Best Answer

Assuming you do not apply for a reentry permit before you leave, the maximum stay is 1 year. If you apply for a reentry permit before you leave, the maximum stay is 2 years.

If you wish to stay longer than two years, you will need both a reentry permit and a returning resident visa. You must apply for the reentry permit before you depart the US. You don't necessarily need to receive it before you leave.

If you stay longer than 2 years, there is no guarantee you will be able to get a returning resident visa.

Note: your US green card may be taken away if your travel record suggests that you reside outside the US more than in the US. So, coming to the US for two weeks every 11 months will at some point result in cancellation of your green card and an inability to return to the US using the green card.

How long can a person travel with a green card?

You can travel within the US with a green card so long as it is valid. A green card is NOT a valid document for international travel outside the US.

Please check with the local embassy/consulate for the most up to date visa requirements for your country's passport prior to travel.

How long can a person with a 'greencard' stay outside the US without risking their legal status?

You can stay out of the US for up to 6 months with no consequence, as long as the person has a vaild green card and passport. Over 6 months contact with the US consulate is needed and the green card holder can stay out of the country for up to a year. Over a year the green card holder will forfeit their green card and not be allowed to re-enter the country. * The US permanent resident CAN stay out of the country for more than a year if they apply for and are granted a re-entry permit by USCIS prior to leaving the country. However, for a PR to become a citizen, he/she must have 5 years of continuous residency and staying abroad for more than a year will typically break it regardless of whether a re-entry permit is issued/used.
