A lawful permanent resident is planning to go abroad to take care of her parent. She probably will stay outside of the USA for more than one year. What are the necessary proof should she take with her besides of the reentry permit? Thank you for your answer.
The re- entry permit will be required for an absence from the U.S. of longer than 6 months. A valid passport and the resident card should be taken abroad with the re- entry permit.
A re-entry permit (after approval) will allow the LPR to remain abroad for two years. Keep in mind that you will not be able to timely naturalize because of the break in continuous residence.
You should bring your green card and your passport, of course. While you're abroad, you should keep significant ties in the U.S., if possible - bank accounts, residence, auto, and you should file your tax returns. A re-entry permit will make it easier for you to return to the United States but you should do everything possible not to abandon your residence in the U.S.
The re-entry permit will allow the person to stay outside the US for up to 2 years. One should maintain their ties to the US of course. Bank accounts , keeping property if applicable, etc.
