How long after entry into the US with CR-1 do you get entered into the "system"

9 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

My wife entered over a week ago on her Permanent Resident VISA and we are having her belongings shipped to us. However the mover called immigration and said she is still not entered into the system. How long does this process usually take?

Secondly, I assume once her name is entered into the system, the US will issue her a SSN (which will be sent a few weeks later).

Thanks!

Sometimes it can take a few weeks. It depends what system the movers are speaking of. To get her SSN you need to go to the SS office today or tomorrow and file. Card should come in 2 weeks. The green crad if you have paid the $165 should come in 8 weeks you can track it on the ELIS system you paid it on.

Yes...go to the social security office. I know some people do get their number because they checked the box on the 260, but some do not...like my husband. We could have had his number two weeks earlier if we would not have waited the suggested 3 weeks before contacting social security...Then we got his number in one week.

I got my ssn card in the mail 2 weeks after I entered the US with a CR1 and my actual green card about 1,5 months.

I paid Elis 2 months before I arrived though... So it might affect the delay (but it might not). and it was in January, less busy than June.

if the system = 'SAVE', then a minimum of 2 weeks past the POE date for a CR-1/IR-1 visa holder.

She will not get an I-94.

She needs to send a copy of her endorsed visa to the mover that shows she is a legal permanent resident and her stuff can be moved.

alas, CR-1/IR-1 visa holders do not get an I-94, so if the shipper is seeking that, well, sorry, it doesn't exist.

you might seek, instead, a copy of her SAVE record, if'n you go to the SSA office to chase the SSN, apply with SS form SSA-5, then whilst there

ask the clerk to PRINT OUT the SAVE database record on her,

then fax that to the shipping company, with a letter of explanation that CR-1 visa holders do not ever receive an I-94.
