USCIS EXTENDS GREEN CARD VALIDITY FOR PERMANENT RESIDENTS WITH A PENDING FORM I-751 OR FORM I-829


The U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) is extending the validity of Permanent Resident Cards (also known as Green Cards) for petitioners who properly file Form I-751, Petition to Remove Conditions on Residence or Form I-829, Petition by Investor to Remove Conditions on Permanent Resident Status for 48 months beyond the card’s expiration date. This change began on January 11, 2023, for Form I-829 and started on January 25, 2023, for Form I-751. Additionally, USCIS updated the language on Form I-751 and Form I-829 receipt notices to extend the validity of a Green Card for 48 months for individuals with a newly filed Form I-751 or Form I-829. New receipt notices will be sent out to eligible conditional permanent residents who previously received notices with an extension shorter than 48 months and whose cases are still pending. These receipt notices can be presented with an expired Green Card as evidence of continued status, while the case remains pending with USCIS. By presenting an updated receipt notice with their expired Green Card, workers will remain authorized to work and travel for 48 months from the expiration date on the front of their expired Green Card.
