Thread: I-130, Arrival in US, what next

  1. #1
    Hi,
    My step-daugter finally arrived in New York on Friday from Indonesia after nearly 1 1/2 years of an i-130 process.

    She told me she had been granted permanent residence and I took her word for it. I knew she had to go for an "interview" in jakarta.

    However, when I examined her passport closely yesterday. She just had a US visa. it said at the bottom "when endorsed, this shows temporary evidence of a 1 year permanent residence". What does this mean?? The visa didn't seem to be endorsed because it wasn't stamped.

    Should I be worrying about this? Where do I go from here? Quick Feedback appreciated.

    1. Who filed INS Form I-130 for your step
    daughter?
    2. Did she received a brown envelope with the
    Immigration visa sheet attached to the
    envelope with her photo.
    3. Inspector at the port of entery do not stamp
    the visa in US.
    4. The Stamp should READ:
    US Immigration
    New York #
    date of arrival
    Admitted_________
    Until____________
    A #...................
    Processed for I-551 Temporary Evidence of lawful Admission for Permanent Residence valid untill_____________________
    Employment Authorized.

    If this stamp has been endorsed then it is OK.
    You will have to wait 4-to 8 weeks to received her Green Card.
