New Green Cards

Let’s welcome the new Green Card! For the past several years, the color of the Green Card has remained a light shade of pink. On May 11, 2010, U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services announced that it has completely redesigned the card, adding new and enhanced features. Among its many improvements, the Green Card is finally going to be the color green. USCIS has begin to issue all Green Cards in the new format from May 2010 onwards. Those non-green colored Green Cards issued before May 2010 will still continue to be valid before their expiration. Card holders will receive the redesigned green-colored Green Cards upon renewal or replacement. If your card does not have an expiration date, USCIS recommends that you replace your card to obtain the new green-colored Green Card. Currently, the filing fee for renewal or replacement is $370.
