USCIS News Release

USCIS Will Issue Redesigned Green Cards and Employment Authorization Documents

Release Date: April 19, 2017

Starting May 1, 2017, USCIS will issue newly-designed Permanent Resident Cards (aka Green Cards) and Employment Authorization Cards (aka EAD Cards). The new cards feature enhanced graphics and security-features that are more secure and tamper-resistant than the cards currently in circulation.

The new Green Cards and EADS will:

  • Display the individual’s photos on both sides;

  • Show a unique graphic image and color palette:

    • Green Cards will have an image of the Statue of Liberty and a predominately green palette;

    • EAD cards will have an image of a bald eagle and a predominately red palette;

  • Have embedded holographic images; and

  • No longer display the individual’s signature.
