How to get greencard?

5 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

Hi

I recently came in the US on a IR2 visa. I don't know what to do now to get the greencard, all fees were paid before my interview. When I received my visa packet I didn't get to read the greencard info. I've been here for a month now and I'm curious on what next to do. I already got my social security number but need to know the next step for my greencard. Will it come in the mail? Is there a fee I should pay or something? 

Please inform me on what to do

 

Thanks in advance

Did you pay the new immigrant fee for hard copy green card production?  This cant be paid before the interview, only after you get your visa.

But until you get the hard copy, your endorsed visa is a temporary green card and you can use that for anything you need a green card for.

It took 6 weeks for my wife to receive her SSN and she received her green card the very next day.

 

If you've paid the immigration fee then you should get it by mail very soon. Good luck

I entered 2 Sept on IR 5..still waiting on green card.... huge variation in when it arrives... 

yup 1-6 months from payment or entry, whichever is LATER.  If you don't get it by 6 months, make a service request, contact the ombudsman, and have the US spouse contact their congressman and/or senator.

It will take a while to get it. After 45 or 60 days you can call USCIS and request to talk to a Tier 2 officer. Some people get it fast others wait for a long time
