I am a male, Taiwanese citizen, born after 1994, and currently a first year college student living in Taipei. I was recently approved for a family-based immigrant visa, and now have less than 6 months to enter the United States based on the given expiration date. I have not served my military requirements yet, and there does not seem to be enough time to do so before the immigrant visa expires.
My questions are: will I be allowed to leave Taiwan/enter the US without having served in the military? I had originally planned to serve after completing my degree, but I now plan to finish my schooling in the US. Am I able to still defer service because I will still be a full time student?
Another route, is it possible to postpone entering the US in order to complete my military service before leaving? I will be confirming with the consulate as to what my options are, but was looking for any help in the meantime.
