How was your reentry into the US since you had trouble getting back in? Just curious how the new regulations on travel are affecting citizens who are working/studying abroad. (feel free to ignore if upsetting subject)
Hey buddy! So basically it’s not a new regulation it’s just not something that is widely known.
If you are a green card holder and plan on leaving the US for more than six months regardless of the reason they suggest getting a re entry permit.
If you are out for a year or more you NEED a re entry permit.
The permit is only valid two years so if you are out longer than two years you have to abandon your green card :/
I have had a green card for nine years and NO ONE told me this before, this NEEDS to be common knowledge for green card holders.
I just assumed I had the card and that was that, I was fine. Honestly it just makes me feel less and less welcome in the US.
