I think you are supposed to allow for 4 weeks. If not call the USCIS info line or make an infopass appointment.

Given your status, you'll be better off in the CR-1/IR-1 forum though. They probably know better.

You can start calling them four weeks after arrival. Just call the main 800 # at the USCIS. They will ask for your A# and then transfer you to a "specialized agent". That agent will ask you again for the A# and tell you what the status is. It can take up to 8 weeks after POE for them to process all the paperwork and send you the greencard and Welcome Letter to your house.

A#?

Is that the one that was written by the US Immigration Officer @ the POE?

Actually, you even have A# on your immigrant visa = look under Registration number.

The only thing the US IO would have written at POE is the class of admission (CR1, IR1..) and date.

Give them 6 weeks before you call and ask about status. Also, check out my signature to see what I had to go through before I got my GC.

Finally received my wife's green card...

took nearly 3 months!! So disappointed with USCIS..

On the DS-230 they asked you a question on where do you want the green card to be delivered and my wife answered that correctly with our correct address.

On the Visa Data Summary sheet our address was wrong.. So we called the US Embassy Manila and they said its going to be fine, no hassle.

Upon POE we told the POE officer also that the Address is wrong on the Visa Data Summary sheet, she took the correct address and entered it on her computer.

After a month and still no welcome letter and of course no green card. We called USCIS and they told us, they have sent the Welcome letter to the address provided and I asked them what address was that and they told me the wrong address..

So incompetent.. I had to argue my wife's case stating why ask the question on the DS-230 if their not even going follow it.

Well the bottom line is this fairy tale story has finally ended and we finally got my wife's green card..

Thank You all for all your help... This was a great forum to share my journey..

And to others out there.. Have a safe and successful Journey..

Visa Journey has been part of my life..
