Hello everyone!

Just wondering who I should contact about my green card? I just have my stamp in my passport, and I know it can take 6 months. I've been looking on USCIS website, but there's so many numbers, do you know which one I should use? Thank you soo much! :D

You are in the USA, you won't be getting another visa.

It took me 3 months to get my physical greencard.

Did you get your welcome letter? I arrived on Dec 4th and got my welcome letter after a week. The Green Card arrived after a month and that month included the Christmas and New Year holidays.

I got my welcome letter back in Norway, when I got my passport back with my temporary visa. The visa is only valid for 6 months it says in my passport. I have not gotten anything from the government after I moved here. Who should I contact?

I got an I-797C (NOA) dated 4 days after my POE. The notice type is 'Welcome Notice'. It was issued by the Texas Service Center and basically says that they have received my packet from the POE and that I should hear from them within 30 days. They give a Customer Service number: 800-375-5283. If you call you will probably need your A number which should be on the visa stamp in your passport - your Registration Number (although there is an additional 0 at the front of my A number).

Good luck.

Check your case status online: https://egov.uscis.gov/cris/jsps/login.jsp

Click on Check my Case status and enter the receipt number from your NOA1/NOA2.

If it says your greencard has been mailed already then contact USCIS.
