My son who will turn 21 shortly recieved an immigrant visa under the category IR2. He needs to continue his studies for another 2 years in the home country before he will be able to live continiously in the USA. Can he apply for a reentry permit immediately after reaching the USA. Will the immediate timing of the application have any bearing on USICS'S decision to grant him a re entry permit or not? Is continuing his studies a good enough reason for the USICS to grant him a reentry permit. What type of reasons are appropriate and which ones might result in refusal of grant of the permit? If he does not get a re entry permit and enters the USA after every 5 months or so for the next 2 years (a total of 3 trips) is he likely to face any problems entering or is entering the USA every 11 months or so (less than 12) for the first 2 years i.e two visits after 11 months each also going to be enough for him to be able to enter without any problems?
