USCIS Issues Permanent Resident Cards With Incorrect Expiration Dates

Spread the love

USCIS recently informed members of AILA (American Immigration Lawyers Association) that the agency had issued approximately 2,500 conditional lawful permanent resident cards.  The agency is requesting that people who received the erroneous cards to return them to USCIS for a new card with the correct expiration date.

A few notes:

  • Returning the card does not affect or cancel the alien's lawful status;
  • While the alien awaits the replacement lawful permanent resident card, the agency will provide a temporary I-551 stamp in the person's passport;
  • There is no fee for the replacement green card; and,
  • The alien does NOT have to file a Form I-90, Application to Replace Permanent Resident Card in order to receive the replacement card.

The agency allowed aliens to return their green card either by mail or at an application support center (ASC) in their area.
