I know you can now take phones in but what about iPods? I'm not so good at reading a book when I'm nervous, I need music and my phone is so #######, and needed for skype, that I take my iPod everywhere.

When I went for my J1 visa appointment in May, anything bigger than an iPad was prohibited (laptops etc), so an iPod should be fine. Remember to pay attention to the screens and the numbers being called though! Good luck!

I had an mp3 player with me for mine but didn't use it because like everyone else I was listening out for the beeps and checking the screen. Missing your number being called is a baaad thing!

Ok, thanks guys. Good to know I can take it though, even if it's just while I'm waiting outside. Yes, I'll probably be way to nervous once inside to do anything but what you all said.

Can we take water bottles? I'm not sure if they're just an airport-only banned thing.


ROC from CR-1 visa (Green Card expiration date was Nov 24th 2016)

 

Link to the evidence I submitted. Be sure to send evidence spanning your entire marriage (especially for K-1) or as far back as you can. Just one or two bank statements will not cut it. I primarily focused on the two years of living here since I came in on a CR-1. If you don't have the fundamentals (i.e. joint accounts/policies), you can explain why in the covering letter. E.g. "While we do not have joint utilities, we both contribute to them from our joint bank account".

March 29th 2018: Card being produced

April 6th 2018: Card in hand. Has incorrect "resident since" date. Submitted service request on I-751 case (typographical error on permanent resident card) and an I-90 online.

April 2018 - August 7th 2018: Tons of service requests, emails and now senator involvement to get my corrected green card back because what the heck, USCIS. Also some time in May I sent a letter to Potomac telling them I want to withdraw my I-90 since CSC were handling it.

August 8th 2018: Card in production thanks to the direct involvement of Senator Sherrod Brown's team

August 13th 2018: Card mailed

August 15th 2018: Card in hand with correct date. :joy:

October 31st 2018: Potomac sends out a notice stating they have closed out my I-90 per my request. Yay for no duplicate card drama.
