Permanent residents may lose their status if they reside outside American Samoa for a period in excess of 6 months without approval of the board. Any non-American Samoan permanent resident can lose the status of “permanent resident” by action of the board because that person has violated the requirements of 41.0405 of the Act. The office of the Attorney General may file an order to show cause against any alien who has received the status of permanent resident for the purpose of losing that status. The alien shall have the right to appear at the hearing and to be served with process.
