Greencard For Family and Out of USA stay

Recommended Posts


    My parents recently got greencard. They went to India on AP and they received GC.


1. How long they can be in INDIA before they need to come back to US for 6 months manditory stay in US?

2. Will the 6 Months count start the day they got GC or the day they use it @ POE to USA?

3. If we need to get any temporary extension if they can't make it US for they minimum 6 months stay this year, how soon they need to get the approval


any insight into this is deeply approcated

There is no such thing as "6 month mandatory stay."

Permanent residents have to live in the US. Any travel abroad has to be temporary in nature. It is NOT and has NEVER been enough to live abroad and just visit the US once in a while.

If they don't want to make the US their home, they should give up the GC.
