What You Should Know​

A Permanent Resident Card (USCIS Form I-551) is proof of your permanent resident status in the United States. It also serves as a valid personal identification document and proof that you eligible to live and work in the United States. Although some resident cards, commonly known as “green cards” do not contain an expiration date, most are valid for ten (10) years. If you have been granted conditional resident status, your card is only valid for two (2) years.

It is important to keep your card up to date. Without a valid card, it may be difficult for you to prove that you are permanent resident, and this could also affect your ability to travel or to prove your eligibility to work in the United States.

When Do I Need to Renew My Green Card?

You should renew your permanent resident card if you were issued a card that is valid for 10 years that has either expired or will expire within the next 6 months.

If your permanent resident card is valid for 2 years, you are a condition resident and must file to remove the condition on the green card instead of filing for renewal. You must file to remove the condition on your green card within 90 days of the card’s expiration date. If your petition to remove the condition on green card is approved, you will then be granted a permanent resident card with a 10 year validity.

If your permanent resident card does not have an expiration date on it, then you have a very old version of the card. Most old versions are no longer valid. Even if you card does not have an expiration date on it, you should most likely renew it. However, you should consult an experience immigration attorney before filing to avoid any potential complications.
