|Where is the green card?
Read 45 Times
Not sure if this is the right place to post this but....my husband has been in the US since December 25, 2014 and he never received his green card. I paid the $165 fee on December 23, 2014 before he even left Haiti. I have called USCIS several times and have been given the same answer..."Wait a few more weeks." Has anyone else experienced something similar? How long did it take you or your spouse to receive the physical green card? What should I do? Any advice is greatly appreciated.
|Need a primary government ID for Passport or other reasons?
Read 27 Times
I wanted to give back to this community and share a helpful tip. My fiance and I fought tooth and nail to get a primary government ID. You can see in my post history. Long story short, we waited months for SSS ID, Voter's ID, and tried to get the BIR ID on several occasions and never received them.
In mid-March, the PHLPost offers a new "International Postal ID" that the DFA will accept. Keep in mind, it is the Philippines and they don't follow any of the posted rules if they don't feel like it, so your mileage may vary, but we were successful in going this route.
The PHLPost Postal ID Facebook page has a bunch of good info. I'm not sure if it's rolled out everywhere, but this should get you started if you need an ID. From applying to receiving the ID it only took us about 10-15 days and all she needed was a birth cert and possibly a few other easily obtainable documents (possibly police clearance or NBI clearance, which you will need for the Visa anyway).
Hope this helps!!!
