USCIS Redesigns Green Cards and Employment Authorization Documents
U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) is redesigning permanent resident cards and Employment Authorization Documents (EAD). The agency will start issuing the redesigned cards on May 1, 2017.
Redesigning of these cards is a part of the Next Generation Secure Identification Document Project. The new cards will have fraud resistant security features and enhanced graphics. These new features will make the cards highly secure and tamper-resistant.
• The new cards will display the card holder’s photo on both sides of the card.
• Redesigned cards will have a unique graphic image. Green cards will have predominantly green palette with an image of the Statue of Liberty
