  • Reentry Permit.

    Hi,

    I am a DV2006 winner and I am planning to enter US on my green card just to activate it. How long is the minimum period of time I need to stay in order to keep my GC. Also, I need to return to my country of origin and stay there to take care of my old father for about an year or two. Can I apply for reentry permit and if I can how does it work. Will I have time to do it since I am staying only for a short time in USA before I go back?

    Any help is greately appreciated.

    Thanks

      Hi Dido,

      you can apply for a re-entry permit the day you enter the US (providing you get some evidence of your new permanent resident status at POE - a I-515 stamp) or when you receive green card. You can ask on the form for a re-entry permit to be sent to the US embassy in your country. The embassy will contact you when they receive it.

      How smart is that? Don't know. In your situation, I would try to establish some ties with the US before leaving: get SSN, open bank account...
