On Nov.12, USCIS will make Form I-90, Application to Replace Permanent Resident Card, temporarily available in theUSCIS Electronic Immigration System (USCIS ELIS). USCIS will use a two-stage approach in launching the I-90 capability. The first stage will be a 72-hour limited introduction from 10 a.m. Eastern on Nov. 12 until 10 a.m. Eastern on Nov. 15. As part of this effort, USCIS will process and formally adjudicate any Forms I-90 submitted through USCIS ELIS during the limited introduction. The second stage will occur early in 2015 when the Form I-90 is fully implemented in USCIS ELIS.
Why should one participate?
- Be one of the first to experience USCIS's redesigned electronic application process;
- Submit a Form I-90 application electronically, upload required evidence, and pay the fee all in one transaction;
- Receive access to specific and timely case status information; and
- Provide valuable feedback to help USCIS improve the overall experience with USCIS ELIS.
How does one participate?
Please visit USCIS website during the limited introduction outlined above. Please note the applicant must create a new USCIS ELIS account to participate. Once the account is created, the applicant can begin the I-90 application.
Those who choose to participate must start a Form I-90 application in USCIS ELIS before the limited introduction ends and will have 30 days to complete and submit the Form I-90 application within USCIS ELIS. If one fails to complete the Form I-90 within 30 days, USCIS will delete the online application and the applicant will need to file a paper Form I-90.
Who may participate?
Permanent residents needing to replace or renew their permanent resident card may participate. Those who participate may be asked to complete an anonymous USCIS survey about the experience or participate in a feedback session. Participation in the survey or feedback session is completely voluntary and will not impact the adjudication of the application.
Attorneys and accredited representatives may not file a Form I-90 within USCIS ELIS during the limited introduction. Attorneys, accredited representatives and customers who do not want to file electronically through USCIS ELIS will still be able to file paper Form I-90s.
