10 year card received!

6 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

Today in the huge pile of post-holiday weekend mail, we received Niko's 10-year green card!

All told, it was roughly 5 months for us from filing the I-751 to receiving his 10-year GC using the VSC.

I just wanted to update everyone as to our timeline so you can have an idea (albeit a very very rough one!) for yourselves.

Even though he has the stamp in his passport, I was hoping it would arrive in time for our trip back to Slovenia in a week (his first time back since he moved here). Now if only I could bring more than 3oz of water with me on that transatlantic journey.....

Good luck everyone....I am sure we will be comparing timelines over in the naturalization forum next!
