On Tuesday, May 11, 2010, the USCIS Homeland Security introduced the new look of the Green Card (see frontal view below) for those who will pass the Processing for USA Permanent Residency status.
The "State-of-the-art technology prevents counterfeiting, obstructs tampering, and facilitates quick and accurate authentication of the card. Beginning today, USCIS will issue all Green Cards in the new, more secure format." - USCIS Fact Sheet dated May 11, 2010.
For its purposes and intents, this 21st Century US Green Card is a very sophisticated as it bears the important information of the card holder and many historical facts about the United States.
Effectively upon release of the Fact Sheet, the USCIS notified that new Green Card Holders will be receiving this 'State-of-the-art US Green Card'.
Who is a US Lawful Permanent Resident (LPR) ?
"A permanent resident is someone who has been granted authorization to live and work in the United States on a permanent basis. As proof of that status, a person is granted a permanent resident card, commonly called a "green card." You can become a permanent resident several different ways. Most individuals are sponsored by a family member or employer in the United States. Other individuals may become permanent residents through refugee or asylee status or other humanitarian programs. In some cases, you may be eligible to file for yourself." - USCIS Green Card (Permanent Residence)
It is suggested that any employer who will petition for a Green Card must become aware of the complex and multiple requirements and stages of the Green Card Processing which ultimately result to the issuance of the Green Card. Seek the guidance of experienced Corporate Immigration Professional / HR Specialist for relevant corporate compliance and an Immigration Attorney for the many legal facets of the Sponsorship Procedure.
