Hello all. I will be flying into SFO this weekend to enter in the US after having my CR-1 visa issued. I was just curious if anyone can link me to a possible checklist of documents/items I need to prepare for entry, and what the process is like once I land (will there be another interview?). Appreciate all the help and support!!!

Hello!

 

I didn’t need anything when I landed ~3 weeks ago on my CR-1 visa. Just my passport. They only asked me for my address, processed it, and advised me to call USCIS if I have any problems. There shouldn’t be another interview, all the vetting has been done! It was actually my most painless border crossing.

If your application was not fully electronic .. and you were given a sealed envelope when your passport was returned .. then you need your passport and the sealed envelope. Some immigrants are taken into a secondary inspection room .. many aren’t ., no rhyme or reason that I’m aware of.. but whether your entry is processed at the CBP booth or in the CBP secondary office .. it’s all about CBP making sure they’ve got all the documents , doing the usual fingerprints and photo, stamping your passport and checking your postal address for your green card to be sent to. No “interview”... 

 

Don’t forget to pay the $220 Green Card fee if you haven’t already done so .
