    Hello, I have a question.

    In the case I left the country for only one day. Like going out on Monday and returning Tuesday, Shall I count it like 1 day or just not to mention it in the form?

    I mean, it is more than 24 hours trip, but two partial days. how does it work?

    And how does it work in the case of three days?

    Thanks
