        One year from time of adjustment interview from asylee to LPR.

          There's a weird requirement of one year wait from approval (interview) to getting the GC if done through asylum. I'm guessing the reason is in case the situation in the home country improves and you can leave to go back.

            Hey,
            A United States Permanent Resident Card, known informally as a green card (due to the color of some earlier variants), is an identification card attesting to the permanent resident status of an alien in the United States of America. Green card also refers to an immigration process of becoming a permanent resident. The green card serves as proof that its holder, a Lawful Permanent Resident (LPR), has been officially granted immigration benefits, which include permission to reside and take employment in the USA. The holder must maintain permanent resident status, and can be removed from the United States if certain conditions of this status are not met.

            Green cards were formerly issued by the Immigration and Naturalization Service (INS). During a re-organization process, that agency was absorbed into and replaced by the Bureau of Citizenship and Immigration Services (BCIS), part of the Department of Homeland Security (DHS). Shortly after that re-organization, BCIS was renamed to U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS), which still retains the responsibility for issuing green cards.

                Not a waiting requirement, but just how slowly things go.

                  "If approved, you may file for Permanent Residency after one year. You will submit form (I-485) and supporting documents as well as have another interview with the USCIS"

                  rapidimmigration.com

                  So yes there is a one year wait period after approval before filing for PR.

                    You can check processing times for I-485 here:
                    https://egov.uscis.gov/cris/Dashboard.do. It will largely depend on where you've filed but according to USCIS the national average is 4.8 months for I-485s based on grant of asylum.

                      Four months is a little optomistic. You can get the temp I-551 stamped on your passport or on a form I-94.

                        And, as I said, it is about 1 year from the adjustment interview, which occurs 1 year after you are approved as an asylee. So, it is 1 year as an asylee, then an ajustment interview, then about 1 year wait for the I-551 to arrive in the mail. Just get a temp stamp or temp I-551 on the I-94.
