Hello Everyone!

I am wondering if someone can explain a little about the POE process. I know we turn in the sealed packet and the passport but are there any papers from the customs officers that are necessary for us to get? I am trying to avoid any delays in the future.

Also, do they keep the sealed packet?

At the POE.. you mostly do the same things you would do as a visitor to the US, until you get to the security checkpoint in the US. Then, you will both go together through the "foreigners" line and present the officer with your passports and the packet. Most likely you will be referred to the further processing area, so the officer will hand over your paperwork to other officers there. You will wait in a waiting room until they call you up. It may be fast or take a long time, depending if they know what they're doing, but what's a few more hours of waiting after so much! They might ask you some questions, then they will go through all the paperwork in the packet (everything you've turned in to USCIS thus far) and leave you will an I-94 in your passport. You won't get the paperwork back- it stays in your file for AOS. That's it.

So no, you don't need to do any special preparation. Just get ready to get married, file AOS, request SS#...

Thank you!

What is a I-94? and I was reading about some peoples POE experiences and somewhere I read that either you can get a stamp in your passport to work legally for 90 days or is that what the I-94 is? And another thing I read was that after stamping the passport one of the officers said "Welcome to America, you will receive your ss# in about 7 days? Is any of this true?

Hi, The I-94 is the little form you fill out on the plane!usually you give it back when you are leaving the US after a visit so they can keep track of who is there!I think you need to show it with the AOS process!As for the 90 days stamp for working it depends what airport you enter the country at, only certian ones issue it such as New York! As fo social security number you have to wait a week or 2 of being in the country then apply for it as far as im aware, though dont quote me on that.

The I-94 is filled out by you on the plane. It looks like THIS.

Write very neatly so they get your name in the immigration database correctly. The bottom portion is perforated and they will give you back the lower part or staple it in your passport. Don't leave the airport without it. People have accidentally not gotten one. It will have the date of your 90 days on it. It's your key to getting a social security number. You also photocopy it to send in with AOS.

CR1/IR1 spouse visa holders enter the country already approved for a SSN and a greencard. You probably read of somebody like that. A K1 has to go apply at a SS office. See the GUIDES PAGE and find the link in the right column on "How to get a SSN."

Without going into a lot of detail, the temp work stamp has been pretty much dead since the way employers verify work authorization changed a year or more ago. Only JFK was giving them back in 2008 when we did this and all the other airports weren't. I haven't heard lately if they do anymore.
