Replace or Renew Green Card - Frequently Asked Questions


What does the law say about Permanent Resident Card?

Section 264 of the Immigration and Nationality Act provides that:

  • Every alien in the U.S. shall be issued a certificate of alien registration or an alien registration receipt card in such form and manner and at such time as shall be prescribed under regulations
  • Every alien, eighteen years of age and over, shall at all times carry with him and have in his personal possession any certificate of alien registration or alien registration receipt card issued to him. Any alien who fails to comply with (these) provisions shall be guilty of a misdemeanor and may be subject to fine and/or imprisonment upon each conviction

Note: If you are a conditional resident and your status is expiring, these instructions do not pertain to you. You are to use Form I-751, Petition to Remove the Conditions on Residence, to apply to remove the conditions on your permanent resident status.
