I-90 Filed, now what?

5 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

So I lost my green card... I filed I-90 last week and nothing has happened yet (...and I'm not expecting anything to happen for a while, especially due to the holidays). I'm traveling (...at least planning on) on 1/17. I figured I need the I-551 stamp in my passport but I can't schedule an appointment in my local USCIS office ('This office is not accepting walk-in requests or scheduling InfoPass appointments.' 'If you need help with document services (such as passport stamps and advance parole) or have an emergency, call the USCIS Contact Center...'). I tried calling but I can't get through to an agent (... because it's a maze...). So... what else is there to do? Show up at the office?

It will be at least Wednesday or later before you are able to even contact anyone there.

Keep trying to call and schedule an infopass appointment after the holidays are past. If you call USCIS ask to speak to a Tier 2. I know it sucks but do not travel if you do not have your green card or the stamp.

Update:

I managed to get through agent on 1/7, told them my predicament and they said - yes, you need a stamp, we'll put you in the system and agent will call you in 24-48 hours to get you an appointment date since it's urgent.

No call, I call again 1/9, go through the same process again, tell them that I didn't receive any communication ('I'm so sorry about that!') and they say they will call in 24-48 hrs.

Guess what... I call them again on 1/14, again through the same process, they are again apologetic and say that I'll recieve call in 24-48 hours to schedule appointment.

It's 1/18. I still haven't received my call (or email, for that matter). My travel date came and went (...good thing my bosses understand) and I'm still without the stamp or appointment.

 

My I-90 was processed and I got biometrics taken today. I told the agent what happened and he told me that supposedly there's no chance of getting appointment before getting your biometrics taken (...and yet, they didn't even take them, just 'checked' them......) and that I should try after 24 hours when my biometrics hit the system. I'm... Disappointed? Frustrated? Pissed? To put cherry on this cake, agent has also said that it can take up to 12 months for me to get the GC. 😤

Sincere sympathies.  One of the most irritating things in life is not to receive return contact when it's been promised.


06-04-2007 = TSC stamps postal return-receipt for I-129f.

06-11-2007 = NOA1 date (unknown to me).

07-20-2007 = Phoned Immigration Officer; got WAC#; where's NOA1?

09-25-2007 = Touch (first-ever).

09-28-2007 = NOA1, 23 days after their 45-day promise to send it (grrrr).

10-20 & 11-14-2007 = Phoned ImmOffs; "still pending."

12-11-2007 = 180 days; file is "between workstations, may be early Jan."; touches 12/11 & 12/12.

12-18-2007 = Call; file is with Division 9 ofcr. (bckgrnd check); e-prompt to shake it; touch.

12-19-2007 = NOA2 by e-mail & web, dated 12-18-07 (187 days; 201 per VJ); in mail 12/24/07.

01-09-2008 = File from USCIS to NVC, 1-4-08; NVC creates file, 1/15/08; to consulate 1/16/08.

01-23-2008 = Consulate gets file; outdated Packet 4 mailed to fiancee 1/27/08; rec'd 3/3/08.

04-29-2008 = Fiancee's 4-min. consular interview, 8:30 a.m.; much evidence brought but not allowed to be presented (consul: "More proof! Second interview! Bring your fiance!").

05-05-2008 = Infuriating $12 call to non-English-speaking consulate appointment-setter.

05-06-2008 = Better $12 call to English-speaker; "joint" interview date 6/30/08 (my selection).

06-30-2008 = Stokes Interrogations w/Ecuadorian (not USC); "wait 2 weeks; we'll mail her."

07-2008 = Daily calls to DOS: "currently processing"; 8/05 = Phoned consulate, got Section Chief; wrote him.

08-07-08 = E-mail from consulate, promising to issue visa "as soon as we get her passport" (on 8/12, per DHL).

08-27-08 = Phoned consulate (they "couldn't find" our file); visa DHL'd 8/28; in hand 9/1; through POE on 10/9 with NO hassles(!).
