10 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

Hi all, here I am again to get you guys updated on the interview that took place this morning.

To be honest, I was rather nervous going in this morning, but it went really well, and I was approved. My wife and I walked in and out of the room in 15 minutes. We were told that the conditional green card would be arriving in 2-3 weeks. The IO said that meantime I can go ahead and get myself an SSN unless I want to wait till the card arrives, and reminded me of I-751. Ha! Already!

Once again, thanks to those who read my topics and replied in the past. You know who you are. I really appreciate it. :thumbs:


Yes! I am approved!!! :)

It took only two (2) months to be approved. Hooray!

Thanks everyone.

My local USCIS office is located in Albuquerque, NM.

My Timeline is up.

Oh, and I went to the Social Security Administration office this morning. My old SSN, issued back in my college days here in the U.S., has been reactivated (it was deactivated when I returned to Canada), and a newly printed SSN card will arrive in 3-5 days, but still it is only valid for work related. Not for driver's licence, banking and such, according to them. I was told to wait till the conditional green card arrives and go back to get it upgraded. :huh:


Yes! I am approved!!! :)

It took only two (2) months to be approved. Hooray!
