Welcome back to the start of a brand-new week! In this blog post we share with you an exciting new update from the United States Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS).
Today, January 23, 2023, USCIS announced that it is extending the green card validity period of conditional permanent residents who have a pending Form I-751 Petition to Remove Conditions on Residence or Form I-829 Petition by Investor to Remove Conditions on Permanent Resident Status for EB-5 immigrant investors, as well as those filing new petitions.
What is this all about?
USCIS is extending validity of Permanent Resident Cards (also known as Green Cards) for a period of 48 months (4 years) beyond the green card’s expiration date for petitioners who properly file Form I-751, Petition to Remove Conditions on Residence, or Form I-829, Petition by Investor to Remove Conditions on Permanent Resident Status.
USCIS began to implement this extension on January 11, 2023, for Form I-829 petitioners and has announced that it will start to implement the extension starting on January 25, 2023, for Form I-751 petitioners.
