Recommended Posts

Hey ALL,

So I been waiting for the two month window of getting my green card in the mail. Its been 8 weeks today. I got busy with life and travel etc. Just checked my status today and it states my card of delivered on JULY 8!!!!!!

I was floored seeing the status. So can anyone tell me does this GREEN CARD come in the mailbox? I live in an apartment building. OR do they deliver to MY DOOR and leave a slip on my door. OR DID THEY leave my green card on my door step!!!???? cray5ol.gif Does the letter require a signature?

and is the letter marked US immigration?

im sorry to hear that.. i just got mine today. it is isured and priority mail. it just comes in a bigger envelope that says priority on it. and it doesn't say uscis on it. its just an address where they printed out the card. and they dont require signature.. you should have a tracking number to see what happened to it...

If you can't find your green card in your mailbox, then I assume USPS made a mistake and delivered it to a wrong address. I would advice you to call USPS and ask them where did they deliver it because you can't find where it is. 8 weeks is a bit long honestly and I think you should take charge to find out what happened to your green card. Basically USCIS will tell you to file for replacement card and make you pay almost $500. Good luck.

So I spent all morning and afternoon, trying to get to the bottom of where my green card is. I called usps and they said they "delivered" it on July 8. They said it also could have been sent back to the sender. I called Immigration and they haven't gotten it back. So called USPS again and filed complaint. So here I am waiting to here from USPS so they can give me details of the delivery. I wont know till Tuesday. ClockWatch2.gif

I'm very frustrated.

Anything else I can do?? Please advise.

ok - coupla paths here:


1. call into USCIS national call center. Touch no buttons after dialing. Wait till a spanish speaker comes online, then say 'English Please'. Wait again. Then when the CSR stops talking, say 'I have a problem with returned mail pieces - please transfer me to a ISO'.

2. Stay on hold till an ISO picks up.

3. When you get the ISO on the phone, ask - do you have any returned mail pieces on me? If yes, go over the address again, and ask that the returned mail pieces be sent to your proper address.


1. Go to the station that handles delivery of your mail, tracking number in hand.

2. ask for the site shift supervisor.

3. wait a bit, until you get the site shift supervisor.

4. give over the tracking number, ask the shift supervisor who delivered the mail (which human) that day.

5. ask for a 'local mailbox resort' if you live at an apartment and have a multi-box with the other tenants. it's possible it was mis-delivered to an unoccupied apartment.

That's it, for the moment. I pray you got lucky, and the letter was returned to USCIS. If that's the case, well, you have a path to have it resent. Dealing with USPS f'ups is a PITA.

Sometimes my language usage seems confusing - please feel free to 'read it twice', just in case !
Ya know, you can find the answer to your question with the advanced search tool, when using a PC? Ditch the handphone, come back later on a PC, and try again.
