  1. Hello all. I entered the U.S. with my IR1 visa at the beginning of this month. Since then, I've received my SSN in the mail, but I haven't yet received my PRC, which I understand can take a few months to arrive. I recently tried to get a state driver's license but ran into trouble because I don't have a stamp in my passport showing my date of entry. My visa says, "Upon endorsement serves as temporary I-551 evidencing permanent residence for 1 year". Since, therefore, I don't have a stamp, I don't think I can prove that it has been endorsed. On the other hand, I wouldn't have received a social security card if the CBP agent admitted me without going through the first time admission process... right? At the airport, I was pulled aside and had to wait in a room for a couple of hours. I was asked a few questions while an agent did some work on the computer and then I was sent on my way. What can I do to prove my date of entry? I understand that LPRs don't get I-94s. I also cannot find any travel history on the I-94 website.
  2. Hello, I need to travel abroad while the removal of conditions on my conditional green card is pending (through marriage). Is traveling with my expired green card + Extension letter enough or do I have to get the i551 stamp ? Thanks for your help
  3. Hello, My wife filled her I751 in May of 2019 and filed her N400 in June of 2020. Her I751 is still not processed. Her initial 18 month extension expired. She was able to get a I551 stamp on her passport in February 2022 for 6 months. That expired end of August 2022. She called USCIS to get another 6 month stamp on August 2 which is within USCIS guidelines. She was told in 30 days, they will schedule an appointment at the Dallas USCIS office. After 30 days passed, she received an email from Dallas office notifying that they dont have any appointments. We tried multiple times to get an appointment but Dallas office keeps saying they dont have any appointments available. We even tried to get an emergency appointment but still received the same reply. We asked if a different office can stamp her passport and we were told it goes by zip code and there is no way to go to another office. We have out of country travel scheduled for October 21,2022 and November 5, 2022. At the moment, my wife does not have anything that says she is a permanent resident. Has anyone gone though something like this before?
  4. Our i751 extension letter expired last year, and we followed steps to get infopass appointment and were able to get an infopass stamp last year before our travel in 2021. Now the infopass stamp expires in november and we have traveling scheduled from october to december, our return is after our stamp expires. So we called USCIS to get infopass appointment beginning of September and were told to wait for 30 days as usual, now instead of callback we get an email saying: We are contacting you about your pending request to be scheduled for an in-person appointment at a USCIS field office. Unfortunately, there are no available appointments with the field office that you need to visit. We apologize for this inconvenience and appreciate your patience. Please note that we process all requests for appointments in the order in which they were received. We ask that you wait for the Contact Center to reach out rather than calling back to check on your request as it may result in longer wait times. As soon as an appointment becomes available, we will: Send you an email with the date and time if it is determined you are eligible for an appointment; OR Contact you by phone or email to confirm that the appointment is still needed, and if so, schedule as appropriate. Not sure what do we do now, how can we get an appointment before our travel? Has anyone else gotten this email before and what happened after it?
