Green Cards Without Expiration Dates Should be Renewed

Green Cards Without Expiration Dates Should be Renewed

 

In 2007, U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) presented a proposal to eliminate hundreds of thousands of green cards issued years ago without expiration dates. Although the proposal was never implemented into law, the last seven years have seen a concerted push for immigration officers to strongly advise travelers to renew green cards without expiration dates.  

USCIS believes that replacing all outstanding permanent resident cards without expiration dates is critical to national security. Although green cards issued between 1977 and 1989 which do not have expiration dates are still recognized by USCIS and are still valid, USCIS has stated that it is critical to remove them from circulation.
