Green Card & I90 Replacements

B Visitor Visas

Green card holders are concretely informed about their green card’s importance as it enables their permanent residency and working permission within the United States. This can be verified when traveling out of the United States; it must be shown for reentering approval.


When a green card ultimately got from Form I-551 is stolen, lost, or destroyed, it must immediately be replaced. The card owner should immediately file a police report; the police report can be provided as evidence when requesting a replacement.


The police report helps to provide evidence that the card was not exchanged for profit. However, when requesting a new green card under a new name for either marriage or divorce reasons, you are expected to complete the application under the new name.


A green card validation lasts for ten months. Six months to a card expiration is considered the advisable time for filing for a new green card, while it is prohibited to file earlier than six months of the expiration.


It is important to have a scanned copy or a captured image of your green card. For reasons such as when the card is lost, stolen, or destroyed, your access to all the numbers and other information needed to replace it is guaranteed. A copy of the card number is required for submission with the replacement application.


The Process

Green card application based on the I-90 form is used to make new requests, replacements, name changes, and renewals of the green card. Candidates can obtain the form directly via the U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) office, and can be requested to be mailed to them by calling 800-375-5283, or can be downloaded from the USCIS website via a pdf application.
