2-4 weeks.

HOWEVER, Notice the notation on visa about I-551? This indicates passport will serve as a temporary green-card for up to 1 year.

Thanks all & Loto.. One headache is done and now second one starts regarding name change.

I called USCIS and they said wait for the welcome letter to arrive. If the name is incorrect on the welcome letter (which it will be because it is incorrect on visa), then call USCIS back and ask them to correct it.

I don't have to worry about correcting the name change on Visa right, since it is only valid for 6 months?

Thanks,

You don't have to worry about it on the visa, hotzone.

Check it out in the plastic card. If it is correct, headache is over. Hope it will be correct in GC.
