What happens if I travel abroad before applying for a Re Entry Permit?

Follow

If you are a permanent resident planning to travel outside of the United States for one year or more, it is important that you apply for a Re Entry Permit before leaving the United States.

If you stay outside of the United States for one year or more and did not apply for a Re Entry Permit before you left, you may be considered to have abandoned your permanent resident status. If this happens, you may be referred to appear before an immigration judge to decide whether or not you have abandoned your status.

If you are in this situation, contact the U.S. consulate about a returning resident visa.
