Lost Green card after applying N400

9 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

Asking for a friend she already applied for N400 on August 2019  done with fingerprint. At the end of September she lost her Green Card. Now she has only a photocopy of her Green Card and original is lost. Does she need to renew it and get a new one or it’s ok and she can go for her naturalization exam and ceremony without her original Green Card? Thanks in advance for answers.

Since she lost it before the interview, you must file I-90, pay the fees for a replacement. 

If she had lost it after the interview and before oath, then you could plead your case a little differently.

My notice at n400 interview said something about green card or copy of police report if it’s lost. Not home right now to check.

Thank you for response. She actually asked at finger print office about it and they said it’s fine, not sure why they didn’t give her any info

I heard about police report as well but wouldn’t put it in risk, I think it’s better for her to renew it just in case. Thank you

Biometrics can accept your passport, notice, and driver license. The interview is a lot more strict. 

I know it's over $500 to file for an I90 but i would recommend you bite the bullet and do it.

I had to give away my greencard in exchange for the naturalization certificate. I do not think that the USCIS guys will be happy with only photo copy or scanned greencard document..
