I applied for my replacement card on 08/15/2019 after having lost my GC 2 days earlier. I applied I90 online and the whole process took 2 months and 3 days to get my new card. Below is my timeline.

08/15/2019 - Applied I90 online (using my DHS online account) and paid the fees online as well during the application.
08/19/2019 - Receipt notice was uploaded online to my I90 form under 'documents' section.
08/23/2019 - Received paper notice for I90 in mail.
08/26/2019 - Biometrics notice was uploaded to my I90 form under 'Documents' section. Appointment was for 09/11/2019.
08/28/2019 - Received paper notice for biometrics in mail.
08/29/2019 - Walked-in for early biometrics as I was travelling out of USA on 09/10/2019. Requested ADIT I551 stamp but was told to get an INFOPASS appointment for ADIT as they don't accept walk-ins. They were ok to do only biometrics for walk-ins.
08/29/2019 - Called USCIS number and asked for a INFOPASS for ADIT stamp. Officer said they will call back within 3 days to schedule it.
09/02/2019 - USCIS called on 09/02/2019 and scheduled infopass for 09/03/2019.
09/03/2019 - Went for infopass and got ADIT stamp on my passport. Stamp given for 1 year validity.
09/10/2019 - Travelled out of USA and returned on 10/02/2019. After I returned, Immigration stopped at airport for 2 hours after looking at my ADIT stamp. Took me into a waiting area and verified my information and then allowed me in luckily.
10/10/2019 - Received status update that the 'Card is being produced.
10/18/2019 - Card was delivered to my mailbox.

Let me know if you have any questions.

I have error on my GC and I did submit my I-90 5 months ago. I did my bio-metrics in June 2019 and after that i didn't heard any thing form USCIS. I requested to expedite process but answer from USCIS is within processing time.

My Question:
Did you expedite request and if yes how ?

I am traveling next month and I have ADIT stamp in my passport.

There is no way to expedite. I was also prepared to wait out 12 months based on I90 processing times but luckily got my card after 2 months. There is no way to predict the timeline.

We just have to wait patiently and hope that the card gets printed. Calling USCIS also would not help. You should try to use the Stamp when you travel. They might stop you for questioning but as long as you have the ADIT stamp they will allow you after verification. So there is no need to worry. Good Luck.

is the expiration date of your new card the same as the expiration date of your old card?


manofsteel     10/30/2019 10:34 AM

No, the new expiration date is 10 years from the date my I90 got approved i.e. 10/10/29 in my case.

thanks. my green card was stolen and i need to apply for a replacement. the card expires december of next year (dec 2020). so i was wondering if i had to apply for a replacement card ...and THEN later apply for a renewal....but it looks like a replacement and renewal are basically the same thing.
