How to extend the validity of the green card

The green card is a certificate of a permanent resident of the United States who does not have the citizenship of this state. The presence of a green card gives foreign persons the right to stay and work in the United States of America.

Ways to apply for the renewal of the green card:

How to extend the green card while being outside the US
