POE didn't take father's sealed envelope [split topic]

6 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

Hi,

 

I have question regarding medical sealed envelope requirement at PoE. My father got immigrant visa and entered in USA. He got passport and medical sealed envelope from embassy. But at PoE the immigrant officer didn't ask for the envelope and he said you are good to go. Is that Ok ?

 

On visa stamp, "IV Docs in CCD" is mentioned so Is this the reason CBP officer didn't ask for sealed envelope ?

 

My father asked the CBP officer 2 times about the sealed envelope checking but officer said you should good to go.

 

My father in USA now and we still have that sealed envelope which is not opened ever with us. What should we do with  that ?

Does the envelope say Do not Open?

Yes on the envelope they mentioned "do not open". Even my father also told couple of CBP officers there to take that envelope but they told him that he is good to go. This happened today in the early morning.

Wait for the green card,  keep the envelope safe in your files

Green card will take probably 3 to 4 months since on their website USCIC mentioned " Green Card take minimum 120 days after PoE.

 

IV Docs in CCD means we don't have to submit any sealed envelope to CBP officer since all the visa documents submitted electronically.

 

But my concern is what to do with that sealed packet.  Who needs to open that ? How can I verify that CBP officer gave entry to my father on immigrant visa class IR5 ?

 

Should I visit nearest USCIS office for help ?
