Reentry Permit

Hello - I would like to know about Rentry Permits. If a person is on a green card, I have heard there is an option of filing for a Reentry Permit, that is valid up to 2 years. With an approved permit, a green card holder is supposedly allowed to be outside the country for up to 2 years and still come back without having the GC status revoked? Is that the case, if yes, is there a limit to how many times an applicant is allowed to file for the Reentry Permit? Is it only once or twice, in the 10 year GC period?

You already know the answer to your first question considering your other thread about your relative who has a re-entry permit and whose N-400 petition was recently denied due to break in continued residency.

One may be able to get a re-entry permit up to 3 times (2 years each for the first two, and 1 year for the last one) - but of course it’s never guaranteed.
