    Unexpired re-entry permit, traveling back to US, applying for second re-entry permit

    Got it! So the number of REPs doesn't have to be consecutive. One could apply for 1st REP, stay out of US for 2 years, travel to the US, live here for 1-2 years, and if need arises, could apply for a second REP and it would most likely be granted and would not be a problem. Am I following this...

    Unexpired re-entry permit, traveling back to US, applying for second re-entry permit

    No, the LPR didn't volunteer that he/she is planning to apply for a second re-entry permit. I understand your point, anything said at the immigration counter needs to be weighed before it's said! I personally wouldn't say a word unless asked specifically about something and even then I would be...

    Unexpired re-entry permit, traveling back to US, applying for second re-entry permit

    Thank you @SusieQQQ! I understand the premise of approved re-entry permit. What I'm trying to figure out is how does this play out when applying for subsequent re-entry permits? How many can one apply in a life time? Theoretically speaking, could one keep applying for 3 re-entry permits in a row...

    Unexpired re-entry permit, traveling back to US, applying for second re-entry permit

    Thank you @Fin! for your reply. So looks like it's immaterial if there's no gap between two applications or if there's a little (few days to few months) May I ask about applying for a second re-entry permit? Did you enter a simple/short reason for requesting it ..something like "personal" or...

    Unexpired re-entry permit, traveling back to US, applying for second re-entry permit

    LPR travelled on the first re entry permit before its expiry. Now does LPR need to stay in US for a certain amount before applying for a second re-entry permit? Does it matter if LPR applies for a second re-entry permit say within 3 months of arriving on the first re-entry permit vs 6 months or...

    LPR returning on unexpired reentry permit, what questions could be asked at port of entry?

    Thank you for your reply! Got it. I have personally never travelled on re-entry permit so wasn't sure what to expect in such a scenario. The only thing that's a little different from LPR's first-ever visit to US on an immigrant visa and this time is the location. For example, first time port of...

    Requesting immigration records from USCIS

    Hello All, Has anyone requested their immigration records from USCIS by filing FOIA request? I'm thinking of requesting mine to get copied of some documents that I may have submitted in support of my applications and need copies as I don't have the original document anymore? Is it safe to...

    Is an LPR required to inform USCIS of change of address?

    Elderly parent received their RP before leaving the US. After they left, their son in US moved to a new address. Someone else lives at the previous address in US that was used to apply and receive RP. The previous address is a rental apartment. Should the elderly parent who is now overseas...

    Unexpired re-entry permit, traveling back to US, applying for second re-entry permit

    Thank you cafeconleche! Did you apply consecutively for two RPs? In other words, did you stay out for 2 years, travelled back to US and right away applied for the second RP? Yeah I hear ya, it can be very stressful especially when you are overseas and need this kind of stuff corrected. Glad to...

    Unexpired re-entry permit, traveling back to US, applying for second re-entry permit

    I know the thread title is ambitious but so it begins. Apparently one can apply for as many re-rentry permits (REP) as one wants. There's no legal upper limit except the duration of validity would go down from 2 years to 1 year if one lives for 4 or more years since receiving LPR status or in...
