EAD approval notice via mail

17 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

Hi everyone,

I'm new here. Hopefully I'm posting at the right forum, if not my apologies!

I received an I-797 NOA today for my EAD saying it's approved (this is based on adjustment of status). The notice date was June 4, 2015. In the letter, it says that my EAD was sent under separate cover to the beneficiary.

Does anyone know how long it takes for the actual card to get here after receiving the approval notice in the mail?

Also, what's interesting is that I signed up for email and text notification via the USCIS website and the status hasn't changed online.

Thanks for the help!

Status will change on line. It can take a bit. After you see the status change to Card in Production. It should be like 2 to 3 weeks to get the card.

Congrats

Sounds good, so based on your timeline, I should expect the card to arrive here sometime this week.

Thanks for the help!

No, it stills says case is received. I haven't gotten the actual card either. So, I'm not sure why there are no updates online and no card. I'll probably call tomorrow if I don't get it by then.

Same thing happened to me. It was approved on June 4th. My case status online still shows as received. I haven't receive my card in the mail. Let me know when you get yours.

I just got the card! Wo hoo! The status hasn't changed online, but the card is here. You should check to see if you get yours today!
