Visa Update

Hi,

Finally (fingers crossed), tomorrow my wife should get her visa (they have her passport and have called her tomorrow to collect it). Once she gets the visa, i am hoping that she will get here on saturday. Now i am confused as to what to do next?

Once she comes here, she goes through customs etc and enters the country. Do we have to file for anything else, (not talking about ssn etc)once she is done with customs? Also, she might have to go to london for a few weeks. Does she have any restrictions traveling going forward?

I would appreciate any help provided.

Thanks

How long have you been married? She is getting a CR-1? If it is a CR-1, you will have to file to remove conditions 90 days before her expiration of the greencard. Other than that, no, nothing else for her to do once she clears customs. As far as her travel...the customs should stamp her passport with the I-551 temp stamp which serves as a temporary green card and she can travel right away.

Hello,

Thanks for your response. We applied for the CR 1 and its been 2 yrs since we have been married, so we dont need to remove any conditions. Usually the green card is mailed in a few weeks, but if she leaves before that, once i get the Green card in the mail. She can come in using that, correct? How long is th Temp visa valid for?

Thanks,

the stamp in the passport, at POE, validates the Visa stamp to be used as a temp I-551 (green card) for one year.

When she comes to the states. All she needs to have is her visa? Does she need the medical report as well?

She also has to have with her the brown envelope that she gets from the embassy. This is mandatory for processing at POE besides her visa.

The Consulate/Embassy will issue her this big packet, a sealed envelope, which will contain the medical report.

She is required to hand this over to a CBP human at the POE.

Good Luck !
