USCIS Begins Issuing Redesigned Green Cards

May 24, 2017 • Zach DiSchiano

U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) announced a redesign to the Permanent Resident Card—also known as a Green Card—as  well as the Employment Authorization Document (EAD). These changes come as part of the Next Generation Secure Identification Document Project.

In the new design, the card displays the individual’s photos on both sides and shows a unique graphic image and color palette. There’s an image of the Statue of Liberty and a predominately green palette. EAD cards will have an image of a bald eagle in a mostly red palette.

The card also has embedded holographic images and no longer displays the individual’s signature.

USCIS began issuing the new cards on May 1. For more information, visit the USCIS website.
