Case Introduction
Case No. IG-030
I-131 Re-entry Permit
Brief Introduction

A lawful permanent resident (LPR) normally may travel outside the United States and return; however, there are some limitations. A reentry permit can help prevent two types of problems:
1. Your Permanent Resident Card became technically invalid for re-entry into the U.S. if you are absent from the U.S. for 1 year or more;
2. Your U.S. permanent residence being considered as abandoned for taking up residence in another country more than 1 year.
A re-entry permit establishes a presumption that you did not abandon status, and it allows you to apply for admission to the U.S. after traveling abroad for up to 2 years, without having to obtain a returning resident visa. Reentry permits are normally valid for 2 years from the date of issuance.
