GREEN CARD SIGNATURES UNNECESSARY

Rate this Entry
by Maria Schneider

Green Cards (also known as Permanent Resident Cards) do not always include the Permanent Resident’s signature on the face of the card. Beginning in February 2015, the USCIS began waiving the signature requirement for individuals who filed for their Green Card from abroad through the Embassy or Consulate in the home country. The USCIS may waive the signature requirement in other limited circumstances, such as for children under the age of 18 or individuals physically unable to provide a signature.

When the Green Card is issued without a signature, the card will say “Signature Waived” on the front and back of the card where a signature would normally be located.





Green Cards identify the holder as a Lawful Permanent Resident of the United States and are proof of identity and work authorization. Green Cards which say “signature waived” are valid for I-9 purposes, as long as the Green Card is unexpired.
