Hi everyone,

I started this topic to help everyone waiting for her/his physical green card after she/he arrived to the United States

So I hope everyone share his OS155A status and post the time between his date of entry, the

immigrant fee date, the date you received the physical card in mail.

Wish you all the best

My status:

Poe: Newark May 5 2016

Paid : April 20 2016

USCIS status: payment received on 4/20/2016

Did you create an accountwith uscis? What browser do you use?

POE was Washington Dulles. On my account I could see that it was approved before I even paid so it switched to in production as soon as I paid. I didn't even see the status that says it has been paid.

I created an account here : https://egov.uscis.gov/casestatus/disclaimer.do

Then I added the IOE case number and when you check it for details, I could actually see all previous status updates

I don't know if POE really makes a big difference, but I doubt it.

No luck here. 11 months and still no green card.

Paid - 14 Jan 2016

POE - 15 Jan 2016 (Sweet Grass, MT)

USCIS case status - payment received 8 Feb 2016

I spoke with a USCIS officer in October who seemed to think the hold-up was because my fingerprints were too faint, but couldn't actually do anything to help. A few days later I got a letter - "Further research is needed in regards to your inquiry. You should receive correspondence within the next 60 days...".
