USCIS Updates

On January 23, 2023, USCIS announced the extension of green cards (LPR) for petitioners who properly file Form I-751, Petition to Remove Conditions on Residence or Form I-829, Petition by Investor to Remove Conditions on Permanent Resident Status for 48 months beyond the card’s expiration date. We discuss the announcement of the extension of green cards for Form I-751 and Form I-829 here.

When Does this Change Become Effect?

This change started on January 11, 2023, for Form I-829 and will start on January 25, 2023, for Form I-751.

Updated Receipt Notices

The updated language on Form I-751 and Form I-829 receipt notices extend the validity of Green Cards for 48 months. New receipt notices will be issued to eligible conditional permanent residents who previously received notices with an extension shorter than 48 months and whose cases are still pending.

Proof of Work and Travel Authorization

Updated receipt notices can be used with an expired Green Card as evidence of continued status, while the case remains pending with USCIS. By presenting your updated receipt notice with your expired Green Card, you remain authorized to work and travel for 48 months from the expiration date on the front of your expired Green Card.
