PLEASE HELP - Cant track my green card!

Jun 24th 2016
How or where do I track my green card once I have entered into the US and dropped off my papers? I havent received a tracking number and the only numbers I have are my A-number and and my case number. They didnt give me anything in the immigration office where I dropped off my papers at POE. I got a stamp when I entered the US but I dont think there is a number I can use to track.

I tried this website but it asks for a receipt number but I dont seem to have one:...

About vaccins and affidavit of support for Algerian selectees.

Jun 24th 2016
Yesterday I booked the medical examination appointement and the secretary set it a day before the interview.Is it normal ?
Then I asked her about vaccins she told me that I have to make only 4 vaccins: DPT and anti hepatitis B. Is it enough?
At last, I want to know from Algerian who attended the interview before if the CO requires the affidavit of support automatically or $10 000 on my account would be sufficient?
Thanks for help

Tracking GC delivery via USCIS ELIS

Jun 21st 2016
Hi folks,

I have successfully moved to southwest Florida about a month ago and I'm waiting to receive the plastic Green Card in mail. I was wondering if the USCIS ELIS system where as folks remember had to pay your Immigrant Fee after you've received your visa but before you moved the US, can be used to track progress on delivery of your plastic card. My status as well as all of my family members is currently "In Process". Those of you who have already received your cards in mail, can you...

The "been there done that" thread: life in the US after DV

Jun 18th 2016
Maybe mods can make this sticky. I think it'll be worthwhile- it's always interesting to see the progress other people have made when you are on a similar path. The idea is to add links to blogs etc here rather than fill this thread with posts. The ones below are the ones I am aware of/can remember ... Apologies if I forgot anyone but please add on.

DV 2016 Administrative Processing Cases

Jun 17th 2016

This Thread is intended for those under AP to share their stories, and encourage one another; or get encouragement from other forum members as they wait to complete the process. Attached are links to some past AP Threads which some of you may find...
