SB-1 Returning Resident Visa Guide
Many permanent residents and conditional residents leave America for a variety of reasons. Common reasons include work, spending time with relatives, and vacations. These permanent residents (LPRs) and conditional residents (CR) need to be careful how long they stay outside the United States. If they stay more than a year or beyond their re-entry permit validity period, they will need to obtain a new immigrant visit in order to return.
