01 Aug USCIS Introduces Mobile Form for Replacing Green Cards
Welcome to the digital age, USCIS! USCIS is now allowing lawful permanent residents who would like to renew or replace their green cards without the help of an attorney or accredited representative to file an online Form I-90, Application to Replace Permanent Resident Card, and upload evidence entirely on their mobile devices. The redesigned online form not only brings convenience to the process of renewing or replace green cards, but also provides a more user-friendly platform for lawful permanent residents to navigate the site.
Submission of evidence may be easier, as applicants may take a photo of the evidence and upload it directly from their mobile devices. The new mobile-responsive design also offers a more personalized user experience, as applicants are directed to answer only those questions specific to their cases.
The Service stated that there are no substantive changes to the policy or content of the form, and the online version has parity in its questions.
Applicants will need a USCIS online account to access the online Form I-90. There is no cost to set up an online account.
There is no change to applicants who wish to file Form I-90 with the assistance of an attorney or accredited representative as they will continue to use the previous version of the online Form I-90.
