green card and ss card

Did you pay the $165 immigant fee? What does the ELIS status say?

It will take a month and a half or more to get the GC. Even up to 6 months.

Wait atleast 10 business days after POE to go to SSA for the SS card. Just bring your passport, birth certificate and marriage certificate (if applicable).

Hi, apple21. Im just waiting for my Visa. Thanks to VisaJourney. Anyways, How will I pay my $165 immigrant fee? Once I receive the Visa Packet, Do they give me instructions there? or can I pay for it while waiting for the visa packet or should I just pay it AFTER I receive it? Thanks

Goodie. All you have to do is wait for it and check ELIS for updates.

You can only pay for it after you've received the visa packet. There will be an instruction paper included or you can also check the ELIS page at the USCIS website.

Even though I indicated on my visa application that I wanted a SS number issued automatically, I still had to go to the SS office to chase it up. The consulate at Frankfurt suggested doing this if the number was not received after three weeks of arrival into the US.
