I believe it comes to your address.

Just for educational purposes, can you give some details? Extreme hardship I-751 waivers are very rare so it would be useful for others in your situation.

I have created an account at myusps.com. Once you do, you can opt to be notified by mail or text about any package that has been shipped to you. This is whether you have a tracking number or not. Realized the tracking number provided by USCIS comes in late. Once it is picked up by USPS I will be notified and I can track it online.

I looked at some other cases and usps.com for the fun of it. USPS priority mail (that carries the green card, tracking # start 9205) takes 1-3 business days depending on where you live. Most areas 2 business days. It comes from Corbin KY 40701. I did a quick search and some vj users report 2-5 days from they get "my card is mailed" update to having green card in hand.

That's a pretty cool tool. I am surprised we did not get the notification which says "the Post Office picked up mail containing your new card for Receipt number...." Noticed most folks get it later the same day after "my card was mailed" notification. I guess we will see on Monday or Tuesday.

Did you receive the update with tracking number? My status was changed on September,23rd to The card was mailed to you but no update since then, no tracking number:(

I did not get it so I am actually thinking it is going to show up unannounced in the mailbox.

Do you have an account at MyUSPS? https://my.usps.com/mobileWeb/pages/intro/start.action Sign up if you don't have one, it would show any tracking-available envelope/parcel coming to your address.

What does the status currently show? For me things went like this; 3/28 approval letter came in mail, 4/4 new card ordered, 4/7 new card mailed, 4/8 card picked by usps, took them 3 days to deliver on 4/12.

I have the same status as you on the same day 23rd. Nothing since. My usps is not showing anything shipped to me and USCIS said they did not have a tracking number yet.
