The Re-entry costs lots. Can a lawful permanent resident take the US property deed and filing of US tax returns instead of re-entry permit to enter the US after traveling abroad more than one year or the re-entry permit is required by law for the LPR to reenter the US? Thank you for your answer.
Don't leave your US home without a re-entry permit if leaving the US for one year or more.
If really you think "Re-entry costs lots", then I hope you will never have to see "how much" (both time and money) of reapplying for Lawful US Permanent Residency Status ("LPR") will cost you.. If you will again be eligible to reapply for "green card status" after losing it, that is.. Kindly note that after an absence of 1 year from the US, without a valid "Reentry Permit" one automatically "loses" his/her LPR status, by "operation of law", with that shiny new "green card" having been automatically "cancelled", and it's not your "US property deed" and/or "filing of US tax returns" that is going to save you.. Conclusion: bring yourself to spending a few fistful of dollars on a RP now, rather than risk up to $10,000? later (and lose years?) in trying to obtain LPR status again.
