paying ELIS $165 fee -- confused

4 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

I am confused. My wife has her sealed visa packet and her visa in her passport and we paid the ELIS $165 fee.

The payment cleared my account already a week ago but the website says the below.

Does this mean we have to wait for something to enter the US?

Will this affect my wife entering the US in any way?
Do we need any other documentation before we can enter the US?

We are planning on going to the USA in about 10 days and God knows I don't want to delay the trip 'cause of this.

Thanks.

This is perfectly usual and it will stay like this till about 1-2 months after she has entered...it will only change once actual green card production starts (then it will change from accepted to optimized). You don't need anything to enter the US from ELIS.
