Form I-90

A green card is an immigration document that serves as your proof that you have permission to live and work in the United States. The application form I-90 is used to replace or renew your green card. Certain steps must be taken in order to successfully submit an application to the United States Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS).

Note: Do not use this form if you are a conditional resident seeking to remove conditions from your green card.
