delays with green card production/mailing

7 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

Anybody experiencing any delays with a green card delivery after your case got approved?

My case got approved more than 2 weeks ago (the status changed to green card production ordered, followed by welcome notice mailed)

The welcome letter was received a week ago.

The resident card is still in production...

I visited my local uscis office to get my passport stamped but was told to wait for a green card in mail or to bring any supportive documents if i have to leave the U.S in case of emergency.

I don't really have an emergency but it would be great to visit my family abroad before i start school this fall.

Hey all, we've been talking about this on this thread: http://www.visajourney.com/forums/topic/560558-are-you-still-waiting-for-conditional-green-card-to-arrive-after-welcome-notice/

Many of us are in the same situation!! I went to an infopass appointment, and long story short, the MO contractor updated their software which caused (apparently lots of) delays. So if your welcome notice was sent from Missouri, that's probably the cause of your card not arriving yet, and you'll get it very soon.

We were approved July 15 and then status changed to Card Was Mailed to Me on August 16, so about a month. In post #28 on that thread I give instructions about what to do if it still hasn't arrived in 6 weeks.

Good luck!
