One of my friend's was in a similar situation in 2006...He got his GC in early 2006 or late 2005...His company opened a branch in the mid east and he moved there to bring up the business...I think there is a provision where a GC holder is allowed to stay out of US for 2 yrs...I am not sure what it is called but he applied for that and got it approved and he has been staying there since then...He only visited US for a week last year, just to make sure his GC was still OK but he said that was not necessary too...So I guess your friend can consult a lawyer on this...Hope this helps...
