  1. Hi everyone, I started this topic to help everyone waiting for her/his physical green card after she/he arrived to the United States So I hope everyone share his OS155A status and post the time between his date of entry, the immigrant fee date, the date you received the physical card in mail. Wish you all the best My status: Poe: Newark May 5 2016 Paid : April 20 2016 USCIS status: payment received on 4/20/2016
  2. Hi, I have gained my Lawful Permanent Resident status in the US on April 2019, last year, on that time I was serving in the army under mandatory law for military service in my home country. I have been serving since November 2017 and until July 2020. I have already had flight tickets in my hands into the US that were planned for April 2020- so I shall not remain outside of the US for a period longer than 1 year. Unfortunately, Covid-19 pandemic has shown up and I could not have come to the US on times because the airline has cancelled my tickets. because of that, I have exceeded 1 year outside of US borders and now I need to apply for SB-1 Returning Resident visa in order to come back to the US. this upcoming process is exhausting and complicated in order to issue me a new immigrant visa and may hurt my naturalisation process. my green card was only issued last year and is valid until 2029, my question is if would you recommend for me to just take a flight now into the US and deal with the immigration officer at the port of entry or start this visa process with the embassy in my home country?
  3. Please direct me to a Thread for People Waiting on Green Card after Arrival. Thanks
  4. Hello friends, I think I am in a trouble and I need your help please. My story is: I got married on 08/20/2015, I came to the USA on 08/29/2017. I heard that my passport should have been stamped with IR1. But it was stamped with cr1 instead. I had no clue at the moment. I don't want to receive the conditional green card. I want to be done with the paper work, at least for now. What can I do to make sure I receive the correct ir1 green card? Will they by default produce the ir1 green card given we've been married for more than 2 years? Or it will be the conditional cr1 since that's what my passport stamped with? Is there anything I can do to get the correct ir1 green card while it's pending, other than returning the incorrect cr1 with the form i-90? Thank you in advance!
  5. As I went through US customs at SFO, the Filipino woman checking food in the luggage asked if I was bringing any Magic Sarap additive or chicharon (pork skin cracklings). I said no. She then said those are banned food products. Any other foodstuff from the Philippines that's banned? Is bagoong banned too?
  6. Will the Consulate or Embassy accept a Scan Copy of a Police Certificate at the Interview?
  7. Hi, I live in Northern Ireland so I got the visa from London but i will be flying out from Dublin as it is cheaper, easier and i will be going through preclearance there rather than in the U.S. Will this be okay if my visa was processed in the U.K. but will be flying from Ireland? Just a little worried if I’m going through customs in a different country than where i got my visa, but I’m sure this will be okay?
  8. I finally received my Cr1 visa and visa packet, everything went well and I have my flight booked with Orlando, FL as my destination. However, my flight stops at San Juan, Puerto Rico first, where I'll have to wait and board the next one that will take me to Orlando. My question is, is Puerto Rico considered a port of entry? do I hand my visa packet there or am I supposed to keep it and hand it over at Orlando? If PR is indeed a POE, would that make things more difficult? I understand they would then have to ship my documents in order for me to receive my green card later.
  9. Hope all are doing well in this shut down in the USA and your perspective home country. My fiancee from the Philippines is coming soon in mid April and her port of entry is San Francisco. I know USA is stopping tourist from coming to the USA from Europe. Have any members with K1 visa entered the USA without any problems from the Philippines or other Asian countries since this corona virus started? I just don't want her to come to the USA and get deny entry to the USA. Thanks in advance for your replies.
  10. I entered from washington dulles airport! The process was really smooth and wasnt asked any questions at all! immediately got stamped and left but what i didnt notice was the fact that they did not ask me for vaccination record neither my xray cd and i also forgot to give it to them! Will this be an issue for my green card?
