Hello Everyone,

When is likely for CR1 to get Social Security Number and Green Card upon arrival to the US?

Your greencard will be mailed to you in approximately 4-6 weeks, but in the meantime, he endorsed visa on your passport is as good as the actual card.

In theory you should have your SS card mailed to you in 4-6 weeks as well but that is not always the case. I would suggest you pay a visit to your local SSA office on your third week in the US just to make sure...

Good luck!

Hello Everyone,

When is likely for CR1 to get Social Security Number and Green Card upon arrival to the US?

A welcome to America should be in the mail in about 2 weeks of your arrival and your green cars will follow up in and 2 weeks so you will get in about a month.if you applied for the social security card alongside with your immigrant visa it should be in the mail about 2 weeks of entering the States.sometimes the ssn card doesn't come along and you will have to wait for your green card to apply for it personally.They don't accept the temporary I 551 stamp on the passport to process ssn and driver license .they do scan your actual green card to determine the authenticity.

NB:I am not an Immigration Attorney, All i say here is based on my personal experiences through K-1 visa process and CR1/IR1 visa process.
