Northern Mariana Islands Residents Relief Act
This bill provides Commonwealth of the Northern Mariana Islands (CNMI) Resident status to certain otherwise qualifying aliens who do not meet a current requirement of having resided continuously and lawfully in the Northern Mariana Islands from November 28, 2009, through June 25, 2019.
Specifically an alien shall be exempt from this residency requirement if the alien was admitted as a Commonwealth Only Transitional Worker during FY2015 and every subsequent fiscal year before July 24, 2018.
To qualify for CNMI Resident status, the alien must meet other existing requirements related to such status.
An individual who has resided in the Northern Mariana Islands as an investor and is currently residing as a Northern Mariana Islands-only nonimmigrant may receive CNMI Resident status upon meeting other requirements.
