US Citizenship and Immigration Services Unveils New Fraud-Proof Green Cards

United States Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) on Monday, May 1st began issuing newly re-designed tamper-proof Permanent Resident Cards (Green Cards).

The new cards “use enhanced graphics and fraud-resistant security features to create cards that are highly secure and more tamper-resistant than the ones currently in use,” read a press release by the USCIS.

According to the USCIS, the new Green Cards will:

  • Show a unique graphic image and color palette;
  • Have an image of the Statue of Liberty and a predominately green palette;
  • Have embedded holographic images;
  • No longer display the individual’s signature; and
  • No longer have a magnetic stripe at the back.

USCIS says individuals holding the old designs should continue using them until the expiry dates indicated on the cards.
