When will I receive GC

3 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

I have the CR-1 visa obtained by DCF and we will enter US soon. We will live in two different places in the first 4 months and will not live in the place we mentioned in I-130. The questions are:

1) Can I change the address (online, at the POE, etc) where my GC will be mailed?

2) If yes, when should we expect it?


DCF, CR-1

2014-10-15 - I-130 filed in Moscow, Russia consulate

1. Yes at PoE.

2. It can take up to 3 months, but around 6 weeks is more normal. The stamp in your passport's visa page will act as a temporary greencard for a year, so you can work and travel.
