Default continuous residency requirement

I have seen so many posts for people failing to meet coninuous residency requirement... I have a question for that. When someone travel abroad, they always get "ENTRY" stamped on their passport once they comeback. How would INS verify that they have been out of the country for that long. I mean, since there is no EXIT stamp, how would they know when the person left.

Permanent Residents are not given any such document, but airlines are
now required to submit manifests of all departing passengers to BCIS.
These supposedly contain passport and Green Card details for PRs.

Keep in mind that immigration law doesn't know the 'innocent until proven
guilty' concept. It's up to you to prove that you haven't broken any
immigration laws, or stayed out of the country for too long.

In my experience -- only unemployed people get to stay out of the country more than 6 months. I'm lucky if i get 3 weeks off work.

So with that said -- get a job you hoser!

I dont what gave you this impression that only unemployed stay out of the country for more that 3 weeks or to be 6 months. How about consulting overseas. BTW, another note, anyonw travels out of the country not necessarily means vacations... it could be for the work reason too...Now I wonder who is the hoser.....

Default Re: continuous residency requirement

[This is again the important question which remained without answer. Instead of providing info about the form of departure/arival records, the discussion ended up solving the problems if employed people have at all time to travel abroad.

We should come back to the main question: How do these records look like, where can be found info about them etc...

We know already that the airline companies are reporting names of passangers. But, which form is being stored? For how long?
What about trips to Canada by bus - and later from Canada to other countries by plane? What about trips to Mexico by car - and later by airplanes to other countries?

Is it really so that INS keeps such data for each green card holder for each trip abroad and for his/her entire life? Well, it should be a real mess with all that info.

Does anybody have more reliable info about this?

Then, how do they enter back to US unless they use a visa? How to get
a visa unless one lies about having GC at the consulate office when
obtaining visa to enter US?

I asked this question several months ago, but no one was able to provide plausible info.

Hopefully there are some new user who managed to get more info useful to other users. It would be great to get some more posts.
Thanks in advance.

my dad (LPR) was just leaving the States by plane two weeks ago. A rep of the airline barely looked at his passport, didn't record his GC info or passport info. It's not a scanable kind of passport, so she didn't scan it or anything.

Machine readable, scanable or not. But your dad's name is going to be in the
passenger list which would be transmitted to the IBS.
