5 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

My husband has still not received his physical green card in the mail...it's been almost 7 months since he entered the U.S. on a IR-1 visa. How long is it taking everyone to receive it? The officer at POE said within a year we'll receive it. How can we go about tracking its progress?? Thanks in advance for any advice!!

Uhm should be a lot ealier than that. My Mom enter in IR-5 and received the GC in 3 weeks. Some people 2-3 months. 7 months is very long. You need to call USCIS and make some noise.
