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.
