Green Card and SSN card

12 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

Hello VJ,

Our interview was approve February 23. On the I-130 petition prior attorney has chosen for ssn to be mailed. The $165 for green card was paid March 2 and my husband enter US on March 6. Does any one know how long before we get green card and should we wait for ssn in mail or go to office?? I'm afraid they mail ssn and then we go and are given 2 different numbers. Pls help if anyone knows the part to this process.

Wait 2 weeks if you didnt receive the SS then I will go to the office to request one. Green Card you will be waiting a LONG TIME....Hubby came Jan 6 and we are still waiting.

Wow! I thought it was a 30 day wait for green card after entrance to us. So to work they only need ssn and visa passport no green card???

I'm still waiting for mines , it's been 2 weeks since my husband entered USA

Thank you for reply. I'll continue to wait a little longer. We have a similar timeline. I'll keep you posted if I get anything.

Have you guys seen any update on the ELIS website after POE? Mine is still showing last updated date March 5 (the day I paid the fee). I did POE on March 16.

It's probably too early for me but I guess I expected to see some sort of case update when my envelope gets to TSC for green card production.

I might go to the Social Security office by the end of next week though, since I need the SSN.

Hello, here's some info i know:

The green card takes time, from 3-6 months after POE and after US Immigrant Fee is paid. That is why the stamp on the passport (I-551) lasts up to 1 year from POE date.

I needed the SSN asap in order to apply for an apartment so we went to the SSN office and they informed us the SSN card was already mailed BUT since we were there we were able to get the number on the spot!

Good luck!! :)

Jcruz! Long time no see. :) Thanks for the info! I guess I'm going to do the same for the SSN. I'm going to try waiting one more week so as to not mess anything up (I doubt you'd end up with duplicate SSN, but oh well...)

I've read so many different things on here. I hope the green card takes less time than that, but we'll see. It's not like any stage of this process has gone faster than expected. :lol:

It is about a 1-3 month wait.

The endorsed visa IS a green card.
