Green Card – USCIS Announces Redesigned Green Card effective today!!

U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) announced that it has redesigned the Permanent Resident Card—commonly known as the “Green Card”—to incorporate several
major new security features. State-of-the-art technology prevents counterfeiting, obstructs
tampering, and facilitates quick and accurate authentication of the card. Beginning today,
USCIS will issue all Green Cards in the new, more secure format.

I-9 Administrators should become familiar with the new green card, as it is on the List A of Acceptable documents for Form I-9 purposes. M-274, the I-9 Handbook, does not yet have a sample of the new green card.
