Long term travel with green card


Recommended Posts

Me and my husband got green cards 6 years ago through my husband employer. Now I got an expat opportunity to move to India for 1 yr. I have an own house in US and also I will be paying taxes in US as I will get paid in US. Can someone help me understand if it is ok to travel for a year with multiple US visits?


are there ways to maintain my permanent residency while in India. I couldn't apply for citizenship as it takes too long for the interview appointments right now.

You did check out Reentry permit?  But that resets your Naturalization time frames.

In these days of shock and awe , I suggest doing everything possible to become a citizen. Naturalization is a frame of mind. You can certainly apply and return for the FP and also the Interview as long as you fulfill the requirements.

If you maintain a residence here, pay taxes local and federal then the way to go is possibly applying for Naturalization and planning your India trip around the FP, Interview etc.
