What Should I Do If My Green Card Is Expiring? (Video)

If my Green Card is expired, does that mean I am no longer a legal permanent resident?



Green Cards and Permanent Residencies

A Green Card is a document to help you prove your legal permanent residency and that also serves as a travel document that allows you to enter in and out of the United States. There are 2 types of legal permanent residencies:

  1. A Conditional Legal Permanent Residency: A Green Card that expires in 2 years and cannot be renewed.
  2. A Legal Permanent Residency with no conditions: A Green Card that expires in 10 years and can be renewed.
