Average Time From Date of Entry to Green Card Arrival (CR-1)

2 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

My wife and I were finally able to complete the out of country items(medical/interview/visa receipt) for her CR-1 visa and she was able to enter the US on April 1st. I incurred some issues with the ELIS payment(ended up paying twice because their system didn't ever receive our first payment). So the green card fee was paid on April 2nd. Around what time frame should we expect the permanent residency card to arrive(note we already received her SSN this week)?

Takes 1-3 months normally. It's been as fast as 3 weeks and as long as 8 months. Her endorsed visa is a temporary green card for up to 1 year and valid for anything a green card would be needed for.
