Hey guys! Here my story, hope would be helpful for you I lost my 10 year green card
I'm in total shock..... I applied on May 20th (online/paperless) USCIS received it on May 20th, Biometrics reuse notice on May 20th, Approval notice May 21st Amazing, unbelievable, I'm speechless, only 1day in total. God bless!!!
I consider myself very lucky when I see how quickly I got my replacement green card. I lost my original card Nov 1, 2019 in JFK airport during my onward international flight. My category is E16 -- the DoS agent said the category doesn't matter. My location is RDU. Here is my timeline
Dec 25, 2019 -- Submitted US 90 form; created uscis profile
Dec 26 -- called USCIS for an infopass appointment for an I551 stamp
Dec 27 -- got a return call to confirm the date of my infopass appt. This call comes at random times. Mine came at 3 PM.
Dec 30 -- notified by USCIS for a biometric appt on Jan 15/2020
Jan 2, 2020 -- Infopass appt for my I551 stamp, which I got after my appt with the agent. The agent was also kind enough to give me a letter to prepone my biometric appt to Jan 2
Jan 2 -- I gave my biometrics for green card
Jan 3 -- Got a confirmation that they received my details
Jan 6 -- notified the replacement card is printed
Jan 10 -- received the card in my mailbox.
It took a year & 8 months to have my I-751 approved and sadly when it finally arrived it had the photo of a stranger on it . All the information was correct except for the photo .
My photo was taken at the biometrics appt so I know it was an error on USCIS part.
I submitted my application to replace my green card in April 2019 along with the original Green Card.
Late in April 2019 I received a REF which asked for more Biometric Evidence as I had only sent a photo of my Drivers license and a copy of my conditional green card.
So, I sent my passport and a cover letter explaining the error on the green card.
USCIS confirmed in May 2019 that they received my information and I didnt hear from them since then.
I highly recommend opening an online account as you can see all the letters they send you (in case one is lost in the mail) and you can upload documents there in case you get a REF (Request for Evidence)
I would check my account every 2 weeks or so but there was no change until
November 2019 where I was told my card was being produced.
It took 7 months for my replacement card to be produced.
Hi: Can anyone please share any ideas/suggestions on this?
My son, who is currently out of the country and returning on Dec 16, lost his GC and applied online for replacement. He just received a message on his USCIS Account that he has been scheduled for Biometrics. The Notice has not arrived and is also not yet uploaded onto his USCIS Account.
If the Bometrics date is before he arrives in the US, what's the best way to reschedule the Biometrics?
Writing this experience just for those who might be in the same/similar situation.
I have received my conditional green card Nov. 2018 and noticed my date of birth is incorrect. I found out that attorney had input wrong date of birth into the application form. I had to file I-90 for replacement with a correct date of birth. Here is my very brief timeline
Feb. 2019 - Applied I-90
Mar. 2019 - Biometric appointment
Apr. 2019 - Case is being actively reviewed
Nothing has changed since then. It has been over 8 months and seems like it is still within the processing time. I am not sure how other people get their card approved earlier than me despite the fact that they applied later than I did. But it is what it is.
Just writing here to lessen your anxious and please share your information if you are undergoing same situation.
Just FYI, in Seattle replacing your green card takes around 11 months on average. We are also worried about rampant mail fraud in our area because we requested our green card three times (roughly 2 1/2 years of waiting) and each time it was never delivered to our locked mailbox, even though the USPS claimed it was.
As far as the removal of condition process, we started that more than 9 months ago in January 2019, and still have not received an appointment for bio-metrics. A total of 3 years after originally applying, we still have not received one green card in the mail, and every time we left the country, my wife was interrogated like a criminal for more than 3 hours with our children hungry and screaming the entire time. NOT a fun experience. At this point while we wait for the removal of condition, she is allowed to stay in the country, but cannot leave due to no ACTIVE green card because the original condition was 2 years. So yes, if you apply for your removal of condition, you will have to wait past the expiration date of your original green card and you won't be allowed to leave the country. My advice is that if you are going to apply for a marriage green card, do it in an area other than Seattle.
I applied for my replacement card on 08/15/2019 after having lost my GC 2 days earlier. I applied I90 online and the whole process took 2 months and 3 days to get my new card. Below is my timeline.
08/15/2019 - Applied I90 online (using my DHS online account) and paid the fees online as well during the application.
08/19/2019 - Receipt notice was uploaded online to my I90 form under 'documents' section.
08/23/2019 - Received paper notice for I90 in mail.
08/26/2019 - Biometrics notice was uploaded to my I90 form under 'Documents' section. Appointment was for 09/11/2019.
08/28/2019 - Received paper notice for biometrics in mail.
08/29/2019 - Walked-in for early biometrics as I was travelling out of USA on 09/10/2019. Requested ADIT I551 stamp but was told to get an INFOPASS appointment for ADIT as they don't accept walk-ins. They were ok to do only biometrics for walk-ins.
08/29/2019 - Called USCIS number and asked for a INFOPASS for ADIT stamp. Officer said they will call back within 3 days to schedule it.
09/02/2019 - USCIS called on 09/02/2019 and scheduled infopass for 09/03/2019.
09/03/2019 - Went for infopass and got ADIT stamp on my passport. Stamp given for 1 year validity.
09/10/2019 - Travelled out of USA and returned on 10/02/2019. After I returned, Immigration stopped at airport for 2 hours after looking at my ADIT stamp. Took me into a waiting area and verified my information and then allowed me in luckily.
10/10/2019 - Received status update that the 'Card is being produced.
10/18/2019 - Card was delivered to my mailbox.
I got my approval notice letter for my adjustment of status yesterday (08-12-19). and I noticed my full name that indicated on the letter is wrong. I haven't receive my actual green card yet. Is there any way I can change immediately? who had an same experience?? what you guys did? next year month of January we're having a vacation Im kinda worried because my passport is different from my greencard. It might be.
