I have German 3- year residency and now I got an opportunity to study at the USA for two years masters degree. Will I lose my residency if I choose to go for my study? 

please note that I live with my family in Germany since December 2021.

Hey waherzad , thank you for your question. Normally you lose your residence permit after 6 months if you are not in Germany. But there are exceptions, so you should definitely seek advice: If you need help finding the right advice centre, let me know.
