arrowGlobal Entry - Renewal from 2 year to 10 year GC

Hi VJ Wise Folks,


I was approved for global entry with the conditional 2-year green card, which eventually expired. Now I'll be receiving my ten year green card.


My question is: how do I renew global entry with the new ten year green card? Does it suffice to go online to my GOES account and update the new green card details? Or do I need to physically update my green card in one of the global entry enrollment centers? I am traveling in a week so I'd like to get all my ducks in a row.



Happy Chic.

arrowI 129 on hold because of security checks??

I got a letter from USCIS:


On July 26, 2016, you or your representative contacted USCIS concerning your Form I-129F to notify us that you were requesting an expedited review of your case. Below is a summary of what we found and how the issue has been or may be resolved.


We have placed your case on a processing hold because the required security checks remain pending. Until we receive the results of these security checks, we cannot move forward on your case. We require the results of security checks before we make a decision on any pending case.


We cannot predict when we will receive the results of these security checks. Please be assured that we will make every effort to make a decision in your case as soon as the security checks are complete.


Anyone had it before?

I'm waiting since April.

arrowOut of country for 3 months during ROC

Hi Everyone,


We sent in our ROC package to VSC about 3 weeks ago. We got our NOA1 on 7/14 and received our biometrics appointment yesterday for 8/8. Starting in early September until early December, my husband and I will be going out of the country and traveling around Europe and Asia (quitting our jobs) because we know that we want kids in the very near future so figure this is really our last chance to take advantage of our youth sans children.


My question: is it bad if we're out of the country for 3 months? Is there any chance they'll call us for an interview during this time? Since VSC is so backed up, I figure the only communication we might get is an RFE, but my parents could deal with that for us worst case.


Also, we will be applying for citizenship next July (he got his conditional GC in Oct 2014 so 3 years -90 days would be early July 2017). I see that you have to have resided in the US for 18 out of the last 36 months. Would it look bad if we were out of the country for 3 months? I know it's not 6 months but would that raise a red flag? Aside from going to France for 10 days my husband has been in the US since he arrived in Oct 2014, so this would be our only extended time outside of the US.


Thanks for your help

arrowParis: Administration Processing?

Hey Everyone,


I had my interview for CR-1 visa this morning at the US Embassy in Paris. Consular Officer told me my visa was approved and I will receive my passport in 7 to 10 business days with the visa stamp. 


I just checked CEAC and it now says "Administrative Processing". I've read a lot of horrible stories about administrative processing with people being stuck for weeks and even months on end without any reason being given.


I'm wondering if a few days of "administrative processing" is the case for every visa and the CEAC will switched to issued in a few days? or should I brace for some possibly longer delays??


Would love to hear from other people in Paris and other embassies!

Thanks a lot
