USCIS has announced that as of June 11, 2018, it will issue petitioners who file
- Form I-751, Petition to Remove Conditions on Residence, or
- Form I-829, Petition by Entrepreneur to Remove Conditions on Permanent Resident Status,
a Form I-797 Receipt Notice that can be presented with their Permanent Resident Card as evidence of continued status for 18 months past the expiration date on their Permanent Resident Card.
