What Is a Green Card?


Jun 1, 2018

A “green card,” issued by U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS), provides proof of lawful permanent resident status, with authorization to live and work anywhere in the United States. Most green cards must be renewed every ten years, but some conditional green cards based on marriage or investment must be made permanent after the first two years.
