Card Production Delays At USCIS!

11 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

Hi all,

It's been a few months since I lasted posted here, but just wanted to share some info that I gleaned from USCIS' customer service center earlier today...

I received my I-765 approval notice 12 days ago but still hadn't received the card, so I called USCIS to find out when it was due to arrive (I have an interview coming up!). Turns out that production of all cards - Green cards as well as EADs as I understand it - is delayed, and that they've increased the max wait time from 30 days to 60.

If anyone else is waiting on a card and/or knows anything about this, feel free to post in here!

Sept. 10 we got approval of our AOS, and the USCIS web site says we should expect green cards by November 12... So, yes, looks like they are experiencing the delay, producing green cards.. Not sure about EAD - at the end of July we requested to expedite the renewal of EAD and we received cards in 10 days...

I just saw that I got my approval (I got a welcome notice, is that the same thing?) on Sept 10 as well, and it says it will arrive by Nov 9th.

It also says this, which if someone knows the meaning of, I'd love to know: "Your new permanent resident card should arrive by November 9, 2015, after this registration or after you complete any ADIT processing referred to in the welcome notice, whichever is later."

it’s primarily for people who haven’t yet received a stamp in their passport proving their U.S. permanent residence, or whose previous fingerprints had a smudge or other issue such that USCIS needs to redo them.The acronym ADIT stands for Alien Documentation, Identification & Telecommunications System. It means that USCIS is calling you in for a brief walk-in visit in order to collect the information, photos, and fingerprints that it needs in order to create your actual green card.

My AOS was approved on September 8th and got the same updates as above that I should be expecting my green card around November.

However, it was a pleasant surprise when my green card arrived in the mail yesterday. The letter has September 10th date which was super efficient!! Seemed to be unheard of these days with anything related to USCIS.

I know waiting is a pain so I feel for those who haven't received their green cards. Just wanted to share some good news too, you'll never know what letters are waiting for you in your mailboxes!!

Hi I got my EAD approval paper today. But there is no card. As I understand they should send card too? I just have 1 piece of paper. Thats it.

Is the card supposed to come in the same envelope or different mail?

Thanks a lot.

The EAD will come in a USPS priority mail envelope separate from your I-765 approval letter.

My EAD was approved 11/3, still waiting for the card. Called USCIS customer service, they said up to 60 days dues to delays. Unbelievable. First the application took 88 days to approval and now this. The USCIS are wrecking peoples careers and lives with these extreme processing times and they claim them 90 days to be sure to get your renewal before the current expires. Well, with an additional 60 day to produce the card we're now looking at 150 days which is 30 days longer than the maximum 120 days before expiration that you are allowed to send in your application! It doesn't make any sense!
