Is this someone who qualifies to file a joint return with a full-year citizen or resident?  Or are you  filing a dual-status return?

The CARES Act did not specify the date by which someone must meet the requirements for being a “resident alien” nor have they specified which actions a person is involved in as a “Dual-Status” Alien will be used by IRS as a basis for issuing an EIP and which ones will not.
