If your ants are in hibernation you are fine. If they are not and you do not have someone to look after them.
Make sure you have given the outworld a good clean and then just make sure they have a fresh water supply and plenty of fresh food to sustain the the colony while you are away.

If the colony is still in just a test tube set up then it really depends on the amount of workers?
If there are no workers and pupae, just larvae and eggs then you are good to go. Could even come home to your first workers at which point be ready to feed.
