Cr1 didn't get my green card

Recommended Posts

Hi everyone, Im in the us for a week now, I had in my mind that my green card will arrive by the mail in a matter of 7 days but it didn't, I applied for a social security number already they said I'll get it by the mail after tow weeks still waiting. So the question is should I go to the uscis office and ask them about my green card or should I wait more.or what should I do exactly?

Thank you in advance.

did you pay the greencard fee? remember the mail is slower this time of year due to the holidays. sometimes it can take a month. also be sure that USPS knowsthat you live at that address. they will return to sender things like that without it. go Into any post office.

~~moved to general immigration with other like topics from IR1/CR1 process and procedures~~

Not sure where you got the idea that the hard copy green card takes a week, but no one has ever gotten it that fast. 3 weeks was the fastest Ive seen being paid ahead of arrival. Generally it takes 1-6 months. You can use your endorsed visa for anything you need a green card for.

If the SSN doesnt arrive within 2 weeks head to the SSA office to get one. Normally they will mail it out in 1-2 weeks after that.

I agree with everyone and else. There is no such thing as the SSN or green card arriving in a week. Especially this time of year when the mail is super slow.

I got my SSN about 2 weeks after POE and my GC 45 days after POE. Some people wait between 2 to 6 months. Every case is different.

Your welcome notice that came with your visa packet recommends you only call USCIS if you don't get anything in 45 days.

Good luck!

After putting our names on the mailbox my husband and I got our ss cards in 3 days which I thought was pretty quick but it was the 2nd time going back there. Our daughter got hers in 2 weeks

Sheesh talk about no patience just got here in wants it ALL. Give the minimum as has been stated here. My wife waited for about for both I think 1 of them took about 2 weeks. The other about month maybe 6 weeks. Check the timelines if it's on there.

Or maybe he's very eager to contribute to society by finding employment...... just saying.

He doesn't need his plastic green card to do that.

As stated above, an immigrant visa that's been endorsed by CBP at PoE serves as temporary proof of LPR status for up to one year.
