I-551 Green Card with No Expiration Date


The I-551 Green Card is the current version of the Lawful Permanent Resident Card. However, there is a lot of confusion on whether the “no expiration date” green cards are still valid.

If the I551 was issued between 1977 and August 1989, the Green Card would have no expiration date, but is still a valid and acceptable Green Card.

This Unexpiring Green Card was the edition between the (1) I-151 Green Card that is no longer valid and (2) the I-551 Green Card that has an expiration date.
