As a green card holder in the USA you will need to obtain a travel visa from the country where you will travel. If you are going to be gone for more than six months, you will need an I-131 Advance Parole authorization to allow you to travel without being caught in the ban on travel for more than six months at a time for green card holders. If you have any other questions, by all means e-mail us at Law QA, or e-mail me here. Best to you.

Yes, because the determination of whether or not you require a visa for travel is your country of citizenship and not the fact that you have a green card which is permanent residence in the US but is not US citizenship.
