Need guidance post-interview stage

5 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

Hello friends,

I wanted clarity over the process "what happens after immigration visa is approved".

I have my visa interview at Madras on 23rd May, and I am confident that the interview

will result in an approval, as we had recently filed our daughter's CRBA and got

her US citizenship and passport.

After my visa approval, we intend to travel to the US before June 15th.

Now, here are my questions:

0. Who decides my POE to the US? I filed thru' Vermont and my US address is in NY, but

will be travelling latter to CA in search of a job.

1. I need to start working as soon as possible in the US, so what should the immediate

action for me to get work-permit? How long will it take to get my work-permit?

2. When should I file for an SSN #, will I be given a temp. SSN # as soon I enter US (NY)?

Thanks for your help,

Raghuram

Your POE will be the airport where you first land in the USA, so the travel arrangements you make will determine this.

Your green card and social security card should arrive by mail within a month of your entry. Those are all you'll need in the way of "work-permit".

My husband was able to go to a social security office within 2 weeks of his arrival to get his card. You could try to go to the office in person. You will need to wait at least a week for immigration to process and have you in the system.

Going to the SS office should not be necessary if the DS230 is properly completed. Of course, it does no harm.

And if they actually send your social security card. When I was going through the process alot of people did not receive their card in the mail. They had to go down and apply for it. Unless things have improved in the two years I would recommend just going down there.
