How to Renew a Green Card:
Permanent Resident Card, commonly known as a green card, is evidence of your status as a permanent resident with a right to live and work permanently in the United States. It also is evidence of your registration in accordance with U.S. immigration laws. A green card is also called Form I-551.
When to Renew a Green Card
You should renew your green card if you are a permanent resident with a Form I-551 valid for 10 years and the card is either expired or will expire within the next 6 months.
How to Apply To Renew a Green Card
If you are a permanent resident whose 10-year Form I-551 has expired or will expire within the next 6 months, you may renew your green card.
How to Renew a Green Card If You Are Outside the United States
If you are outside the United States and your green card will expire within 6 months (but you will return within 1 year of your departure from the United States and before the card expires), you should file for your renewal card as soon as you return to the United States.
If you are outside of the United States when the card expires and you have not applied for the renewal card prior to your departure, you should contact the nearest U.S. Consulate, USCIS office, or U.S. port of entry.
