Waiting for the Green Card

7 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

Hi all, 
Hope everyone is doing great. I am creating this topic to check if the wait that we are experiencing is normal. My husband arrived USA on late November. We paid the green card fee ($220) before he arrive here in U.S. Until today he did not receive his green card. I am fully aware of the Covid related delays. But I was wondering if anyone else here is experiencing a wait that is more than 2 months? Also is there any way that we can track the process of the Green Card? 
Thank you and have a great day!

Several months is common these days.

When you paid the fee, they gave you an IOE receipt number that you can use to track the green card. Mine took 6 months last year. 
 

If after 90 days your husband still doesn’t receive his green card, he can make an inquiry.

We paid for the green card January 25, 2020 and he just got an email over the weekend that says his green card is being produced. We waited over a year to get to this point.
