What is a Conditional Green Card?

  • A beneficiary’s permanent resident status is conditional if it is based on a marriage that was less than 2 years old on the day that the beneficiary became a permanent resident; conditional permanent resident status is given when the beneficiary is either admitted to the U.S. on an immigrant visa or adjusts the beneficiary’s status to that of a permanent resident.


  • With certain exceptions through waivers, both spouses generally need to jointly petition to remove the conditions within 90 days before the second anniversary of the beneficiary’s admission as a permanent resident, and failure to do so will result in the termination of the beneficiary’s conditional permanent resident status.


  • Conditional resident status is not renewable nor eligible for extension.
