"I called them first but the USCIS Tier-1 said that she can't do anything about that since I've already been approved and when I asked to transfer my call to Tier-2 she then refused by saying that it's only for people that their application still in processing." - Girl from Celebes

The funny thing was when I had to do the same thing for my EAD renewal after its approval, Tier 1 tried to say that to me too, but I insisted no less than 4 times to speak with Tier 2 to get a more accurate update and he very unwillingly transferred me "since I continued to insist", so there you have it, continue to insist till Tier 1 transfers you. By the time I called, it was about 15 days after approval. I will also add that both Tier 1 and Tier 2 did eventually give me the "We have up to 30 days to get your card printed". Now I don't know if there is a difference for GC or if your welcome letter gives a longer time frame.

I think that's probably different though. To be honest I have no idea. Because I insisted but she refused to transfer me anyway.

So, I updated my address this friday (7th august) since we moved in our new house. I took the opportunity to send too an other inquiry since it has been 3 months passed from the last one:

- 1H after the update and the new inquiry, I received an email from "myUscis" telling me that my working card has been order the 5th, 1 month after they approved it (I thought it was bizarre but why not, it can be a coincidence).

- 6h after, I received an other email from "myUscis" telling me that my green card has been ordrer the 7th (more and more bizarre).

And then, with this second email, I became suspicious... Since I didn't received any other update for my green card (beside the potential interview waiver letter, it goes from "we received..." to "new card is been produced" without no other post decision activity ?) I am wondering if it's not a mistake because I update my address... as you can read, after 16 months, I am very suspicious. But if it is not a mistake, I will thanks the one who update my case and make a party, for sure ! ^^

I did not have "post decision activity" status as well. So, don't worried about that.

Thank you for your post, Girl from Celebes ! :) But I am more affraid to be disappointed since it is maybe an automatic email send to everyone who change their address (2 updates the same day, after so many time with different cases, it can be very suspicious). I will make an update as soon as I figured out what's going on with my card ! ^^

Do not worry. It happened to me in the same day and only one hour between the two notification. First I got (Card being produced) and the second ( Welcome Notice Mailed). I got the welcome letter after 6 days from this notification. Everything is ok. I am still waiting for my green card though.

Welll... I received an update : "Welcome notice was mailed". I am more confident now. That's mean they took 1 year 3 months and 13 days between NOA1 and acceptation ^^ But does someone knows what "ADIT processing" means ?

Welcome Notice Was Mailed

On August 10, 2015, we registered your permanent resident status and mailed you a Welcome Notice for Receipt Number MSCXXXXXXX. Please follow the instructions in the notice. Your new permanent resident card should arrive by October 9, 2015, after this registration or after you complete any ADIT processing referred to in the welcome notice, whichever is later. If you move, go to www.uscis.gov/addresschange to give us your new mailing address.
