How Green Card Validity Extension Benefits US Permanent Residents

In today’s blog, we are discussing how the extension in the Green Card validity benefits US Permanent Residents.

First, we will see when the extension notice is announced.

The USCIS, from September 26, 2022, has automatically extended the validity of Green Cards officially referred to as Permanent Resident Cards from 12 months to 24 months for legal green card holders. This extension is for those applicants who file a Form I-90 Application to Replace Permanent Resident Card.

The USCIS has updated the wording on Form I-90 receiving notices for an extension of the validity of Permanent Resident Cards from 12 months to 24 months for applicants with a newly logged Form I-90.

The printing of the amended receiving notices began on September 26 by the USCIS for applicants with pending Form I-90. The applicant can present these receiving notices with expired  Permanent Resident Cards as proof of continued status.

This extension will be beneficial to applicants who are experiencing longer processing times as they will have longer proof of legal permanent resident status while they are waiting for their Green Card renewal.
