Hi everyone, I'm going through the papers and I have 1 questions (I'm sure I'll have more to follow).

How do I have to get his days outside of the US

Let's say he left on Jan. 01, 2012 - Jan. 3, 2012

Does that count as 1 day outside of the US meaning only Jan. 02, 2012 or does that count as 3 days out, Jan 1, 2 & 3?

Thank youuu.

:)

Basically, yes. That's how you can count them for the application. However, CIS sometimes calculates them differently, but we do not know how. If you have been outside the US for reasonably few days, then this won't matter. You won't be penalised for counting differently than they do, even though their own guideline is that partial days spent in the US count as full days spent in the US. If you have been out of the country for around 850 days in the last 5 years, then being this close to the 913 days allowable can get tricky.

Unless there was a whole LOT of those it will not matter anyway. Take the conservative approach and count it as 3. OR, you could logically consider that he WAS in the US on January 1 and WAS in the US on January 3 so it is only one day, BUT it really will not matter unless there was an awful lot of 3 day trips. For longer trips, several weeks for example, it really does not matter. 36 days vs 38 days? If he was present in the US more than 50% of the time and had no absences over 6 months without proof of maintaining residency, it is a moot point anyway.

For the best answer, What immigration form is asking you this question? I would count that example as only 3days, being that hes back on US soil on the 3rd day!
