After enter USA with electronic IR1 visa, but green card status is still pending

Recommended Posts

Hi everyone, I paid the green card fee before entered USA with IR1 electronic visa (no package) in September, now I already have been lived in US for 1.5 months, I know it's still early to check green card status which is still showing payment received. But I heard that carrying the electronic visa would cause more delay. Anyone could share any experience? 

Thank you.

What electronic?  You should have a stamp in your passport

Yes, I have a stamp which means 1 year green card temporary. I'm talking about my IR1 electronic visa, normally embassy will send a whole package with immigrant visa after approval, but nowadays those package becomes electronic.

Normally we should receive green card after paid and entered the US about 3-4 weeks, but I heard carrying electronic immigrant visa cause delay.

There is no such thing as an IR-1 electronic visa.  You're talking about the visa packet.  

 

The visa packet being electronic does not case any delays in sending out the green card.  It can take 2-3 months to arrive.  

Correct.  The visa is glued permanently to a page of the passport.  There is no electronic visa.  It can take even longer than that, but I would start making contacts to USCIS after 3 months.  The visa and endorsement stamp next to it substitute for a green card for a year.

Everyone seems to want to nit-pic on your terminology  ...   yet they all know about the "electronic data package" instead of the physical DO NOT OPEN envelope with your case file, and knew what you were asking

 

All you want is to know if because of this new process does it take longer to receive your physical green card.   And yes, it is taking longer.

 

 And as you noted you do have the I-551 (permanent resident status) stamp in your passport which is valid for one year.    So no worries there.

We are almost 3 and a half months and no green card yet. We tried to contact USCIS, but they said wait up to 120 days before making any inquiry. So we are not worrying about it much, you should not either.

What a coincidence!

My wife received her card just today. I am from CO. Today marks the 119th day since her arrival, so I guess USCIS didn't miss their timeline! 😂
