USCIS recently announced the launch of a new mobile option for filing a Form I-90, Application to Replace Permanent Resident Card. This is only for applicants who are not using an attorney. Applicants who are getting help from an attorney or authorized representative must continue to use the regular I-90.
Applicants can now file their form and upload evidence entirely on a mobile device. According to USCIS, the redesign of the online Form I-90 also allows permanent residents to navigate the site more easily, making the process of renewing or replacing Green Cards more convenient.
"The new mobile-responsive design provides an intuitive method for answering questions, navigating through sections, and uploading evidence on a mobile device. Instructions for filing Form I-90 require providing certain evidence, such as a copy of government-issued identification. For those filing through a mobile device, it may be easier to take a photo of the evidence and upload it directly from their mobile devices. The redesigned online form also provides a more personalized experience, as users are directed to answer only those questions specific to their case."
Applicants can access the online Form I-90 through myUSCIS by creating a USCIS online account at https://myaccount.uscis.dhs.gov/. There is no cost to set up an account.
