  • LPR working overseas

    Wondering if there are any adverse immigration effects or consequences to a lawful permanent resident (Turkish citizen) and his LPR wife if he leaves US now to work for a branch of his company in the UK for more than 6 months? thanks for thoughts.

        as Harrison says, you need to apply for re-entry permit before you leave (and get fingerprinted)(form I-131, valid for 2 years). Second, make sure you keep the domicile/residency in the USA (open bank accounts, file taxes, driver's licence, have mailing address...)...

        Prolonged absence may or may not have effect on applying for citizenship... depending on whether you'll be able to get N-470 (Application to preserve residency for naturalization purpose) approved.

          If you spend six months or more outside of the U.S. that is considered an abandonment of your residency. If a year or more, your status is invalidated and you need an SB-1 Immigrant visa. If you want to stay outside of the U.S. more than six months, you need to obtain a Re-Entry Permit from USCIS.
