Nearly one year into the COVID-19 pandemic and many US green card holders are facing a difficult dilemma: risk losing their permanent resident status (and green card) or defy travel restrictions and put their and others' health at risk.

  • Can the airline stop you from boarding the plane to the U.S.?
  • What is an SB-1 visa and how hard is it to get?
