Can You Reapply for a Revoked Green Card?


If you have a Green Card, you are likely looking forward to becoming a permanent U.S. citizen. A Green Card allows you to stay in the country legally and permanently, and it also allows you to earn a living through gainful employment. However, there are conditions that have to be met to be in good standing and keep your Green Card. It is possible that mistakes you make could lead to your Green Card being revoked.

Wanting to become a U.S. citizen through naturalization is something that many around the globe aspire to do. There is a process that one has to go through in order for this to happen. A prospective U.S. citizen must demonstrate that they have good moral character, that they understand the principles of the U.S government, and that they have a grasp on U.S. history. They must also stay out of trouble.

If you have questions about obtaining and retaining a Green Card, you are welcome to reach out to speak with an Atlanta naturalization attorney at Shirazi Immigration Law, Inc.

You Have Options After a Green Card Revocation 

The worst thing that can happen to a Green Card holder is to have it revoked. The reason why this happens can vary, but there are certain situations where a Green Card revocation may take place, such as:

  • As a permanent resident when you applied for your Green Card it has been realized that you lied on your application, you committed marriage fraud, or you omitted relevant and important information.
  • You committed a crime. For example, if you committed theft, burglary, or assault, you will lose your Green Card. Plus, you may also be subject to deportation.
  • You traveled outside of the U.S. too often for too long. Staying outside of the U.S. for as long as 180 days and longer in a year could be putting your Green Card status in jeopardy. It is imperative that in situations where you must go on extended travel that you do so properly by going through the right process and obtaining the appropriate documents.

Having your Green Card status revoked can be troubling. However, there could be a chance that you may reapply. It is essential in these situations to have an attorney’s assistance and guidance.

You must know your eligibility to reapply. If you are qualified to reapply, you can do so through a Returning Resident Visa (SB-1 Visa). For individuals who have been abroad for over a year, your attorney will discuss what other options are available to you to get your permanent resident status back.
