How to Download and Fill Out Form I-90 to Renew or Replace Your Green Card




If you are a lawful permanent resident (LPR) or a conditional permanent resident (CPR) in the United States, you may need to renew or replace your green card at some point. For example, you may need a new green card if your current one is lost, stolen, damaged, expired, or contains incorrect information. You may also need a new green card if you have changed your name or other biographic information since the issuance of your current card.

To renew or replace your green card, you need to file Form I-90, Application to Replace Permanent Resident Card, with the U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS). This form is available for download from the USCIS website. You can also fill out and submit this form online using the USCIS online filing system.


In this article, we will explain how to download and fill out Form I-90 step by step. We will also provide some tips and resources to help you complete this process successfully.


Section 1: Information About You




The first section of Form I-90 asks for your personal information, such as your name, date of birth, address, etc. You need to provide this information exactly as it appears on your current green card or other official documents. If you have changed your name or other biographic information since the issuance of your current card, you need to indicate that in this section.


You also need to provide your Alien Registration Number (A-Number) and Department of State (DOS) Case ID in this section. Your A-Number is a unique identifier assigned to you by USCIS. It is usually printed on your green card and other immigration documents. Your DOS Case ID is a number that identifies your immigrant visa case. It is usually given to you by the U.S. embassy or consulate where you applied for your immigrant visa. If you do not have a DOS Case ID, you can leave this field blank.

Finally, you need to indicate your reason for applying for a new green card in this section. There are different reasons for applying for a new green card, such as:


  • Your previous card was lost, stolen, mutilated, or destroyed.



  • Your previous card was issued but never received.



  • Your existing card has incorrect data.



  • Your name or other biographic information has been legally changed since you got your card.



  • Your card has expired or will expire within six months.



  • You have reached your 14th birthday and need to register your biometrics.



  • You are a commuter who is taking up residence in the U.S. or a resident who is taking up commuter status.



  • You have been automatically converted to permanent resident status.



  • You have a prior edition of the alien registration card.



You need to select the reason that applies to your situation from the list of options provided on the form. If none of the options apply to you, you can select "Other" and explain your reason in Section 8: Additional Information.


Section 2: Application Type




The second section of Form I-90 asks for your application type based on your immigration status. You need to select one of the following options:


  • Permanent Resident: This option is for LPRs who have a 10-year green card that is valid or expired.



  • Permanent Resident (Conditional): This option is for CPRs who have a 2-year green card that is valid or expired. CPRs are LPRs who obtained their status through marriage or investment and are subject to removal of conditions after two years.



  • Commuter: This option is for LPRs who live in Canada or Mexico and commute to the U.S. for work.



You also need to provide additional information depending on your application type. For example, if you are a permanent resident (conditional), you need to provide the date and place of your marriage or investment, and the name and A-Number of your spouse or investor. If you are a commuter, you need to provide the date and place of your first admission as a commuter and the name and address of your employer in the U.S.


Section 3: Processing Information




The third section of Form I-90 asks for your processing information, such as your biographic information, contact information, and special needs. You need to provide this information accurately and completely to avoid delays or denials of your application.


You need to provide your biographic information, such as your gender, height, weight, eye color, hair color, race, ethnicity, and country of birth. You also need to provide your contact information, such as your phone number and email address. You can also indicate if you want to receive text messages or emails from USCIS about your case status.


You also need to indicate if you need an interpreter or an accommodation for a disability. An interpreter is someone who can help you communicate with USCIS in a language other than English. An accommodation is a modification or adjustment to a service or program that allows you to participate fully and equally in the immigration process. For example, you may request an accommodation if you have a physical, mental, or developmental disability that affects your ability to read, write, speak, hear, or see.


Section 4: Accommodations for Individuals With Disabilities and/or Impairments


The fourth section of Form I-90 asks for your accommodation request if you have a disability and/or impairment that requires one. You need to provide details about your disability and/or impairment and the type of accommodation you need. You can choose from the following types of accommodations:


  • Sign language interpreter



  • Oral interpreter



  • Assistive listening device



  • Large print materials



  • Braille materials



  • Other (specify)



You can also explain why you need the accommodation and how it will help you participate in the immigration process. For example, you can write: "I am deaf and I need a sign language interpreter to communicate with USCIS staff during my interview."


Section 5: Applicant's Statement, Contact Information, Declaration, Certification, and Signature




The fifth section of Form I-90 asks for your statement, contact information, declaration, certification, and signature. You need to read and understand the applicant's statement and declaration before signing the form. The statement and declaration explain your rights and responsibilities as an applicant, such as:


  • You are responsible for providing true and correct information on the form and supporting documents.



  • You are responsible for notifying USCIS of any change of address or contact information within 10 days of moving.
