Replacing a very old green card

4 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

Aloha,

My manager is an immigrant from the Netherlands. He received a non-expiring green card in 1981. When recently returning from a visit to Holland, the customs agent gave him humbug because the card was so old it didn't have the technology allowing it to be scanned. The agent suggested he replace it. The question is how does he go about doing this??

Mahalo,

Bill

Did the agent also offer to get CIS to waive the $390 it will cost to replace the card?

I don't know about this for sure, but I have my doubts that he has to get a non-expiring card replaced if it is a Form I-551 green card. My understanding is that they switched to Form I-551 from I-151 in the 1970s, and that CIS only requires that these pre-70s Form I-151 cards be replaced. I'd look into this further if I were him before ponying up almost $400.


Meh
