Hi Experts,

My AP is expiring in Nov 2009 and I am planning to return back to US in Oct.
But since I left US in March, this will be more than 6 months outside US.
Is there any rule,timeline for AP to be outside US?
I was told that person travelling on AP, has to return to US within 6 months of his departure. Is this true?
My H1 is also expired,so I will be able to return back only on AP.

Thanks in advance.

there may not be any rule; but the folks at the port of entry could create problems. They can ask questions like "you were away for the last 6 months from the job and the employer was not affected. then he will not be affected even if you are not there."
