QUESTION 1: I know once she enters the Us she becomes a permanent green card holder, correct?
ANSWER: If she is entering the US with an immigrant visa, she becomes a Permanent Resident of the US upon successful inspection and grant of entry by the CBP officer. She should receive her green card in the mail within 4 to 6 weeks.
QUESTION 2: he needs to travel back to her native country to complete the last semester of school, which is only 4-5 months. At this point, she does not advance parole correct, since she already has a green card?
ANSWER: If she does not intend to be absent from the US for 1 year or more, she does not require any Travel Document to leave the US.
Again, please keep in mind that even though she is a Permanent Resident once she is successfully admitted to the US with an immigrant visa, she will not get her green card immediately. Instead, she will get an I-551 stamp in her passport, which functions exactly as a green card for all purposes. She uses that instead of a green card until the green card is issued to her.
NOTE: FYI, Advance Parole is one type of Travel Document, but it would not be appropriate for her situation because she would already be a Permanent Resident. So the type of Travel Document you would be asking about is a Re-Entry Permit, not Advanced Parole. But she does not require either, since her stay abroad will be less than 1 year.
know these issues can be confusing. If you want to discuss this or anything else by phone, I can send you an offer for that. There will be an additional fee, if you want to do that. Please let me know and I will send you the offer.
I hope I have answered your questions. Kindly rate my customer service with a positive rating. I do not get a salary here and this is the only way I am compensated for my efforts. So please do not forget to do that before you log off. You can do that by giving me 3 or more stars, or any of the smiling faces. And you can continue to ask questions even after you have given a rating. Again, giving me a positive rating is the ONLY way I get credit for helping you.
