USCIS Extends Green Card Validity to 24 Months for Renewals


Effective September 26, 2022, the U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) has extended the validity of permanent resident cards (green cards) to 24 months for lawful permanent residents who file Form I-90, Application to Replace Permanent Resident Card.

Lawful permanent residents who properly file Form I-90 to renew an expiring or expired green card may receive this extension. Previously, Form I-90 receipt notices provided a 12-month extension of the validity of a green card. USCIS has updated the language on Form I-90 receipt notices to extend this validity to 24 months for individuals with a newly filed Form I-90.

Additionally, USCIS began printing amended receipt notices on September 26, 2022, for individuals with a pending Form I-90. These receipt notices can be presented with an expired green card as evidence of continued status.

If you have any questions about the green card renewal process, please contact one of our expert attorneys for more information.
