rights and obligations of U.S. lawful permanent residents.

 

Rights and Obligations of United States Lawful Permanent Residents

 

  • As a lawful permanent resident, you have several rights, including the right to permanently live and work in the USA.

 

  • Your status as a lawful permanent resident must be maintained.

 

  • Failure to maintain your lawful permanent resident status may result in your status being abandoned.

 

  • One way to potentially abandon your lawful permanent resident status is through extended periods of travel abroad.

 

Issues for Lawful Permanent Residents When Traveling Outside of the United States

 

  • As a lawful permanent resident, you are permitted to travel in and out of the United States.

 

  • However, depending on how long you are outside of the United States, you may face certain consequences with respect to your status.

 

  • Travel abroad for 6 months or less:

    • If your travel abroad is for 6 months or less (180 days or less), you should typically have no issues when returning to the U.S.
    • Upon your return to the U.S., you are not treated as someone who is seeking admission into the United States.
    • You are not required to prove that you have been maintaining your status as a lawful permanent resident.
    • You can use your Form I-551 (Green Card) to re-enter the United States.

 

  • Travel abroad for 6 months to a year:

    • If your travel abroad is for more than 180 days but less than a year, you may be subject to inspection upon return to the United States.
    • You may be asked to prove that you’ve been maintaining your status as a lawful permanent resident.
    • You can use your Form I-551 (Green Card) to re-enter the United States.

 

  • Travel abroad for a year or longer:

    • If your travel abroad is for a year or longer, upon return to the United States, you must prove that you’ve maintained your status as a lawful permanent resident.
    • Your Form I-551 (Green Card) cannot be used to re-enter the United States.
    • You will either need a valid reentry permit to enter the U.S., or you will need to apply for a returning resident visa (SB-1).

 

What Does a Reentry Permit Do?

 

  • With a valid reentry permit, you can reenter the United States after staying outside of the U.S. for up to 2 years without having to get a returning resident visa.

 

  • With a valid reentry permit, there is a legal presumption that you intended to maintain your status as a lawful permanent resident despite lengthy trips outside of the country.

 

 

What is a Returning Resident Visa?

 

If you are a lawful permanent resident, and you travel outside of the United States for a year or longer without having a valid reentry permit, you will need to apply for a returning resident visa, to reenter the United States. Your green card cannot be used to reenter the country.

 

To get a returning resident visa you need to prove that:

 

  • You were a lawful permanent resident when you left the United States.

 

  • When you left the United States, you intended to return to the United States.

 

  • During your trip outside of the U.S., you maintained your intention to return to the USA.

 

  • Your extended stay outside of the country was for reasons outside of your control.

 

Important Note Regarding Reentry Permits:

 

A reentry permit creates a legal presumption that you did not intend to abandon your status as a lawful permanent resident. The government may overcome this presumption by providing “clear, unequivocal, and convincing evidence” to the contrary. So just because you have a reentry permit does not mean that you are guaranteed to maintain your status as a lawful permanent resident.

 

Now that we’ve discussed some basic concepts, lets discuss the benefits of a reentry permit.

 

2. Benefits of a Reentry Permit

 

  • Travel: With a reentry permit, you can leave the United States for extended periods and reenter the country without getting a returning resident visa.

 

  • Maintain Status: With a reentry permit, there is a presumption that you did not intend to abandon your status, despite extended periods spent outside of the United States.

 

  • Travel Document: If you are unable to get a passport from your home country, a reentry permit may function similar to a passport.

 

  • If you plan to visit a country that will not honor the passport of your home country, you can use the reentry permit as a travel document similar to a passport.

 

3. Situations Where You May Need a Reentry Permit

 

Here are some common scenarios where a lawful permanent resident can benefit from having a reentry permit:

 

  • If you plan to stay outside of the United States for a year or longer. A reentry permit can be used to enter the US without a returning resident visa.

 

  • If you spend a lot of time outside of the United States. Even if you do not stay abroad for a year or longer, spending extensive time outside of the USA may be questioned at the border. Your reentry permit will create a presumption that you did not intend to abandon your status.

 

  • If you cannot get a passport from your home country. A reentry permit can work as a travel document (similar to a passport) allowing you to travel.

 

4. Requirements to Get a Reentry Permit

 

Here are the main requirements to get a reentry permit:

 

  • You must be either a lawful permanent resident or a conditional lawful permanent resident.

 

  • You must intend to depart the United States temporarily.

 

  • You must file a Form I-131 and provide all necessary supporting documentation.

 

  • Your application for the reentry permit must be filed while you are in the United States.

 

  • You must complete the required biometrics (digital fingerprint and digital photo) in the United States.

 

5. How to Apply for a Reentry Permit

 

Here is a step-by-step breakdown of how to apply for a reentry permit:

 

i. Hire an Immigration Lawyer

ii. File Form I-131

iii. Complete Biometrics

 

i. Hire an Immigration Lawyer

 

The first step you should take to get your reentry permit is to hire an immigration lawyer. While you are not required to have an immigration lawyer file your application for a reentry permit, working with an immigration lawyer has many benefits.

 

Your immigration lawyer will review and analyze your situation to determine whether a reentry permit is the right option for you. Through this process, you may find out that a reentry permit is not appropriate for your situation or that an alternative course of action is more appropriate.

 

Your immigration lawyer will also plan and develop a strategy regarding the timeline for when everything should take place. With reentry permits, timing is critical. You are required to be present in the United States during certain key phases of your reentry permit application. Your immigration lawyer will work with you to create a course of action that works for you based on your travel needs.

 

If you have any questions about your specific situation, feel free to email me at Michael@AshooriLaw.com. I’d be happy to answer your questions.

 

ii. File Form I-131

 

Once it is determined that a reentry permit is the correct option for you based on your situation, the next step is to prepare and file the Form I-131. The Form I-131 is also called the “Application for Travel Document.” This is the form used to apply for a reentry permit. This form must be filed while you are in the United States.

 

You should be careful to submit all necessary supporting documents along with the Form I-131.

 

iii. Complete Biometrics

 

After you file your Form I-131, USCIS will require you to complete biometrics. At the biometrics appointment, your fingerprints are taken digitally.

 

Your biometrics must be taken inside of the United States. In very limited circumstances, there are exceptions where someone can attend their biometrics appointment outside of the United States.

 

6. Documents Needed to Apply for a Reentry Permit

 

To qualify for a reentry permit, you must submit multiple documents along with your Form I-131. The documents you need to submit will depend on the facts of your particular case. Please contact me directly at Michael@AshooriLaw.com to discuss your case with you.

 

7. How Long is a Reentry Permit Valid for?

 

  • A reentry permit is typically valid for 2 years from the date it is issued. However, in certain situations, a reentry permit is valid for less than 2 years.

 

  • Conditional lawful permanent residents: If you are a conditional lawful permanent resident, your reentry permit cannot extend past the date your conditional lawful permanent residency will expire. So in this case, your reentry permit may be valid for less than 2 years.

 

  • Lawful permanent residents who have spent considerable time outside of the US: if since becoming a lawful permanent resident, or during the last 5 years (whichever is shorter), you have been outside of the USA for more than 4 years total, your reentry permit is limited to 1 year. There are limited exceptions to this rule.

 

8. Conclusion

 

If you are a lawful permanent resident and are planning to travel outside of the United States for a year or longer, you will likely need to get a reentry permit. With a valid reentry permit, you can stay outside of the United States for up to 2 years without abandoning your status as a lawful permanent resident. A reentry permit can also be used to reenter the US after absences of a year or longer, without the need for a reentry permit.

 

If you have any questions about the reentry permit, or if you need help getting your reentry permit, email me directly at Michael@AshooriLaw.com. I’d be happy to answer your questions.

Michael is a professional and dependable Lawyer. He knows what to do. I found him online. He was very patient with answering all my questions. He used to reply to my emails quickly and even on weekends. Before I got in touch with Michael, I called many immigration lawyers but they made things complicated and difficult. I was confused but Michael made the process clear and easy to understand. I'm glad I have chosen Michael's service. It's very easy to work with him. My family was very happy because they were able to attend the biometric appointment within 5 weeks and before their flight back to Morocco as Mikael promised. I would highly recommend this service for other people. Definitely I will use his service again!read more

I sought out Michael online and thought I was taking a chance with a unknown law firm. To my pleasant surprise, Michael offered a quick intro call to introduce his services and the re=entry permit application process. He was open and honest and was very transparent with his service fees. I simply filled out an application and had Michael submit it on my behalf.. The scheduled biometric appointment went smoothly and 3 months later my re-entry permit was approved. I would highly recommend Michael for this service as it was hassle free and cost effective vs trying to do it on your own.read more

I had a great experience working with Michael. Eventually I found his details via google search and after having a quick phone call, I decided to go ahead with him in order to apply for my parents reentry permit applications. Working with him was pretty straight forward and easy going. I live in New jersey and he is based of California, but I never felt that distance was an issue. I pretty much sent all the required documents via email and/or post. I could call/message him if I had any doubts and he would get back to me immediately. Our process was successful and eventually we did receive the Reentry permits in the time line that he had given. I would recommend his services to anyone who wants to apply for Reentry permits or any other immigration services.read more

Mr. Michael Ashoori represented me to apply re-entry visa. It was my first time to look for a lawyer on the internet and he happens to be at a different time zone.The reason why I did that because my local lawyer who used to represent me in the past didn’t response to my email for more than 2 weeks. After several trials, I was forced to look for someone to help me.Honestly, I was a bit worried at the beginning. But after sending the first email request to Mr. Michael, I got a phone call and an email from him in less than 12 hours. After that, every time when I had a question, Michael always have a response in 24 hours. And all my questions always get answered immediately. I have never needed to ask the same question twice before getting an answer from him.After the biometric appointment, that waiting period felt like forever. But because of Michael’s professionalism, I had a peace of mind. I know that once he finds out the status, he will let me know right away.I highly recommend if anyone needs any professional help in immigration, Mr. Michael Ashoori is the person to go to.As always, Michael, thank you very much for your help.read more

I was researching about how to complete an I131 travel document for my wife online and hands down the best explanation on how to do so was written by Michael Ashoori. I felt my case wasn’t clear-cut and I didn’t want to take any chances doing it myself so I reached out to Michael and to my surprise he wrote me back that same day. I also thought his price was reasonable, especially in comparison to other lawyers in my area. He has always answered my emails quickly and most importantly my wife’s travel document was approved just as he said it would be in the timeframe he presented to us in he beginning. If you’re someone who is looking for a professional, timely, and easily accessible immigration lawyer to help you or your spouse with immigration matters, I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend Michael Ashoori as your attorney.read more

If you want a world-class, take-you-by-the-hand service (and results), search no more…And let me explain real quick the 3 reasons why I say this about Ashoori Law:1. Clarity. At first, I wasn’t even sure if the service was the right fit for me. Heck, I didn’t even have the slightest idea of how the whole Visa process worked… NOT a problem.Michael had me on a call where he took his time to explain in detail everything I needed to know about how the process worked, my eligibility for the Visa, and every other question I had that I threw at him.BIG Bonus for me: there were some questions Michael didn’t have the answer to right there and then and he simply took some time to research and got back to me later on with the answers… instead of just coming up with BS (like some do).2. Communication. NEVER did I have a single call or email I didn’t receive a response to in less than 24 hours.You don’t want someone you have to be constantly chasing working on your case, do you?I can’t even imagine how frustrating that would be…With Michael, communication was ALWAYS clear and fast, just as you would expect from an expert.3. Certainty. There was absolutely no point during the process where I felt an ounce of doubt about whether I was doing the right thing or not.You know those buying decisions you start regretting the second after the purchase is made? Know that feeling?Well, this is not one of them.Michael and his team are so knowledgeable in their field that they have fool-proof systems in place that help you complete your paperwork and applications quickly and with ease.Since our first interaction, I felt I was dealing with people who knew their stuff.And those are the reasons why I feel comfortable recommending Ashoori Law…They took care of me as a mother takes care of her newborn.Thank you, Michael!read more

I found out about Michael Ashoori Law Firm through the internet, when I started looking for advice regarding US Immigration Law. It called my attention that in its official website it was posted important, comprehensive information on different matters, and it invites customers to ask for direct responses. I decided to write a couple of emails about my personal situation, immediately responded by Michael at no cost. After having received those responses, I asked Michael for a quotation of legal services, which I compared to three more. In the end, I decided to hire Michael because his offer inspired me to trust and it was very competitive, and I definitely made the right choice. Michael was quite diligent when analyzing my case, filed the petition quickly and kept me posted about its evolution. My case was resolved favorably! That is why I have no hesitation in recommending Michael´ services for US Immigration Law. Maria Misleread more

After being fed up with the lack of expertise and lack of ease of communication at the previous law office I was handling my case, I have come to know Michael when I googled "Best Immigration Law in my area". I can guarantee you, Google wasn't misleading this time. Michael gave me a definite answer to my question and assured me that my case is possible, a question where previously I wasn't able to get an answer more than a "Maybe". And he delivered what he assured me. I am sure many lawyers also deliver, however, I am also sure that no lawyer is as easily accessible as Michael. I have never seen a lawyer who promptly responds to client messages at 11:30 pm. This guy is a pioneer in a Client-Attorney communication style. He re-invented the way how easily clients can call, text, email, and easily reach out their lawyer at any time to get a quick response. A business style other law firms should encourage applying.read more

Like any foreign investor to make his dream come ture, I was looking for the best yet the most-affordable Lawyer with E2 specialization to ensure the visa approval at the very 1st attempt. Not being satisfied with local legal firms especially for E2 Visa, we were referred to MICHAEL ASHOORI; known to be a Subject Matter Expert in E2. Our whole relation with Michael was over the phone but we NEVER felt at-distance due to his professional communication and collaboration skills. We were really impressed with his subject-related knowledge and his exceptional approach.At very 1st engagement with him over the phone,he walked us step-by-step through the standard process for E2 submission and answered all of our questions till our full satisfaction. Upon his analysis of our case, he customized his approach as per our legal situation and reccommended us the best fit-solution for our investment goals. He made the preparation of business/invetment documentation super-easy for me by providing the customized and easy-to-use templates. Him and his team frequently reviewed our documents and provided professional assistance to make appropriate enhancments as needed per USCIS standards. I have never experienced anyone as prompt professional towards his clients as he was. No matter, what time (business/after-business hours) I called him, received immediate & welcoming response. Michael kept me posted with status updates till I received Approval Notice from USCIS :)I am Glad MICHAEL represented me for my case. I WOULD RECCOMMEND MICHAEL TO ANYONE WHO WANTS SUCCESS IN E2 VISA APPROVAL AT THE VERY 1ST ATTEMPT.read more
