India trip between TN aspproval date at POE and start date

I will be going to the POE - Lewiston for a TN on March 5. The start date on my letter is for Mar 23.

I had the same gap on my previous TN.

Would it be fine to go to India and come back? Would I need a new TN after the India trip ?

Trips outside North America before start date would need a new I94 card and not a new TN application process.

Just confirmed with the CBP officer.
So on March 5th, you requested and obtained a new TN with a letter stating a start date of March 23rd?
(2.5 weeks before start date)
A common question is how far in advance can I request TN, typically it is one to two weeks. (some say two weeks is too far in advance)

Thanks for the reply. The officer told me it is 10 calendar days and issued me the TN at POE.
