USCIS Extends Evidence of Status for Conditional Permanent Residents with Pending Form I-751


Starting Sept. 4, 2021, U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) began extending the time that receipt notices can be used to show evidence of status from 18 months to 24 months for petitioners who properly file Form I-751, Petition to Remove Conditions on Residence.


Conditional permanent residents who properly file Form I-751 will receive a receipt notice that can be presented with their Form I-551, Permanent Resident Card (also known as a Green Card), as evidence of continued status for up to 24 months past the expiration date on their Green Card, while their case remains pending with USCIS.


Additionally, USCIS announced that they will issue new receipt notices to eligible conditional permanent residents who properly filed their Form I-751 before Sept. 4 and whose cases are still pending. Those receipt notices will also serve as evidence of continued status for 24 months past the expiration date on their Green Card.


The announcement may be found on the USCIS website.
