  1. Answered . It depends on the reason for travel out of the country. Typically if you will be out of the country for an extended period of time, you should try to obtain a premission to re-enter prior to leaving the USA. If you stay out of the country for more than two years without a permission to re-enter, you will have abandonned your status. Contact an attorney to discuss your specific situation as this is for general information only.
