Legal Permanent Residents (LPRs), or colloquially known as “Green Card Holders”, can breathe a little easier when it comes to extending or renewing their Permanent Resident Cards. The U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) is automatically extending the validity of a Green Card to 24 months for LPRs who properly file Form I-90, Application to Replace
Permanent Resident Card.
Past Form I-90 receipt notices provided a 12-month extension of the validity period of a Green Card. On September 26th, USCIS started printing amended receipt notices with updated language that extends validity of a Green Card for 24 months for individuals with a pending Form I-90.
These newly updated receipt notices for the I-90 forms are on their way. And once obtained, an LPR can present their expired green card with the 24-month extension of validity receipt notice
stated on their I-90 form as proof of continued status.
We know that waiting is the hardest part and the biggest factor in the immigration law field. But
hopefully, this extension will help keep some of the stress at bay. If you have any questions, do
