When should I apply for Re-entry Permit?

You must apply for Re-entry Permit before leaving the U.S. Failure to do so may cause you to lose permission to re-enter the U.S. and lead to the denial of any other applications.


Does Re-entry Permit guarantee me admission into the U.S.?

No, Re-entry Permit does not guarantee you admission into the U.S. Foreign nationals with Re-entry Permit are still subject to the immigration inspections process at the port of entry.

Note: Travel outside of the U.S for more than one year will under most circumstances break the continuous residence requirement for later Naturalization purposes.
