            Green card can also be abandoned in case you live outside the United States for more than six month or 1 year in a row. It is usually on a case by case basis.

              You can visit the US Embassy to surrender your Green Card, or permanent resident status, as well as apply for a non-immigrant visitor's visa, though these services are handled by two different offices within the embassy. The procedures for both surrendering residency and applying for a visa are outlined below. Just like all other parts of an application, previous permanent residency in the United States will be considered as the officer tries to determine an applicant's qualifications for a visa.

              Surrendering a Green Card does not positively or negatively affect one's ability to obtain a non-immigrant visa. The applicant should be prepared to discuss how he or she is tied to Jamaica after having resided in the US. It is important to note that anyone who currently holds Legal Permanent Resident (LPR) status must abandon that status before they will be eligible to obtain a non-immigrant visa.
