  1. Thank you, I appreciate the inputs. She did receive her SSN within a month, it was filed concurrently with the application. She needs a GC to open a bank account so I wanted to get an estimate. Did you ever receive a Welcome letter? Something acknowledging that the GC file is processed. Thanks again!
  2. Hello everyone, My mother arrived on an IR5 visa on Dec 1. POE was Newark, the CBP stamped the passport and confirmed her address in the US. I paid her immigrant fees on Nov 29th, before she left for the US. Does anyone know how long it takes to get the physical green card in the mail? We haven't received a welcome letter. I tried to inquire online but it asks me to enter the code they send in the mail to create a USCIS account. Thank you!
  3. @payxibka- I went and reread the original post - you are absolutely right! Our cases were in 2 different stages - thank you for your inputs!
  4. First of all, I am truly sorry for your loss. I am in the exact same situation as you, lost my dad and eagerly waiting for my mother to join me in the US. I called the NVC and they asked me to submit a query to the address - asknvc@state.gov Here is the sample draft I attached so they could close my dad's case leaving my mom's file untouched. I was notified that the case has been closed. The other comments are absolutely right as well, since these cases are mutually exclusive, it won't affect your mother's file. But I just wanted to submit the paperwork and close the file. Dear Sir/Madam, Please allow me to introduce myself! My name is XXXXXX, I am the US citizen who has petitioned for my parents' IR5 visa. I filed their applications in August, 2019 and the applications have completed NVC processing with a Documentarily Qualified date of Sept, 2020. My parents were just waiting to be scheduled for an interview at the Mumbai Consulate in India. However, I was informed about my father's untimely demise on XXXXX. I am attaching his death certificate for your reference. Please update the NVC records accordingly. Sincerely, Petitioner
  5. I am very sorry for your loss. I lost my father as well and I can only imagine what you must have went through. My father's application was at the NVC stage so I emailed the State department (asknvc@ state.gov) with his case details and they were able to update the records. In your case, you will have to email the Islamabad consulate as recommended by @luckycat
  6. I believe they can submit this to any of the VAC centers. However, since the option is not available, it seems you are restricted to Mumbai. I believe there is a number you can call for the VAC and confirm. By the way, can you please include their Priority date and DQ date? It would help some of us gauge the expected duration for an interview. Thank you!
  7. Mumbai is one of the most backlogged consulates currently. I filed for my parents in Aug, 2019 and they have a DQ date of Sept, 2020. Still waiting for an interview...
  8. Hello Ashika, Congratulations! What consulate are you working with?
  9. Hello Rachel, Would you mind sharing your reason for expedite? I apologize if it is too personal. Thank you!
