    stay in what tense

    This month is October. I'm planning on going back home in March.


    In an email, I want to say the following to a friend:

    I will go back home in March.
    If I stayed in this country any long, I would die.
    If I stay in this country any long, I would die.
    If I will stayed in this country any long, I would die.


    I don't know what tense stay should be in . Is it conditional because I will definitely not be in this country, but currently, I am still in this country. Since it's in the future, is it future tense?

    Re: stay in what tense

    If I stayed in this country any longer, I would die. Or,
    If I stay in this country any long, I will die.
