Recommended Posts

I entered US on 17th April. My wife paid Green Card Fees on 3rd April.

#How much time it will take to have Green Card??

i went to Social Security Office After 5 days of entry, and he asked if u have work permit or not?? I dnt have any idea abt that bt i told yes i have. He went inside and checked, and told Yes u have.. I just took my Passport coz i gave all my documents on POE. I dnt know what other document they are asking in SSO.. And he told me to come after 10 days. After almost 12 days we went again and this time lady was there. She also asked same about Work Permit and documents. She also went inside and checked and came back and asked me my greencard. I told i have applied. She told me that bring your green card then only u can apply... I dnt know what kind of staffs they keep on such offices....

I received my green card within two weeks of arrival. They took my finger print and signature at POE. Once visited to SSO, I receive my SSN within 1 week of time. It shouldn't take so long.

You don't need the GC to apply for a SS#. They just need your passport with the visa and entry stamp and your original birth certificate and original marriage certificate (if you're a female using your married name). That's all that was asked from me when I went to the SSA office.

You can check my signature for my timelines.
