We study exit times from a set for a family of multivariate autoregressive processes with normally
distributed noise. By using the large deviation principle, and other methods, we show that the asymptotic
behavior of the exit time depends only on the set itself and on the covariance matrix of the stationary
distribution of the process. The results are extended to exit times from intervals for the univariate
autoregressive process of order n, where the exit time is of the same order of magnitude as the exponential
of the inverse of the variance of the stationary distribution.
