  3. You should also have the Immigrant Visa with photo affixed to one of the pages of the passport which acts as a temporary green card with a temporary expiration. At the bottom it states serves as Temporary I-551 Evidencing Permanent Residence For 1 Year.
  4. Yes it was uneventful at the POE. We received the social security number within about 10 days of the POE. We just received notice that the green card is being mailed (about 22 days from POE).
  5. A big congratulations again to you. Since you started the spreadsheet, maybe it is time time to start the alumni visa forum for all the graduates of the visa process.
  6. There you go. Congratulations!!!!!! You now join the visa journey alumni. I wrote before that we have NEVER seen anyone rejected who posts on this forum.
  7. It took 11 days to get the SSN. Waiting for GC.
  8. How long does it usually take for the Social Security Card to arrive after POE? @KaurN It took 11 days.
  9. After you pay your POE fee, you will receive an IO number. With that IO number your spouse can create an account on the USCIS website and from there you can check your green card status. https://egov.uscis.gov/casestatus/landing.do
  10. GOOD LUCK on the interview!! You will be fine.
  11. And thank you for the work you have done on the forum and good luck to you in the upcoming interview.
  12. The visas do work. My wife joined me in New York last night. POE was easy. They asked her a couple of questions. Where is your husband? She said outside waiting for me. She said he was joking but he did ask her if she had another husband in Vietnam. So all, please be prepared for a couple of questions from the immigration people. Otherwise, entry was no problem.
  13. Excellent and last week your were so nervous!!
