How long can a resident alien stay outside the us?
As long as they want until they declare citizenship in anthour country
A permanent resident (resident alien) must live in Canada for two years out of every five or risk losing his status. The required 2 years (730 days) does include any time spent working abroad for a Canadian company, or traveling with a Canadian spouse, or abroad with a working Canadian spouse, or if under 22 traveling or living with Canadian parents.
How long a UK resident can stay abroad is up to the country the person is visiting. For example, a UK resident can stay in the United States 3 months without a visa, and longer with one. Some countries will only allow him to stay there two weeks, and many countries require the UK resident to obtain a visa before traveling. The visa will specify how long he may stay.
Yes they can. However it takes about 5 years to do so. During this period the person with the student visa has to either maintain a student visa and stay in school or adjust their visa if graduating for example. Usually sometime during this 5 year period the resident alien becomes a citizen and at that time the spouse holding the student visa can adjust to a permanent resident.
well, it depends what status you are living under. Like a permanent resident or on a visa. If you are a permanent resident then you can stay here as long as you stay out of trouble and renew your card when it expires. If you are using a visa, then you have to leave when your visa expires or apply for an extension.
Yes, but it will require the person to return to/wait inCanada for a spousal visa to become available. That should take about 2 1/2 years when married to a permanent resident. When marrying a permanent resident, you CANNOT stay inside the US while waiting for a spouse visa/green card during that time.
