        Tin,

        Anything under 6 months should be fine. Use a calendar. For example, if you depart the US on 1/1/10, you should return by 6/30/10. That will keep you within the guidelines.

            So close to six months is considered a defacto 6 months by CBP and will probably earn you a warning, secondary referral, or a deferred inspection appointment. CBP will then start tracking your travel habits.

                Here I agree 100% with federale86. Do not make a travel pattern of 5 months each.

                  It it's just a one off trip, you'll be fine. You are actually allowed to stay out of the US for up to a year - more than a year requires a re-entry permit.

                  Trips of any length can become an issue but generally only when they're repeated and the GC holder is spending more time outside the US than he/she is in. It's highly unlikely that one trip would raise that flag.

                    I agree with Aroha. You will be fine. It really depends on facts and circumstances. As long as you maintain closer ties with the United States than with your home country, traveling this length of a time will not be a problem.

                    If you travel repeatedly outside the United states for this amount of time it may be an issue. However, it still goes back maintaining closer connections to the United States.

                      The person traveling will know because he is the person who will get the warning, referal to secondary questioning or the deferred inspection.
