Kepler's third law of planetary motion states that the square of the orbital periodof a planet is proportional to the cube of the semi-major axisof its orbit.
Now as the distance of the planet from the sun increases, the length of the semi-major axis of its orbit will also increase and therefore the period of revolution will also increase.

From Kepler’s Law, we know Tproportional to rwhere T is the orbital time period and r is the length of semi major axis. 
 
So, according to your question, r changes to 3r , hence applying Kepler’s Law, the new time period will be 3√3
T being the initital time period.
