No I 551 stamp.

hello all,

I need some advice here. I am a bit concerned. My POE was about two weeks ago at JFK. I happened to look through my passport just now and noticed there was no stamp. I am pretty sure I have seen an actual stamp in other passport with an expiration date like the one at the link below

http://www.***removed***/greencard/sample-temporary-green-card-stamp-i-551.html

Usually on the page above (adjacent ) to the immigrant visa. I don't have that stamp. I only have a stamp with the date I was admitted into the USA. I don't have the stamp anywhere else in my passport.

What do I do? I am very worried here. Do I go back to the airport to immigration?

Yes your visa should have been endorsed. Go to CBP or USCIS local office (make an info-pass) and get the stamp.

Thanks! The only stamp I have is an entry stamp with the date of entry and "f41 d/s" written in pen (by the immigration officer.

The closest USCIS is a couple hours away. CBP is crossing border patrol right? Basically the immigration officers at the airport?

This is your temporary GC as the visa with the endorsement converts the visa into a temporary I-551 which you can use until the physical GC arrives after you pay the Elis fee. Nothing you need to do.

As long as that stamp is on the page beside the visa sticker in your passport that's all you need.
