What is the Form I-90?

How can you file Form I-90?

If you need to replace or renew your green card. If you are a permanent resident whose 10-year green card has expired or will be expiring in the next 6 months, or if your green card has been stolen, lost, destroyed or damaged in any way, these are your options:

You may file form i-90 online if:

  • Your green card has been stolen, lost, destroyed or damaged.
  • Your green card has been mutilated.
  • Your green card will expire in the next six months or before.
  • Your green card is already expired.
  • Your personal information has changed.
  • You have an invalid version of the green card.
  • You are a “commuter”, you live in either Mexico or Canada and only travel to the U.S. for work.
  • Your immigration status will be replaced with “green card holder”.

You may file form I-90 only by mail if:

  • You are applying for a reduced fee or fee waiver.
  • Your previous green card was issued but you never received it.
  • Your green card contains any error made by the USCIS
  • You received a 10 year green card before the age of 14 and it will not expire before you turn 16.

To better illustrate you we’ve come up with some brief examples:

Andres has a green card that is valid for 2 years, is he eligible to file form I-90 in order to renew it?
  • No, Andres is not able to file form I-90 because his green card is valid for 2 years, meaning he is a conditional permanent resident. He would have to file form I-751 or I-829.
Lucia is about to turn 14 and her mom wants to renew her green card even though it will expire in four years. Is it possible for Lucia to file form I-90 and renew her green card?
  • Yes, she is able to do it but if she renews her green card in the next 30 days after she turns 14 she won't be able to do it online since they will wave her filing fee.
Sam decided to change his middle name but he does not know what to do since his green card does not match his actual middle name. Is he able to file Form I-90?
  • Yes, Sam can file the form I-90 and he must renew it as fast as possible since it would not be a valid green card because the personal information in it does not match the legal one.
