Hi, what is the easiest state to get residency in? The one that requires the lease documentation, etc? I'm a permanent resident but lost my ID abroad a while ago. Right now have out of country (Canada, UK) ID only.

Thanks

Suggest you post this on the immigration forum, unless of course you're just a troll.

Not a troll, just new to the forum. Smiling big about California. What a great place - esp. long beach!

Rewind...

You're a permanent resident where? What ID did you lose? Are you talking about residency requirements for school?

States don't control your immigration status - the federal government does.

What exactly are you trying to accomplish?

I'm a lawful permanent resident (green card holder), but I lost my wallet while abroad some time ago. I have an Ontario drivers license and a UK passport, and I'd like to enter the states and get the ball rolling on state ID while I wait for a replacement green card (two to five months I'm told). I have a social security number, but the card was in the same wallet I lost.

I primarily need to to replace a California drivers license I had about 9 years ago as that's where I think I'm headed... unless there's an easier state such as Washington perhaps.

Just go to a CA DMV and tell them you lost your California drivers license. They are friendly enough to help, you might need something to prove who you are. But I would start there as they will reissue a license with the same number.

Thanks for that info. It's a drag when you loose your wallet!

Officially, you'd need to find the nearest US embassy or consulate wherever you are, and get from them some sort of document to allow you to enter the US before your replacement green card arrives.
