绿卡回国工作5个月以上有问题吗?

我知道政策是离境不能超过六个月(180天),也有人说接近六个月就比较危险了?已经在国内三个月了,不知道要早点回来吗。

我听说的是如果要入籍,那需要遵守这个离境不超过六个月,如果不入籍的话没那么重要。具体还是咨询律师比较靠谱吧。

Does travel outside the United States affect my permanent resident status?
Permanent residents are free to travel outside the United States, and temporary or brief travel usually does not affect your permanent resident status. If it is determined, however, that you did not intend to make the United States your permanent home, you will be found to have abandoned your permanent resident status. A general guide used is whether you have been absent from the United States for more than a year. Abandonment may be found to occur in trips of less than a year where it is believed you did not intend to make the United States your permanent residence. While brief trips abroad generally are not problematic, the officer may consider criteria such as whether your intention was to visit abroad only temporarily, whether you maintained U.S. family and community ties, maintained U.S employment, filed U.S. income taxes as a resident, or otherwise established your intention to return to the United States as your permanent home. Other factors that may be considered include whether you maintained a U.S. mailing address, kept U.S. bank accounts and a valid U.S. driver’s license, own property or run a business in the United States, or any other evidence that supports the temporary nature of your absence.

没有法律明文规定离开N天就“一定会”revoke绿卡,或者离开不超过N天就“一定不会”revoke绿卡,一切都取决于CBP官员及移民法庭法官的主观判断。只是江湖传言离境不超过6个月会比较安全而已。
总结来说就是离境时长并不是最重要的,最重要的是离境原因,比如你出发去亚马逊雨林考察野生动物连续一年多,回美国时大概率不会被认定为“not intend to make the United States your permanent home”。

貌似走Global Entry 被海关刁难的概率会小很多

我就是绿卡在国内工作。 以前都是5个半月回美国一次,每一次待大概20+天,再回中国。

然后我有一次,离开美国大概11个月入境。入境的时候海关直接问我:离开美国几个月,我答11个月,直接入境。就那么一个问题!

如果你想入籍的话,离开美国超过180天,那日子就得重新计算了。需要重新待满5年才有资格入籍。我本人没有入籍的计划,所以对我来说无所谓。

我有一次离开美国去东南亚旅游了三个多月,然后入境的时候,有一个海关告诉我,离开美国久的话,需要申请回美证。 你当我白痴啊,这点都不知道啊??典型的刁难!!他是一个带有口音的移民。

如果海关实在要让你注销绿卡,你可以上庭,告诉他不想注销绿卡的理由,比如:你在美国有房子,工作,你家人在美国之类的。 一般没有以上那么硬的理由,大概率你的绿卡会被收回
