48-Month Extension for Conditional Green Card Holders

 




Conditional residents who properly filed their extension applications will get 48 months of extension of their resident status, according to an announcement today by USCIS.  The filing receipt and the expired Green Card will serve as evidence of the extension.  The effective dates are as follows:

Conditional residents based on marriage: Starting 01/25/2023, the filing receipt of a properly filed Form 751 will contain language extending their green cards for 48 months.

Conditional residents based on investment:  Starting 01/11/2023, the filing receipt of a properly filed Form I-829 will contain language extending their green cards for 48 months.

USCIS will also issue new receipt notices to eligible conditional residents who have already filed their I-751 and I-829 applications.
