My Wife received her CR-1 visa in May. She was called in to the local USCIS office in June to verify biometrics.. Does anyone have any idea how long it typically takes to get the actual green card in the mail? It going on 3 months.

Usually within 1 month after entry. Make in info-pass appointment if you haven't received it after a month.

local biometrics? OUCH !

It's rare, but it happens, after coming in...
Near as I can recall, was some issue with fingerprinting back at the US Embassy, but -
they didn't tell her it was any problem.

Good luck - this could take a while, as things slow down now, if any biometrics after POE.

Luckily, though, she's got the STAMP in the passport, validates the VISA to be used as a temporary I-551 (green card) document, for one year.

With the passport, and a birth certificate, can get into the SSA office, apply for a SSN card.

Sometimes my language usage seems confusing - please feel free to 'read it twice', just in case !
Ya know, you can find the answer to your question with the advanced search tool, when using a PC? Ditch the handphone, come back later on a PC, and try again.
