A New Look for Green Cards and Employment Authorization DocumentsPublished April 25, 2017
Toward enhancing security and combatting document fraud, U.S. Department of Homeland Security will begin issuing a newly redesigned Permanent Resident Card (“Green Card”) and Employment Authorization Document (“EAD”) starting May 1, 2017. Green Cards and EADs issued prior to the release of the new versions will continue to be honored throughout their validity period.
The new documents will feature the individual’s photos on both sides along with unique graphics, color schemes and embedded holographic images. Green Cards will feature the image of the Statue of Liberty and a mainly green color scheme. EADs will include an image of a bald eagle and a predominately red color scheme. Unlike previous versions of the documents, the newly issued documents will no longer include the card holder’s signature.PUBLISHED April 25, 2017– “IMMIGRATION LAW FORUM” Copyright © 2017, By Law Offices of Richard Hanus, Chicago, Illinois
