I was recently granted Permanent Resident Status through Diversity Visa Lottery, and I need to apply for a Reentry Permit because I still have to finish my education abroad.I really don't think that I'll never come back in US in those years, but I want to apply just to show, in case, an additional proof of my willingness to live permanently in US.It could take up to 3 years to get my degree, and I know that a Reentry Permit is valid only for a maximum of 2 years, so that I'll have to apply again when it expires.But I don't know what to put in "Expected lenght of trip" in the I-131 form.Should I put 3 years, that is the truth, or just 2 years to not incur in any kind of ineligibility due to too much time requested?Thank you.
State/Country relating to question: United States
You can list up to two years. You should also be able to enter various times during those two years. They just want to have an idea. When you come back in 2 years, apply for a new one. Please let me know if you have any additional questions. I would be happy to answer them for you without additional charge, if not, please do not forget to click ACCEPT. That is the only way that I can get paid a small percentage of your deposit. If you do not click accept, the website gets all of your deposit and I get nothing. When you click accept, you are not charged again and we can continue to communicate without additional charge if you have a few follow-up questions. If you would like to request me in the future, just put my name on the subject line. Positive feedback for my service to you (not the state of the law as it is) is always appreciated as well as any bonus if you think I deserve it. Thank you.
