Departure controls in your country of citizenship are not the problem here. The green card is not legally sufficient to return to the US after more than 1 year of absence. Furthermore, an airline is unlikely to allow you to board a flight to the US with an expired green card. You should apply for a returning resident visa. A permanent resident (called ...

Personally I would not risk it. If all goes well, you may have a chance to make it but it is very risky and if you miss it you carry the full responsibility and may have to buy a brand new ticket on the spot. And you probably have to spend the night in Halifax too. In addition to the steps you listed, you also have to pass immigration. Immigration, bag ...

There's no fixed rule. An often stated rule of thumb is that if -- averaged over several visits -- you're spending more time outside the UK than in, you probably won't be considered to be living in the UK through frequent or successive visits. But it's really always a concrete judgement based on both your travel history and your answers when you're asked ...

If you have a ten-year ban then you have a ten-year ban. A ban doesn’t mean much if you can simply reapply so it really means a ban— a ban is a ban. The ban starts the day you leave so if you left in 2011 then it expires in 2021. Keep documentation of when you left for this reason. The only way to get a visa would be to first have the ban lifted. However, ...

Per TIMATIC, the database used by airlines: Additional Information: An expired Permanent Resident/Resident Alien Card (Form I-551) is accepted with: a 10-years validity at time of issuance; or a Transportation Letter issued by the USA; or a civilian or military travel order issued by the USA or if the passenger is included as dependent spouse or child ...

The airline will only check your documents relating to your current flight itinerary. For example, with a return ticket from the US to Portugal, the airline will check that you can enter Portugal when you check in for your flight to Portugal. Your documents for entering the US will be checked when you check in for the return flight to the US. As for ...

Gayot has a reputation for posting answers that imply being very, very familiar with UK visa processes. I seem to remember at least one question on meta that implied they were directly involved professionally with some legal affairs pertaining to UK visas. Thus, Gayot probably had the opportunity either to talk to the relevant visa centre officers directly ...
