Because of the production error, the affected Green Cards were printed with incorrect “Resident Since” dates. The affected Green Cards were mailed between February and April of 2018.

The USCIS will notify individuals who received incorrectly dated Green Cards and their attorneys of record, if applicable. Upon receiving notice, the individual should return his or her incorrectly dated Green Card to the USCIS in the provided pre-paid envelope within 20 days of receiving the notice. In the alternative, an individual who receives notice that he or she has an incorrectly dated Green Card may return his or her Green Card in-person to a USCIS field office. The USCIS will send a new correctly dated Green Card within 15 days of receiving the incorrectly dated Green Card.

It is important to note that receiving an incorrectly dated Green Card in no way implicates the Green Card holder's status as a lawful permanent resident of the United States. If an affected individual needs to travel internationally or prove his or her lawful permanent resident status for any other purpose while he or she waits for a replacement Green Card, the individual may contact the USCIS Contact Center at 800-375-5283 for guidance on whether he or she will need additional proof.
