What Is the Cost of US Green Card Renewal?

As of 2015, the total amount due when submitting an application to replace an expired green card or one set to expire within six months is $450, notes U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services. This fee is the composite of a $365 form fee and an $85 biometric services fee.

As of 2015, eligibility for a fee waiver depends upon an applicant meeting one of the following criteria: the applicant or a qualified member of his household is currently receiving a means-tested benefit; household income is at or below 150 percent of the poverty level at the time of filing; or the applicant is experiencing a financial hardship that prevents him from paying the filing fee, including unexpected medical bills or emergencies, according to USCIS. To renew a green card, the applicant files Form I-90, Application to Replace Permanent Resident Card, with USCIS electronically online or through the mail, although Form I-90 applicants seeking a fee waiver may not file their forms online.
