How to Get an I-551 Visa Stamp?

9 posts in this topic Register to Ask a Question

Can I ask for the stamp at the interview? Pending it goes well and we are approved on the spot?

You can ask but they don't usually approve on the spot any more. They might SAY you're approved but then they'll tell you pending review or something like that. By all means ask though!

Think of it as going to a job interview, being hired, and while being guided to the door and shaking the hand of the interviewer you are asking for a payday advance.

mmm... not quite, the analogy would be asking for the job offer in writing on the spot... at my workplace they would only mail you the offer letter after everyone involved has signed off, other employers can do it right away. So, no, it doesn't tantamount to asking for money in advance. It doesn't look bad to ask.

When we had our interview on september 7, 2011, I asked the IO for the stamp in my passport, but he told me that they stopped doing this because the GC where being delivered in a short period as two weeks. And that was true, I received my GC in less than two weeks.

And they also gave me a letter saying that if I needed a temporary evidence of my status (LPR) I could make an appointment with the infopass and they could provide me the proof (need to bring the letter, photo identification and a valid passport of the country of citizenship).
