Rambam Hilchos Melachim 5:9 based on Mesechtas Avoda Zara 13a says that one may never leave Eretz Yisrael. However the Gemara allows one to leave for various reasons, such as learning Torah, marriage, and business. Thus it would follow that one who has his business, wife, his learning set up outside Eretz Yisrael should be allowed to leave Eretz Yisrael after a visit.
