I've read the many threads related to the reentry permit however, there are a few issues I still haven't clarified. I have been in the US for 10+ years with H1B and my wife and I now have GCs for 1+ year and our baby is a US citizen. We're currently in the US.
- If we leave the country after submitting the I131 forms, do they schedule a separate appointment for biometrics? What does that entail and where is it done? Is it different from the fingerprints and photo taken at the POE?
- We are not abandoning our residency. I'll leave my savings/checking/credit accounts as well as 401K here. Would these be sufficient proofs in case our intentions are questioned in the future?
- What is considered a valid reason to apply for a reentry permit? Can it be a personal/family reason? Is there a catogarization for "reasonable" reasons?
I would appreciate any input.
Thanks in advance...
