Did anybody ever got a Returning permanent visa (SB-1 visa) to America? Itís granted when you stayed outside the USA for more then one year and hadnít apply for a reentry permit in advance before you left the States. I know I can be qualified for it, I just want to know what my chances are. I head it's really hard to get. What forms did you fill out? Are those DS 117 and DS 156? And how itís gonna impact my status as a permanent resident? Will I have to file some additional forms on my arrival to the States or appear before an emigrational judge to preserve my status? What else can I do now when my stay outside of the USA is 11 months, not one year yet? Should I at least call consulate to let them know that I am not intended to abandon my residency and willing to apply for that kind of visa later. Is it going to help me in the future? Thank you in advance.
