i751 Extension Letter Timeframe

7 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

Hello,

I would like to get an idea how long is it taking to receive the extension letter after you submit the packet of the form i751 along with everything else?

We just submitted ours yesterday, my husband's resident card expires June 8th and we have a trip to DR, June 13 :(

 

I read about a stamp, but none of the offices close to where i live are accepting infopass appointments.

 

Thank you for your help!

If you don’t receive it within 2 weeks of receiving notification of a receipt number, open a service request for non-delivery.  

 

You actually have to call USCIS to request an infopass at a lot of offices now.  Let them know you’re travelling and that’s why you need the stamp, otherwise they will push back and tell you to wait for the letter.

 Assuming you didn't make a dumb mistake like I did and forgot to include something like the payment or a copy of your current green card, you should get the letter within a couple weeks. Even if you did do something dumb like I did, you still should get the letter within plenty of time of your trip (it took about a month in my case due to my error).

Don’t be so hard on yourself - we have ALL made silly mistakes when it comes to USCIS.  When you’re dealing with something so important and so frustrating, you often overthink things, which lead to small mistakes.

Thank you so much.

didn’t know I had to call for the appointments. I did try to search online and that’s when I came across the “no infopass appointments” hopefully I don’t have to stress that.

I’m so sorry you had to go through that!

i think all the paperwork makes us nervous, I mean it’s such a big responsibility!!!! But so glad it only took one month!! 

 

I already have checks done and copy of green card. Hopefully I don’t forget anything! Thank you so much for sharing your experience!

Yeah at the bottom of those messages it states if you need assistance with documents or passport stamps to call them for setting up an appointment.

You will need to mention to the person on the phone that you have imminent travel plans and that the card will be expiring soon.
