The Green Card has to be renewed after every ten years. If you fail to renew your Green Card, you may encounter many problems. Here are the top 4 problems you may come across in case of your failure to renew your Green Card:
Failure to find employment
If you want to continue working in the US, you need to renew your Green Card. Employers that want to hire new employees normally ask for evidence that you are legally allowed to work in the US. The Green Card is proof that the US government has allowed you to live and work in the US.
Failure to get or renew your driving license
In the US, every state has set out its own rules and regulations for getting or renewing a driver’s license. The general requirement to obtain or renew your driving license is that you must have a valid Green Card.
Not being able to buy a home
If you are a permanent resident of the United States, you can purchase a home on mortgages like the US citizens. While buying a home, the seller will ask you to establish your status in the US. If you are a permanent resident, you would be asked for a Green Card. If your Green Card is expired, you will not be able to buy a home in the US.
Facing troubles while traveling outside the US
A permanent resident with an expired Green Card will face many problems when traveling outside the US. You may not be able to go back to the US if your Green Card expires outside the US. Even if you have a flight ticket, authorities may not let you return to the US on an expired Green Card.
