It normally takes up to 120 days to receive your greencard. Most times you receive it a lot faster. But you will have to wait the stipulated time before contacting uscis.

So even if you pay for it before you migrate??

Correct.  New immigrants who pay the $220 fee before entry normally receive their green cards a few weeks to a few months after arrival....Never earlier than a few weeks......that I recall.

Sorry for the delay. Yes, I recommend paying for your card before you enter the states. My customs process for USA was in Canada at the airport. In this post I talk about my customs experience. Good luck and I'm sure it will go just as smooth. :)
