Yes, that's the wrong forum but an Organizer will move your topic to the right place, don't worry. :)

By doing some researches on the website, I would say it can take a few weeks to 2 months? Someone more knowledgeable will give you a more accurate answer.

Your husband became a permanent resident as soon as he entered the US with his spousal visa. No need to wait for the green card to be allowed to work. His visa should have a note saying he is a permanent resident.

He needs to get a SSN first though.

That is the problem though...to get his SS card he needs two forms of ID. So far all he has is his Cuban passport with the CR-1 visa in it. I guess waiting for green card is necessary to get SS. :wacko::huh:

Have you tried to go to a SS office yet? I went there only with my passport and visa in it, and it worked. Later, a bank employee told me that the biographical page in the passport + the visa served as 2 different IDs.

If you didn't go to a SS office yet, I would try. Try to bring also his birth certificate + certified translation, a driver's license from his home country if he has one...

This is very common for new immigrants not to have 2 forms of ID en english, but still, a lot of K-1 holders requested a SSN a few weeks after their entry (and unlike your husband, fiance visa holders need to wait a long time before getting their green card). I strongly guess it is the same for CR-1/IR-1 visa holders.

I know a few CR-1/IR-1 who got their SSN with just their passport/visa, before receiving their green card...

BTW, the I-551 annotation and stamp on the spousal visa acts as a temporary green card, so... temporary ID.

Oh I had no idea, but that is great news! I will try to go to the SS office with all the documents mentioned… Thank you all for your advice.

We went to the SS office with his Cuban passport with the I-551 stamp and it worked :dancing: He should be getting his SS card in the mail within a week or two. Now job hunting with him should be interesting lol...Thanks for all your advice and help.
