Questions about ELIS and SSN

10 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

I know I can only pay the ELIS fee for my IR-1 visa once I receive the package from the consulate. When I filled out my forms, I requested an SSN. Is that SSN tied to the ELIS fee or is that just being issued separately? I'm just trying to work as soon as possible once I cross and I want to ensure I'm not having to wait 1-3 months for my SSN like I will for my greencard. Thanks.

Could you please explain me in detail. I am also IR-1.

So if people are in IR-1, those people wait for 1 to 3 months for green card??

It takes 1-3 months for hard copy green card from POE or from payment, whichever is later.

I know, my question is whether my SSN will also take that long or not. Whether the SSN is attached to the ELIS payment or not.

No. If you dont get the SSN within 2 weeks go to the SSA office and get it. Majority do not get it automatically despite checking the box on the DS260 Sometimes doing this CAN move your green card production, but it's not a guarantee.

So the SSN process started on approval? I was approved January 5th, so it would be two to three weeks from approval?

No. A social security number will be assigned after you entered the US.
