Clients who hold green card holders (ie permanent residents) frequently ask questions about issues they need to know when traveling abroad outside of the United States
. Here are some things that need to be considered to minimize potential problems at the border. After a long intercontinental flight, no one wants the CBP officials to make lengthy inquiries at the airport. Especially in cases where the Green Card holder has a significant time (typically 6 months, typically) outside the US, potential pitfalls that need to know – or lose the highly-valued green card. CBP, interestingly, in its Operations Manual provides good guidance on how immigration inspectors are examining the people who are seeking green card retention to the United States. Entrance, in general The CBP official declares that a non-resident is staying in a stateless place unless otherwise unacceptable, showing a non-completed Green Card (I-551), a return permit, an asylum travel document ) or provisional LPR status, eg. Travel Statmp (or ADIT stamp).
A resident foreign resident is not required to enforce a valid passport to return to the United States, although most of them have a passport, as they often need passports to enter the foreign country. When presented, the passport is usually marked "ARC" and the "A" number of the foreigner must be indicated on the page with the entry stamp.
Recruiting after extended absences more than a year ago outside the United States (two if you have a redemption license), CBP sees you may have left your home. Other indicators of the abandonment of the stay are as follows:
(1) work abroad,
(2) with immediate family members who are not permanent residents, (4) missing title States or
(5) frequent reassurance from the United States.
In case of doubt, it is appropriate for CBP to request other proofs of residence attestation, such as driving licenses and employer ID cards
Green Card Green Card Non-Registered Stateless Residents (LPR) since they were home or in the safe to obtain CBP free access to the visa free of charge or postpone the check on another CBP local office, which is the home of the US resident.
If the LPR claims that the card has been lost or stolen, the POE may accept I-90 to exchange a permanent resident card for a fee. These measures may be taken into account when LPR's identity has been confirmed, preferably against the data contained in the CBP computer systems.
LPR requesting visa waiver must fill in I-193. or passport, unless otherwise acceptable. The applicant applying for the exemption may check the information recorded in the printed form with accuracy and marking. If the exemption has been approved, the LPR must receive a copy of Form I-193 and be refunded. If the waiver is denied, the applicant may be taken into a detention proceeding before an immigration judge.
CBP officers may also use the term "deferred control". This is usually limited to a green card or visa holder who: o will be able to produce the required document within a few days; or
o lost or stolen the I-551 document at the time of the original investigation I-90. form and has not been postponed until I-551. .

Conditional Residents Conditional residents are generally accepted by the United States if they apply it before the second anniversary of conditional residence. A conditional resident is also eligible if a consignment from the United States consigns a boarding pass (or "delivery note") abroad to a foreign country or a spouse or child of a foreign citizen. Otherwise, applicants for conditional residence in the United States in the 90s submitted a joint application or a request for waiver of I-751 (I-829) or I-829. Forms (investment cases), days before the second anniversary, but not more than six months before the application for registration.
After I-751 has been submitted, the applicant receives notice of receipt from the USCIS (I-797 Action Notice), extending the conditional

If the applicant can not be accepted, CBP is authorized to place him in the removal procedure. The issue of meaningful departure When examining a holder of a green card who has spent a great deal of time abroad six months) when a question arises about LPR leaving the United States, the CBP inspector must evaluate the situation and define the intention of LPR and the nature and causes of the absence of a longer absence from the United States. Prior to 1997, when he was legally resident, it appears to be unacceptable, immigration inspectors first have to determine whether his absence has a "persistent" meaningful interruption. Subsequent amendments to immigration laws formalized a "test" for immigration inspectors to apply this situation. In this study, a lawful habitual residence can not be considered a claim, unless the alien:
o ceased or waived this status;
was not present for more than 180 days;
o has been abducted after leaving the United States,
o has withdrawn during the appeal procedure,
o committed certain offenses,
o unannounced access; or
entered the United States without the permission of an immigration officer.
If CBP believes LPR is unacceptable or legally not legally resident, CBP refers to the removal procedure for the alien, it is not appropriate.
