When your immigration document is finally approved, it is possible that some of the information on it may be incorrect due to an administrative error.
This error could either be your fault or USCIS’s fault. In most cases, if it was your fault, you will have to pay the fee to get it corrected.
Permanent Resident Card (I-551 or Green Card)
You must file the following documents:
- Form I-90, Application to Replace Permanent Resident Card
On Form I-90, you should mark “2.d.” as the reason for filing (“My card was issued with incorrect information because of a USCIS administrative error. I have attached the incorrect card and evidence of the correct information”).
- You don’t have to pay the fee if the error was the fault of USCIS. If the error was your fault, you need to pay the fee.
- Incorrect Permanent Resident Card (Green Card)
- If possible, a photocopy of the original application you submitted that has the correct information, as proof that your original documentation was correct.
- A statement explaining the error.
If the error was your fault, you must pay the fee. If the error was USCIS’s fault, you don’t have to pay the fee.
Refugee Travel Document, Reentry Permit, or Certificate of Citizenship
To correct a Refugee Travel Document, Reentry Permit, or Certificate of Citizenship, submit a letter along with the incorrect document.
No form or fee is required.
I-94, Arrival-Departure Record
You don’t have to pay the fee if the error was the fault of border inspector or USCIS. You need to pay the fee if the error was your fault.
