I arrived at Pearson at 3:00pm on Jan 3 2019. My original flight was at 7:40pm. I got their early because I thought that my clearance through Customs & Border Protection (CBP), might take a few hours and I also wanted to see if I can get on an earlier flight. Since I had an IR-1, I did not have to get a photo receipt at the Kiosk before approaching CBP. The line was a little long, not too bad, but slower than usual, perhaps the holidays may have affected that. Anyways, as I approached, I gave my the officer the Visa side on my passport and he just started asking me normal stuff, that they ask b4 they let u enter. Before answering the first question I told him that this was my first time crossing with an IR-1. He was surprised and then asked me about the packet. I told him it was all electronic now. He then took me to the secondary inspection room. In the room another officer asked me about the packet and I said the same thing. He asked if they gave me any documents and I showed him the Welcome to USA doc, he asked to borrow it and if I could write my intended address on the back. He was gone for quite a bit, but he didn't seem like he knew what to do, because he also mentioned to me, 'this electronic stuff is all new, I have to figure out what to do', and he asked his colleague and supervisor , "so what do we do exactly," I was amused. His colleague said that ur just gonna double check the info online and then admit her and then she's done. He then called me over to his booth, and said everything looks good, he explained how the visa is used in travel and how my green card might take 6-8 weeks to be delivered since they are experiencing backlog. After that he said congratulations, your good to go! Also, I was able to get on an earlier flight
Nadia Barr posted a topic in Removing Conditions on Residency General DiscussionHi! I am applying for lifting of conditions on my green card after 2 years of marriage. My 2year green card expires on March 13, 2019. I just saw on the USCIS site that the average processing time is 16 months. Does anyone know what happens after my conditional green cards expire in March? Can I still work? Can I travel abroad? Is there something like the advance parole during the waiting time? What is my legal document during the waiting time? Thank you!
Hi everyone, i am writing to know your experience with advance parole. I read so much about it and i am so confused. I read about people having no problem travelling with that and people that says that it's only for emergency. Soon I will have my EAD i am adjusting from a tourist visa married to USC. I have no daca. I am asking this question because i've just booked the place for my wedding in my home country and my family and my husband's family are so excited and i am scared to travel with advance parole in case i don't have my GC yet at the time of my weddingday. PD is January 26 2018 wedding day is July 7 2019. Every advice and experience is more than appreciated. sorry for my broken english.
Need expert guidance. I am already travelling outside USA for official work and I misplaced my OPT EAD card. Some blogs I read which says my F1 visa and valid i20 ,employment letters and passport should be enough but I need some advise of what should be my steps to make sure there is no problem in re- entry. I have the scanned copy of my original OPT card which I can produce along with the employment letters and details. I am going back to USA in april so If i apply for replacement I would not get it so soon. Please advise, thanks in advance.
