    USCIS announced a redesign to the Permanent Resident card (also known as a Green Card) and the Employment Authorization Document (EAD) as part of the Next Generation Secure Identification Document Project. USCIS will begin issuing the new cards on May 1, 2017.

    The redesigns use enhanced graphics and fraud-resistant security features to create cards that are more tamper-resistant than the ones currently in use. The new Permanent Resident cards and EADs will:
    1. Display the individual’s photos on both sides;

    2. Show a unique graphic image and color palette:
    a. Green Cards will have an image of the Statue of Liberty and a predominately green palette;
    b. EAD cards will have an image of a bald eagle and a predominately red palette;
    3. Have embedded holographic images;

    4. No longer display the individual’s signature; and

    5. Also, Permanent Resident cards will no longer have an optical stripe on the back.

    Some Permanent Resident cards and EADs issued after May 1, 2017, may still display the existing design format as USCIS will continue using existing card stock until current supplies are depleted.
