:star: Congratulations, Wifey246 for getting your 10yr green card (so quickly too)! :star:

In regards to the country of origin error on your new green card, in my opinion, I don't think it would cause much of a problem, as it is not a major error. The only reason I can think of that it would cause problems is if you use your green card a lot for travelling and that is your only form of ID that you have. If you have other ID, such as a passport and/or a birth certificate or other foreign ID card, that states what your country of origin is, then you can show that too, along with your green card with the error on it, and hopefully it shouldn't cause a lot of problems. Besides, if you do go for citizenship soon, realize then that you'll have to surrender/give back this 10yr card in order to get your citizenchip certificate. So if you don't want to worry about it now, you can keep it until citizenship, and give back this card with errors on it then.

Nevertheless, if you are bothered by it, and you don't think that this error is right, you should definitely get it changed, by sending in an I-90 form (maybe with a note too, explaining what the error is). They should get it changed for you for free, as it was an typing error on their part and not yours. You'll probably get your new error-free green card quickly, so you'll only have to part with it for a short time. And when you send it back, think of it as you'll get a newer one instead, that is error-free.

On a personal note, I wish both my green cards (the 2yr one and the 10yr one) said "unknown" as the country of origin. Want to trade green cards with me (just kidding)? You wouldn't believe the problems it has caused me, to have a different country of origin (birth country, which I have no current ties to) on my green card, and then to have a different country (country of citizenship, Canada, which I am currently tied to) on my passport and other documents. Hmm...if I had known, maybe I should have put "unknown" under the country of birth/origin when I filled out the I-751 application. Oh well, that's ok, as I'll surrender/give back my green cards when I get citizenship. Thank goodness the certificate of naturalization does not state the country of birth/origin on it (At least from what I heard, it doesn't state that. Can anyone else clarify this again for me?).

Whatever way you choose to fix you green card error, I wish you the best. And good luck too, on the rest of your immigration journey!

Just to be safe, I think I would call the USCIS information (or mis-information) line to see if the "unknown" is a problem or not. You'd certainly hate to leave the country and try to return only to be turned back!

FWIW, there was a mistake on my husband's green card, too. We just sent in the I-90 and were told by the info line that it could take up to 6 months to get the corrected card :angry: . So much for better service from our increased fees, eh?

Thanks for the replies. I agree, it doesnt seem like a major error. And obviously USCIS's error.

I guess I should just hold on to it. I have only a 7-month wait to qualify for naturalization. Can't risk not getting it back by then if I request for correction.

I may have to travel. Oh well, I'll take my chances. And I'll let you guys know what happens.
