USCIS Extends Validity of Expired Permanent Resident Cards from 12 Months to 24 Months for Renewals
As of Sept. 26, USCIS has further extended the validity of Permanent Resident Cards (PRC) from 12 months to 24 months for lawful permanent residents who have filed Form I-90, Application to Replace Permanent Resident Card, to renew their PRC. Individuals newly filing Form I-90 will receive a Form I-797 receipt notice with the 24-month automatic extension. Individuals who have a pending application will receive an amended receipt notice with the 24-month automatic extension before the initial 12-month extension period expires.
When completing Form I-9, new employees may present an expiring or expired PRC with this receipt notice as a List A document that extends the PRC for 24 months from the Card Expires date on the front of the card. Employers may not reverify current employees who presented this document combination with the original 12-month extension when they originally completed Form I-9.
