Questions and answers:

Inna asks: I live in United States and I have a green card but my Ukrainian passport has expired, do I need a visa to visit?
Expert's answer:
If we are talking about visiting Ukraine, then you are still a citizen of this country and can visit it without a visa (contact the embassy of Ukraine to the US to get the latest info about extension of your passport). If it is about whether you can return to the United States, then the green card gives you this right as a permanent resident. If you need to leave the United States for more than 6 months without losing status, then you should apply for a Reentry Permit. This document allows you to leave the United States up to two years without losing status.
