Is it normal? Got GC appointment without EAD

Filed: Timeline

I got my Green Card appointment within a normal time line; it will be in 20 days from now on. But there has been no word about EAD work permit and travel document. There is no update on USCIS website or phone service either. I had an impression that work permit comes before the green card appointment. Otherwise, it lost the point.

Is this normal? Anyone has the same experience?


AOS Storyline:

---------- I-751 ----------

[July 11, 2012]: Biometrics appointment. [Day 42]

[June 27, 2012]: Received biometrics appointment notice. [Day 28]

I couldn't tell, but sometimes they skip stuff from NOAs to Acceptance letters.

Worse come the worst, you can wait 1 more month and you will have the green card in your hands :)

See my timeline... I received the interview letter way before anything was done for the EAD or I-131. I however received my I-131 recently and the status for my EAD changed to document production. You should be receiving both of them hopefully, otherwise if the gap between your application submission and interview date is less, maybe you'll just get your GC after your interview :) ... Good luck :thumbs:
