As a US lawful permanent residence (LPR) there are situations where you may need to obtain proof from US Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS), that you remain in lawful immigration status. This can be done by obtaining an ADIT stamp from USCIS. We discuss the meaning of an “ADIT” stamp and when it is necessary here.
One of the conditions to maintain lawful US permanent resident status (LPR or Green Card holders) is to maintain and have permanent residence in the United States. In general, a green card holder who moves outside the United States making another country their permanent residence abandons their green card. However, there are exceptions for US permanent residents who commute to the United States for employment from Canada or Mexico. We discuss, “commuter status” for US permanent residents who commute from Canada or Mexico here.
