The United States Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) announced that it is sending text and email messages between the dates of September 17, 2018, and September 20, 2018, about filing the Form I-90, Application to Replace Permanent Resident Card online [PDF version].

A lawful permanent resident whose Permanent Resident Card (“Green Card”) has expired or is about to expire may file the Form I-90 for a replacement online. This also applies if the permanent resident needs to obtain a replacement Green Card for another reason. We discussed a new “mobile filing option” for the Form I-90 in a post last year [see blog].

It is important to note that conditional permanent residents whose Green Cards are about to expire do not use the Form I-90. Instead, they most use either the Form I-751, Petition to Remove Conditions on Residence or the Form I-829, Petition by Entrepreneur to Remove Conditions, depending on the basis of conditional permanent residency.

The USCIS reminded permanent residents and others using USCIS services to “only use websites ending in .gov for official information from USCIS.” It made clear that USCIS never asks for personal information in texts or emails.
