You need to go through the green card process now, then go to the U.S., apply for reentry permit and go back to India, finish your studies and then go to the U.S. to live there.

I thought the same thing..
bu i don't know how much time it will take to get green card and permit to come back to India...

I also teach the students that means I take tut tution also..
though it doesn't matter that much i just want to know the max. and min, time period to come back after going there..
one more question is that
Isn't there anyway to get the time period till I complete my study here.
so that i've to go to US only once...
seeking for ur help
thx again....

1. Timings vary.
2. You can't do that.

that means I have to go there for green card process...
i'll go.
now the thing is how much time it will take to get green card there..
is it possible to apply for permit before gettin green card..
and one more thing is that I want to go there in next summer
so how can i do that..
can i come to india after gettin green card for a week or so without that permit..
because i may have exam at tht time..
in a week I may complete my exams and go back to US to get the permit for completing my study...
and how the whole process is done?
