  8. Hi, I have a question. I am a green card holder and booked a one way ticket for my son’s graduation. I was going to book a flight 2 months before my 6 month only to find out that my passport was going to expire in 6 months. The travel agency I was booking at adviced me to renew first my passport so as not to have problems at the airport because of the rule of 6 months validity of passports. So I did but unfortunately due to this pandemic I had to apply online and wait to be scheduled for an appointment for passport renewal only to find out that the only open appointment reservation was the following month. I did but the problem was I still have’t recieved my new passport and I am approaching my 6th month stay. What should I do?

  10. If green card holders pay taxes like US citizens do they should have the same travel freedoms US citizens have! It's ridiculous to have travel limitations on green card holders when they're paying taxes too! That's a violation of freedom, And freedom is all what the US is about.

Will they be able to come back to the US on their green cards ? We would not like to go the SB1 way. Its a hassle. Any other options they have. Please let me know.

  13. Hi Abhisha,
    I'm a permanent resident(EB-1)and have been outside of the country since 2016 with reentry permit. The permit is valid until Jun 17th. I was supposed to come to the states next month to apply for reentry permit again however I don't feel safe traveling to the states with family including two kids.
    Here is my question,
    I visited to the states from Jan to Mar. Then I'll be able to enter the states within 6 month from the date of the departure in Mar? Or there would be a problem once my reentry permit expired on Jun 17th? Thank you for your repond in advance!
