Immigration News: USCIS Recalling Incorrectly Dated Green Cards


U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) have started recalling over 8543 Permanent Resident Cards (Green Cards) mailed out between February and April 2018 due to incorrectly printed date for “Residence Since.”  These incorrect Green Cards were issued for approved applications for Form I-751, Petition to Remove Conditions of Residence filed by spouses of U.S. citizens or permanent residents.

USCIS will mail out notification with prepaid envelopes for Green Card holders to return, within 20 days, their incorrect Green CardAlternatively, these Green Card holders may also return their incorrect Green Card to their local USCIS office.  USCIS will send out replacement Green Cards within 15 days of receiving their returned cards.


Although the incorrect date on such a Green Card does not affect a Green Card holder’s permanent residence or green card status, it is still important to obtain a correct date for “Residence Since.”  Otherwise, there may be USCIS processing delay when such a Green Card holder apply for U.S. naturalization.  Spouses of U.S. citizens may apply for naturalization after three years of permanent residency in addition to meeting other immigration criteria.
