    Unfortunately, staying abroad for more than one year or longer you may lose your green card.

    An important part of obtaining and keeping a Green Card is your intention to make the U.S. your permanent residence. A Green Card holder may travel abroad and use the Green Card as a re-entry document. If you hold a Green Card you may stay abroad for up to six months without any problem. Absences abroad of more than six months but less than one (1) year create a reputable presumption that you intended to abandon your residence. However if you are abroad for more than a continuous period of one year or longer you may lose your right to use the Green Card to re-enter the U.S. While the Immigration Officer is supposed to deny those abroad for a year or longer admission, in practice many INS inspectors at the airport will admit you. However, a re-entry permit does not guarantee your re-admission into the U.S.

    If you intend to be absent from the U.S. for 1-2 years, you should obtain a re-entry permit. This is an indication that the INS has accepted your explanation that your intention is to stay abroad for 1-2 years as a "temporary" matter.

    Here is a link showing some "general rules" to keep your green card:

    Although it is not easy since you are absent too long, just give a trial and emphasize the education in Taiwan is a compulsory one so that you are not allowed to go freely before completion.

    Or you can stop by Canada and drive to the States. They will check green card but not passport.

    現在美國對出境過久的綠卡持有者都審查很嚴有可能會吊銷你的綠卡理由是你根本不想住在美國請問你現在幾歲如果年紀很輕你不妨試試看和移民官說你為了學業所以一直沒回美國現在書讀完了準備回美國繼續深造移民官應該會將你的案件移送移民法庭去審理所以你應該還是會被允許入境至於掉不吊銷綠卡將交由移民法官決定但要做出庭的準備同時你一定要提供你在美國的居住地址電話還有你父母或家人最好也住在美國以示你的定居決心如果還擔心不過不妨找個移民律師來幫你打這各官司
