Bird talk - Le Jaseur
Dear bird talk,

if we go home to Alberta for two or three weeks, are we allowed to deduct this time from the amount of days we are allowed to be in the U.S.? People are telling us that nothing under 30 days is allowed.

Response:
Ed: We have been advised, in writing, that an absence of less than 30 days will be considered as part of the same trip, even if you were not in the U.S. A border guard has a great deal of discretion, so there are often stories which say that this does not apply. The people advising you are correct.
