Green card renewals will be automatically extending the old green card: what`s the terms

☝Effective Sept. 26, 2022, USCIS will be automatically extending the validity of Permanent Resident Cards (also known as Green Cards) to 24 months for lawful permanent residents who file Form I-90, Application to Replace Permanent Resident Card.

Green Card holders who properly file Form I-90 to renew an expiring or expired 10-year Green Card will be receiving this automatic 24-months extension. Form I-90 receipt notices had previously provided a 12-month extension of the validity of a Green Card. The NEW I-90 receipt notices will list 24 months validity.

📋On Sept. 26, USCIS began printing updated I-90 receipt notices.

These receipt notices can be presented with an expired Green Card as evidence of continued status when traveling and for all other purposes (Driver’s License renewal, jobs, etc). This longer extension is expected to help applicants who experience longer processing times, because they will now have written proof of longer status as delays grow with USCIS.

👉If you no longer have your Green Card and you need evidence of your lawful permanent resident status while waiting to receive your replacement Green Card, you may request an appointment at a USCIS Field Office (INFOPASS APPOINTMENT) by contacting the USCIS Contact Center, and USCIS may issue you an Alien Documentation, Identification, and Telecommunications (ADIT) stamp after you file Form I-90. These stamps will be reserved for people who lost their Green Card or it was destroyed (like in a flood or a fire).
