What states will issue to NON US RESIDENT citizen?
Amazing as it seems, some states are barring US citizens who are not presently permanent residents of the USA from obtaining non resident permits; whereas NON citizens are able to obtain permits as long as they are residents of the USA. Bizarre or what? As a citizen where are my constitutional rights?
I have searched all the usual sites but cannot seem to get a handle on what states will issue to NON RESIDENT US CITIZENS living outside of the country (i.e. contracted to work outside the country).
There are states that will issue and I presently have Utah, Maine, Virginia, Pennsylvania. Does anyone know factually of other states that will issue to me?
Connecticut ran me through the hoops, asking for more paperwork, and then rejected my application and kept my money. Florida was gracious in calling me to advise me that I needed to be a US resident (not just a citizen) and sent me my money back although they did not have to.
I gather that Nevada and Arizona may issue to me if I go there to attend classes and apply in person....
Right now I am just trying to CMA in case some of the states decide not to issue non resident permits and I am trying to get max coverage as I travel through the states all the time.
I would especially like to have a FLA permit but they will not even recognize a permit issued by another state unless I am a resident of that state.
The problem will be partially resolved next year when we retire and buy the ranch in Texas or New Mexico.... but in the meantime I sure would like to get the ball rolling.
