If My Green Card Expires While I am Applying for Naturalization, Do I Still Need to Apply for a New Card?

If you apply for Naturalization on Form N-400, 6 months or more before the expiration date on your Permanent Resident Card (formerly known as an Alien Registration Card or “Green Card”), you do not have to apply for a new card. However, you may apply for a renewal card if you wish by filing Form I-90, Application to Replace Permanent Resident Card and paying the appropriate fee.

If you are applying for Naturalization less than 6 months before the expiration date on your Permanent Resident Card, or do not apply for naturalization until your card has already expired, you must renew your card.

If you are interested in the Naturalization process, please read more on our website, or contact our U.S. immigration attorney for a FREE consultation.
