  • does 3/10 year bar apply to new LPR?

    hi,

    i was recently approved for LPR (oct 27,04) thru employement under 245i. my question is, i was out of status since 1989 and has not travel anywhere outside of US since i've entered US. my question is, now that i am LPR, does the 3/10 year bar apply to me if i want to travel back to my home country? do i need to get AP or reentry permit if i want to travel (probably a short 2 weeks visit)? pls advise. thanks!

      Congratulations Novellus

      You should not worry about 3/10 year bar anymore. Under 245(i) once permanent residence is obtained, these entry bars no longer apply.

      However, aliens subject to the bars with "pending AOS" (under 245i) should NOT leave the US as this will trigger these entry bars.

        Oh & regarding AP or re-entry permit, as long as you are planning a short trip (less than 1 year), you can travel freely. Here is some more info right from USCIS's website (http://uscis.gov/graphics/howdoi/PermRes.htm#travel):

        International Travel
        A Permanent Resident of the United States can travel freely outside of the US. A passport from the country of citizenship is normally all that is needed. To reenter the US a Permanent Resident normally needs to present the green card (Permanent Resident Card, Form I-551) for readmission. A reentry permit is needed for reentry for trips greater than one year but less than two years in duration.
