  6. My god i had no idea i am a US greencard holder who is in thr Philippines since june 2018 almost 9 months here, but returning on march 2nd 2019 so before 1 full year do i need reentry visa?

  7. It used to be alright for green card holders to travel outside the US for just a little less than six months. Note, times are changing. However, you had better notice that if you have in mind to become a citizen, then the more you keep travelling outside the US and staying for periods of times, the more you are portraying that your interest in this country is divided. You are neither here nor there. It is just common sense to exercise caution. During the interview of your prospective US citizenship, you may be asked why did you travel so often oribabky nit si directly, and then obviously if you travelled because you are business person or any other reason, you had better have your tax matters in order before presenting your case. There is no immigration law that states that you should not travel as a green card holder. But what impression are you creating everytime you appear at the arrivals, that your intetest is elsewhere. Guess what your time to see the door out of the US is looming at the corner.
    Just keep in good books.
    Do you renember the tale of hyena who was travelled walking. At one point he reached a place where the road had split into two. He wondered which road to follow. He decided to follow both ways. So he put two legs on one road and the other two on the other. as the gap between the two roads widened, guess what happened. His body split into parts and of course he died. You may not die but you will loose one country or the other. It is as simple as that.
