Replacement Green Card Filing Procedure

The U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) has modified its procedure for applicants who apply to replace or renew Permanent Resident Cards, commonly known as "green cards." The new procedure will require applicants to mail Form I-90 to a special lockbox processing facility. The addresses for the lockbox facility are as follows:

  • For U.S. Postal Service (USPS) deliveries:
    U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services
    P.O. Box 54870
    Los Angeles, CA 90054-0870

  • Or for non-USPS deliveries (e.g. private couriers):
    U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services
    Attention: I-90
    16420 Valley View Avenue
    La Mirada, CA 90638

In addition to the Form I-90, applicants must enclose an Application Fee of $450, which includes the biometric fee. Applicants should not include any other initial evidence or supporting documentation when filing the form with the lockbox facility. Instead, all applicants will receive by mail a notice for a biometrics processing appointment at a local Application Support Center (ASC) and will be required to submit their initial evidence during this appointment. The biometrics notice will contain a list of the documents which applicants will be required to bring to the appointment.
