USCIS extends validity of permanent resident status to 1.5 years (previously 1 year) after filing I-751 or I-829

In light of the recent increase in the USCIS processing times for Form I-751, Petition to Remove Conditions on Residence, and Form I-829, Petition by Entrepreneur to Remove Conditions on Permanent Resident Status, beginning June 11, 2018, USCIS will begin issuing Form I-751 or I-829 receipt notices valid for 18 months (previously 12) past the expiration date printed on the conditional Permanent Resident Card (“green card”) after filing a Form I-751 or I-829.

Additionally, USCIS will issue new receipt notices to eligible conditional permanent residents whose Forms I-751 or I-829 were still pending as of June 11, 2018. Those receipt notices will also serve as evidence of continued status for 18 months past the Permanent Resident Card expiration date.
