Green Card Holder With No Reentry Permit

My husband is a UK citizen and has a Green Card, but no re-entry permit. I am a US citizen. We have been living in China for 6 years for my job and plan to return to the States. The last time my husband was in the US was 3.5 years ago. What is the process that he needs to go through to be able to reenter the States and hold onto his Green Card?

Start with contacting the local U.S. Consulate. See if they can issue a returning resident permit

Green Card Eligibility Under EB-2 Classification

Is it necessary for a beneficiary petitioned for Green Card under EB-2 classification (based on a U.S Master’s Degree) to have a degree from an accredited U.S. university?

A Beneficiary’s degree must be from an accredited university in order for the Beneficiary to be considered eligible for a Green Card under EB-2 classification. Evidence such as SEVIS certification or state board approval, which confirm that the university is a legitimate educational institution, is not sufficient to show accreditation for Green Card purposes.

It is always pleasure talking to Mr. Khanna about immigration related issues, his expertise in the immigration field are acknowledge by all the attorneys. I once had a talk over the phone with attorney who was based at west coast, during the discussion with the attorney, I mentioned that we are east coast based so he instantly mentioned Mr. Khanna’s name and he praised about him as an attorney. I was really touched by this that we work with such a great attorney.
