Once we receive our AP, are we allowed to exit and re-enter multiple times?

Once my fiance received his AP (I have heard about 3 months after applying), is he only allowed to exit and reenter once, or is he allowed to go in and out of the country as many times as he wants? We are having a "legal" wedding right when he comes over in January, but are planning a big wedding in August of next year. We would like to go out of the country for our honeymoon, but we want to make sure he doesn't have to reapply for another AP to leave the country again. I would appreciate any help!

Thanks!

amelynn,

Did you read the application form before asking the question? The answer to your question depends in large part on how he answers Part 7 Question 1.

Yodrak

Once my fiance received his AP (I have heard about 3 months after applying), is he only allowed to exit and reenter once, or is he allowed to go in and out of the country as many times as he wants? We are having a "legal" wedding right when he comes over in January, but are planning a big wedding in August of next year. We would like to go out of the country for our honeymoon, but we want to make sure he doesn't have to reapply for another AP to leave the country again. I would appreciate any help!

Thanks!

Thank you all for your help. No, I haven't read the application yet. Rich is not coming over until January, so we're not having our "big" wedding until August. I just want to make sure before we make any honeymoon plans, then find out we can't leave the country. Thanks again for all of your help everyone!
