USCIS Announces New Filing Procedures for Replacement and Renewal of Green Cards

The USCIS recently announced their new filing procedure for Green Cards. As of May 31, 2005, aliens are required to mail applications to renew or replace Permanent Resident Cards (or Green Cards) directly to the Los Angeles Lockbox. This processing facility will accelerate the collection of Green Card applications and petitions.

As of May 31, all aliens filing a Form I-90, the Application to Replace Permanent Resident Card, no matter their state of residence, will need to mail the applications, along with the application fee ($185) and the biometrics fee ($70) to one of the following 2 addresses:

US Postal Service Deliveries:

U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services
P.O. Box 54870
Los Angeles, CA 90054-0870

Private Courier Deliveries:

U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services
Attention: I-90
16240 Valley View Avenue
Los Angeles, CA 90638

Please note that applicants should not include in this package their initial evidence and supporting documentation. All applicants will receive a notice in the mail for a biometrics processing appointment at an Application Support Center and should submit their initial evidence during that meeting.
