Stay length for green card holder

Recommended Posts


My mom has green card but he usually comes to US only once in a year and stay for 1 or 2 months and go back home. I heard about new rule that they have to stay for 6 months or longer. Can any body pl let me know what's the rule there.

Would really appreciate your kind response.

The rule has always been that GC holders make their home here and stay here for a majority of the time and pay taxes on worldwide income subject to tax treaties. Either she needs to come and stay here with short visits of say 3 months an year abroad or she needs to withdraw her GC and apply for a tourist visa for which a lawyer will be useful. One of her coming visits will result in revocation of her Gc and you might as weel think about it now.

That is not a new rule, but was always the case.

A Permanent Resident has to live in the US, the US *is* the home. It is NOT and has NEVER been enough just to visit the US once in a while.
