My Green Card was Lost or Stolen
If your green card has been lost or stolen, you’ll need to replace it immediately. You are legally required to carry your green card with you if you are age 18 or older.
If you believe the green card was stolen, immediately report it to USCIS. You should also contact your local police department to file a report. This will serve as an important record if someone attempts to fraudulently use your card.
Quick Tip: If you are a conditional permanent resident through marriage to a U.S. citizen, don’t try to replace your green card if it expires within the next six months. Instead, file Form I-751, Petition to Remove Conditions on Residence, 90 days before your card expires.
How to Replace a Lost/Stolen Green Card
To replace your lost or stolen green card, you will need to file Form I-90, Application to Replace Permanent Resident Card.
When you file Form I-90 with USCIS, you’ll need to submit a photocopy of both sides of your green card.
