Lawful permanent residents who file an Application to Replace their Permanent Resident Card (a form I-90), can now file their form and upload evidence entirely on a mobile device. Permanent residents will now find that navigating the online process is simpler, making the process of renewing or replacing Green Cards more convenient.

The new mobile-responsive design allows permanent residents who are trying to replace or renew their permanent resident cards to navigate through the different sections of the form, and the ability to upload evidence directly from their mobile device. Instructions for filing Form I-90 require providing certain evidence (for example, a government issued ID). This new platform allows applicants to take a photo of the evidence and upload it directly from their mobile devices.

According to USCIS, the redesigned online form also provides a more personalized experience, as users are directed to answer only those questions specific to their case. Furthermore, there are no substantive changes to the policy or content of the form, and the online version has parity with the questions and content on the paper form.

Applicants can file an online I-90 by first creating a free USCIS online account at https://myaccount.uscis.dhs.gov. This account also allows applicants to track the status of an application and to communicate with USCIS through a secure inbox.

For any questions about the replacement or renewal process, applicants are encouraged to contact us at Fok Immigration Law for a free case evaluation.
