New Green Card

U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services has redesigned the Permanent Resident Card - commonly known as the "Green Card" - to incorporate several major new security features.

They've begun issuing all Green Cards in the new format. The redesign is the latest advance in the Immigration Department's ongoing efforts to deter immigration fraud, that officials say will better serve law enforcement, employers, and immigrants.

Among the benefits of the new technology: Secure optical media will store biometrics for rapid, reliable identification of the card holder. Holographic images, laser engraved fingerprints, and high resolution micro-images will make the card nearly impossible to reproduce. Additionally, Radio Frequency Identification capabilities will allow Customs officers at ports of entry to read the card from a distance and compare it immediately to file data.
