I am going to renew my green card for 10 years, in June. Can someone tell me if I can travel after a receive the extension paper for 18 months? I wanna visit my country and I don’t know how this works. Thank you!
I was wondering if everyone filling with a Manhattan NYC address gets assigned Vermont (EAC) to their case? Has there ever been someone from NYC who was sent to Texas (SRC) or any other office? I'm filling my I-751 on Monday morning and I'm praying that it will go to Texas because their cases are being processed so quickly. Is that impossible?
My I-751 took less than 4 months to process without an Interview. Needless to say I was pleasantly surprised. Below is my timeline.
Good Luck to you all!
Conditional GC Expiration Date: March 20th 2021
12/18/2020 - Submitted Package for I-751 Remove Conditions on Residence
12/21/2020 - Notification that Petition to Remove Conditions on Residence was received
1/14/2021 - USCIS returned a photobook I sent. They stated the document is not in a format which they can utilize hence it was returned. * I forgot I should have just printed the photos and placed them in a folder, as opposed to making an actual photobook on Shutterfly*
Around Mid February I noticed around six weeks have passed since my last update. I never received a notice to confirm whether the case was accepted. I proceeded to call the office and spoke with a representative. The rep told me a receipt notice was sent out to me a few days prior. He stated there was a backlog in processing and notifications have been delayed as a result. I then went to my mailbox and collected the receipt notice. The case was accepted and I received the 18 month extension letter.
03/08/2021 - Received a notice that my existing prints on file will be used for biometrics
4/13/2021 - We ordered your new card
4/14/2021 - We approved your Form I-751, Petition to Remove Conditions on Residence.
Finally some good news after getting worried that other cases in the same batch as mine with the same filing dates were getting approved from about 3 weeks ago, even some batches after mine got approved last week but my case status remained the same until yesterday when I received the 'Card in Production' email. I received another update today saying 'Case Approved'.
Almost 20 months of waiting
Potomac Processing Center aka the slowest
Application received August 23 2019
Biometrics Appointment January 29 2020
Case No - YSC*******
I applied to naturalization in December while my I-751 is still pending (since January 2020). My I751 was transferred to NBC after I submitted the N-400, which is showing online on my case status website. However, one day I received biometric reuse letter for the N-400 but there was no message on my case status , didn't know it was happening until I received it in the mail. I am wondering if it's common to have no updates online while you cases are actually moving forward, it makes me a little stressed (in case mail gets lost).
My Service center is WAC and my timeline is below in case it helps anyone:
Jan 2020 - I-751 submitted
Sept 2020 - Biometric reuse for I-751
December 22, 2020- N-400 submitted (online)
December 27-28, 2020 - I751 transferred to NBC (it showed it was transferred twice but only received one piece of email)
February 2021 - Biometric reuse in the mail N-400
April 2021- N-400 still showing "you submitted your N-400 on december 2020..." does not show they are reusing my old fingerprints
