Green Card Replacement Form I-90
Why replace your Green Card?
Your green card serves as proof of identity and proof of your U.S. immigration status. Not having a valid green card can cause problems. You must show proof of your right to work in the U.S. when applying for a job or your current employer may even ask for a copy of it.
Who can use USCIS Form I-90 to replace a Green Card (Who is eligible?)
Both permanent residents (those who have 10 year green cards) and conditional permanent residents (people with 2 year green cards) can use Form I-90 for the following purposes:
- Replace a lost, stolen or damaged green card
- Request a green card if the USCIS issued you a green card but you never received it
- Request a replacement green card if there is a mistake on your current one and you need to fix it
- Request a replacement green card because you have legally changed biographical information about yourself, such as your name
Permanent residents can also use Form I-90 to request a special green card if they are taking up Commuter Status, turning 14 years old, or if they automatically became a U.S. permanent resident.
If you are a conditional permanent resident, can you use USCIS form I-90 to renew your Green Card or get a replacement Green Card?
Conditional permanent residents are people who have 2 year green cards. You may have a conditional green card if you received your green card through marriage or through entrepreneurship.
If you are a conditional permanent resident, you cannot use Form I90 to replace your green card. Instead, before your green card expires, you must request to have the conditions on your permanent residence removed. If your request is approved, you will receive a 10 year, nonconditional green card.
It is VERY IMPORTANT that submit your petition to remove conditions before your conditional green card expires. If you allow your green card to expire before submitting this request, you could lose your permanent resident status and even be forced to leave the U.S.
If you have a conditional green card through marriage, you can use Form I-751 to remove conditions on your residence. FileRight can help you complete your application!
How long does it take to replace a Green Card? (Processing Time)
It typically takes about six months to receive your new green card after filing Form I90. That’s why it’s very important to complete and file your application as soon as you can.
How much does it cost to replace or renew my Green Card?
There are a few different fees associated with renewing your green card. The government fees are $455 application fee and $85 biometrics fee.
