I'm trying to find the best option to be able to stay outside for the maximum allowed time and under the six-month limit (re-entry is not preferred since it will delay my citizenship). From another answer, I quote.
There are also legal implications if you stay away for more than six months.
My last trip was from May 02, 2021 to June 20, 2021 (
49 48 days, see calculation at timeanddate).
Upcoming Trip: I have to leave again this year on March 1, 2022 (flexible departure). I assume I'm still within the year cycle.
Option 1: I leave abroad for 11 days and return (total of 60 days/year). I wait for June 20 for the clock to reset, and I take another trip while staying abroad for under six months.
Option 2: I can leave on March 1st but then return on June 20 (last year's return date), making a total of 160 days/year (5.3 months).
Since I'm not sure how the clock works and when it resets, I'm finding it hard to plan an itinerary.
Lateral thinking? I'd highly appreciate if you can suggest me an itinerary.
I'll be prepared to have the evidence just in case on the return. Just more insights.
Documents for car export from the UK and import into Pakistan. I'll be driving it out via Europe, with brief stays on the way for sightseeing. UK,Europe,Turkey,Pakistan can take 2-3 months. The car was recently purchased from the UK for the export to Pakistan for family use or personal use whenever I visit there. The units built or sold there are not safe. I do have a vehicle in the US under my organization's name.
I'll be working remotely for my job and want to only drive few hours each day. about 6-8 hours of work and 4 hours of drive.
