Green Card Registry

In some cases where a foreign national has been present in the United States for an extensive period of time, the U.S. government may allow them to receive a green card through registry. In order to be eligible for registry, an individual must have resided continuously in the United States since January 1, 1972, whether lawfully or unlawfully, be a person of good moral character, eligible for naturalization, and not removable or deportable under Section 237(a)(4)(B) of the Immigration and Nationality Act (INA).

The Registry Process

Applying for a green card through registry requires an individual to complete a Form I-485, Application to Register Permanent Residence or Adjust Status.

With this form, they must also provide certain documentary requirements including, but not limited to:

  • Two passport-style photos
  • Form G-325A, Biographic Information (for individuals between 14 and 79 years of age)
  • Copy of government-issued photo I.D.
  • Copy of birth certificate
  • Evidence of entry into the U.S. before January 1, 1972
