USCIS announced it has redesigned the Permanent Resident Card—commonly known as the “Green Card”—to incorporate several major new security features. For the first time in 50 years, the card will actually be green in color. The redesign is the latest effort by USCIS to deter immigration fraud. The government hopes that “state-of-the-art technology” incorporated into the new card will prevent counterfeiting. Effective May 11, 2010, USCIS will issue all Green Cards in the new, more secure format. Those who have older versions of the card will be keep them until they expire and then exchange them for the newer version.
