Effective June 20, Most Green Card Renewal Applicants to Apply at Local INS application Support Centers
Since 1989, the Immigration & Naturalization Service (INS) has been issuing Green Cards (Form I-551, Alien Registration Receipt Card) that expire every 10 years. Lawful permanent residents who were issued a Green Card with an expiration date approximately 10 years ago will need to renew it.
To maximize customer service, effective June 20, 2000, Green Card renewal applicants will have the convenience of one-stop, walk-in service at their local INS Application Support Centers (ASCs).
These new procedures apply only to renewal applicants with expiring/expired 10-year Green Cards. All other applicants filing for a new Green Card (examples include the following: lost, stolen, never received one, correct biographic information, upon turning 14 years old) just apply at their local INS District or Sub-Office, not at an ASC.
In Los Angeles, renewal applications will only be accepted at the following eight INS Application Support Centers which are all open from Tuesday thru Saturday from 8am - 4 pm, and closed on Sunday and Monday.
