What is the SB1 visa, and how can returning residents qualify for it?

The SB1 visa is designed for lawful permanent residents (green card holders) who have remained outside the United States for an extended period and have lost their green card status. To qualify for an SB1 visa, returning residents must demonstrate that their failure to return to the U.S. was due to circumstances beyond their control and that they have maintained significant ties to the country. These ties may include maintaining close family relationships, financial investments, or ongoing employment or business interests in the U.S. Applicants must also show that they intended to return to the U.S. at the time of their departure and that they are returning now to resume permanent residence. Meeting these criteria can be complex, and applicants are encouraged to seek guidance from an experienced immigration attorney to navigate the SB1 visa application process successfully.
