Received green card in the mail - We're done until 2008!

16 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

My husband and I were thrilled when we opened our mailbox today after returning from a 4-day trip today and found both his Green Card and Welcome Letter waiting for us. :dance: (The Welcome Letter was only postmarked July 25th, even though the e-mail notice we got said that it was mailed July 21st.)

After studying and admiring the card for many minutes, we found all the info correct (and the hologram is cool!). Interestingly, the date given for when my husband's residency began is several weeks before we actually received the e-mail about his case being approved.

We had no interview since our case was transferred to CSC and overall the process went quite smoothly for us. We also know that we couldn't have made it through without the resources here at Visajourney.

Thanks to all of you for your help and we wish all those of you who are still waiting a speedy approval/resolution to your case! :)
