Thread: Abandoned Green Card

  1. #1
    If a parent of a USC abandons his/her green card, can s/he get a visit visa B1/B2 on a later date if s/he wants to visit his/her child?

    yes, normal conditions for tourist visa apply.

    But can the consular officer still refuse the visa on (212 B) "Immigrant Intent" section?

    But will it not be funny to tell a person that you have an "immigrant intent", who already has surrendered, his/her green card?

    As I see it, it all depends on circumstences: why one returned GC?
    Maybe that person left the USA without a re-entry permit, and realized too late that he/she can't return after 13 months. All he/she can do is to return GC and go through the immigration process again. Visitor visa would make it faster to come to the USA again...
    Or, let's say we talk about the spouse of USC here, and USC still lives in the USA..
    It would be a different story if that ex-PR/USC couple lives together in foreign country, and wants to visit the USA..

    Thank you so much aneri, your attitude is very rational and your answers very logical. Please tell me if the PR returns the GC to the consulate before the one year expiry date, then what do you think? As a matter of fact a friend of mine wants to go back to his previous home (The country of his birth) but wants to come back every couple of years for a few weeks to visit his daughter. Also note that he had visited the US on a B1/B2 visa thrice before he got his GC. And he got his GC by consular processing not by adjustment of status, although he had a valid visitors visa even at the time of his consular processing.

    What do you think? Would you grant him a visitor visa?
