Good News for Green Card Holders!

This month USCIS will change how it temporarily extends the I-551 Green Card of I-90 applicants while their I-90 is pending; instead of providing a physical sticker to be placed on the Green Card, USCIS will automatically extend the validity of the Green Card of I-90 applicants for 12 months through updated language in the I-797 receipt notice. The temporary 12 month extension will be based on the "card expires" date on the front of the Green Card. Both the Green Card and the I-797 will need to be presented together to show temporary proof of the Lawful Permanent Resident's (LPR's) status. This will help to avoid issues with I-90 applicants demonstrating their identity or proof of valid employment authorization or travel documentation while their I-90 is pending.

For I-9 purposes, presenting the Green Card together with the I-797 with the updated language would count as a List A document (Establishes both identity and employment authorization).

For those I-90 applicants whose I-90 is currently pending, if they have already received their biometrics appointment notice, they will receive the temporary extension via the physical sticker on their Green Card. However, if they have not yet received the biometrics appointment notice, they will receive the temporary extension through the I-797 with the updated language.

If you will be renewing your I-551 Green Card or if you are considering applying for U.S. Naturalization, you may want to consult with an immigration attorney to discuss your case. Attorney Carcagno handles these applications and provides a free initial intake consultation (734) 999-0360.
