USCIS Replaces GC Extension Sticker with Notice

Permanent residents filing to extend their green card no longer need to go to an application support center (ASC) to get a sticker for their card. Instead, a revised I-797C receipt notice will be mailed to the address on file. The receipt notice, when presented with the applicant's current green card, serves as proof of status for 12 months from the card's expiration date. This can be used for identity verification, employment authorization, and reentry after foreign travel. Employers can use the receipt and expired green card combination as a "List A" document for proof of work authorization and to fill out form I-9. Essentially, the sticker has been replaced and now no appointment is needed to show valid status for the duration of the pending I-90. Applicants filing from January 2021 onward will simply need to wait for Form I-797C to arrive in the mail. This change is a positive move in light of the pandemic, as it means less exposure for applicants and ASC workers.
