What is a Green Card?

  • and to work

in the United States.

After being a Green Card holder for at least 5 years, you can file for a U.S. citizenship.

The term "Green Card" is coined from the card having a greenish color during its early years and has change its color for a while after being reverted back to the greenish design recently.  The Green Card is actually formally called United States Permanent Resident Card (USCIS Form I-551), and is formerly known as Alien Registration Card or Alien Registration Receipt Card (INS Form I-151).
