    A re-entry permit is only useful if he is maintaing US Residency, its not a golden bullet.

    To be a US PR you have to have the US as your residency, pay Taxes etc etc.

    You can theoretically lose it in a day, or keep it for many years whilst being outside the US.

    Each case is very specific, not many Immigration Lawyers are fully up to speed on this. It is fairly easy to say where both ends are, difficult to say where the crossover is.

    There are 194 or so countries in the world, USA is just one of them.

    a window, counter, room or seperate line... I meant to say that, in some countries, it hapens often enough that a PR abandons GC for the consulates to designate a "space" for that purpose.

    When you decide you no longer want to be PR in USA, you go to the consulate, fill out the form and return your GC.

    GC is to live in the USA. Visitor visa is to visit. Can you do both at the same time? As I see it, one is either living in the USA or visiting the USA... can do both at the same time.

    In one way, by applying for a visitor (tourist) visa, you are saying you are not living and have no intention of living in the USA. That would mean you are abandoning your GC at that time.

    Aneri , what is the window for returning GC? do you have any idea what is the use of it? can a GC holder qualify to apply for a visit visa?

    Yes, aneri, I agree with you, there is really that section. My statement was just very sweeping, though it wasn't meant to be. I supposedly meant that GC holders like the OP who want to surrender their cards are very, very few especially if she's from the Philippines.

    One celebrated case there of doing so was the Paredes family. It was in 1986. I was very young then, so I just heard and read it to have happened. The family now live in Australia.

    You can always apply and see if you get one. If you do, at least you'll have an option and some time (2 years) to see how the things develop in your home contry... If and when you know that for sure you wan't be coming back, you can always surender Re-entry permit and GC at the local ambassy and ask for tourist visa instead.

    "Many people?" make it "few people" to be more accurate and realistic. And say that most of these few did not "voluntarily abandon" their green cards.

    If you abandon your GC Status you can apply for a Visitors Visa.

    Imposible to say whether you would get one, depends on your individual circumstances. </div></BLOCKQUOTE>



    ... and impossible to imagine that anyone would ever do that.

    Althea, what you're feeling now is just temporary. Give yourself a chance to imbibe your actual situation. Look beyond yourself.

    I'm telling you, lots and lots of people are doing everything just to attain the exact same stage that you're at now. </div></BLOCKQUOTE>

    Why?

    I have come across many people who have done this.

    And have subsequently visited the US.

    Actually I thought I might be in a similar position a year ago, might still happen.

    As they say, everyday is a new day, and what a way to start it this Thursday morning!

    You don't want any obligation from the US government that you stay here for a long time, just to keep your status; instead you want to stay where you want, give it up, and apply for a tourist visa? Wow!

    The US government doesn't have any obligation to abide by your own life pattern.

    Okay, give up your permanent residency, the sooner the better, and apply for a tourist visa once you're back to your country.

    But please, get back to us and give us the update after three months. We'll be waiting.
