Did Immigration change the design of green cards and work permits? Will my green card and work permit still be valid?

By April 28, 2017November 20th, 2020Client Advice, Immigration

Immigration has announced plans to begin issuing green cards (“Permanent Resident Card”) and work permits (“Employment Authorization Document”) that have a new design starting on May 1st, although you may still receive the older version of the green card and/or work permit after that date.

If you are already in possession of an unexpired green card or work permit, you do not need to apply for a new card. Your current card is valid until it expires. Please do not apply for a replacement green card or replacement work permit because it is not necessary.
