The application asks whether your parents, other immediate relatives, or other more distant relatives are in the U.S. Does "in" the U.S mean:
- Resident in the U.S (temporary home)
- Domiciled (permanent home)
- Physically present (temporary or permanent) OR
- Immigration status (citizen, LPR...)
For example: a dual USA citizen who is living permanently in his other country of citizenship. Another scenario could be a U.S citizen who is temporarily working in another country with plans to return. Are either of them considered "in the U.S?" What if the person is away for a short visit and not physically in the U.S at the time of the application. Are they "in the U.S?"
