Green Card and SSN after arriving on IR5

5 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

After my mother-in-law is coming on an IR5 immigrant visa in a few weeks. Once she clears the POE, does she have to do anything prior to getting her green card (e.g. biometrics appointment at ASC?

Also, she indicated on her immigrant visa application that she wasnts to apply for a social security number. How long after she goes through the POE should she expect to wait before getting her new social security card?

Nothing needed to get green-card, it will be in the mail a few weeks later.

As for SSN, you can always wait a few weeks to see if it shows up in the mail, and if not then visit SSA office and apply for one.

My dad recently came in on his IR5. It took a week or 2 for him to get his SSC and the greencard came not long after. Great news to know that your mom should be here soon. Tell her to enjoy the first few weeks that she is here waiting to get these things.

Well, she made it here. She is now officially a permanent resident - although they stamped tomorrow's date on her passport as the date of admission for some reason. Does that mean she's technically here illegally until tomorrow? :)

The information sheet they gave her didn't say anything about a SSN having been requested for her already. It just says she can now apply for one. I guess we'll give it a week or two and see what happens. The sheet also says she may not get her green card for another three to six months. I'm assuming that's just to make USCIS look good when it shows up much sooner than that.

USCIS may have set a new record. My mother-in-law's green card showed up in the mail just nine days after her arrival in the US. It even got here before her social security card .
