Default How does this card come ?

So, this so called nice card...how does it come?

I know its by USPS , but do they need you to sign or something... ?when you get the cover or package, ...or will it be sitting in the mail box one fine day sometime after ones case is approved ?

I might be out of the country perhaps when the card comes, (if I am lucky and my case is attended to by the authorities in July) .... (I will come back on AP)

Intially I was thinking of putting a hold on my mail in the post office...but my lawyer said that USPS sometimes returns mails from USCIS (which could be H1, EAD, AP, GCs, etc...)

So now am thinking I will request my neighbour to hold my mail for me....but am wondering if a signature is needed if the card comes during my absense....

Thanks for your replies Folks !!

I remeber reading something about it earlier on this forum but could not search it out/

Needs no signature and is mailed by regular first-class mail, in a simple small size white envelope without any USCIS markings.

Most certainly you can have it mailed outside or have someone carry it for you outside the US. It is not a passport and US law does not prohibit mailing the GC internationally.

It comes in a regular USCIS envelope which is not green. USPS puts it in your mailbox along with all junk mail. Congratulations.

Default Secure Mail Initiative

But wasn't there a recent update that USCIS will be using USPS delivery confirmation service to send out cards..

USCIS - USCIS Improves Delivery of Immigration Documents through Secure Mail Initiative


From Oh Law Firm -

05/02/2011: USCIS Secure Mail Initiative for Delivery of EAD, AP, and Green Cards by Priority Mail with Delivery Confirmation

USCIS has just released information that under a partnership with the U.S. Postal Services, USCIS has fully implemented the Secure Mail Initiative (SMI), which uses U.S. Postal Service (USPS) Priority Mail with Delivery Confirmation to deliver certain immigration documents in a safe, secure and timely manner. The SMI reportedly enables USCIS to confirm delivery of permanent resident cards and documents pertaining to travel and employment authorization. With USPS tracking information, USCIS customers can easily stay up-to-date on the delivery status of their documents and USCIS can confirm that these essential documents were delivered to the proper address. SMI provides USCIS customers many benefits of ability to track the status of their documents through USPS tracking system, quicker delivery documents through USPS Priority two to four business days sooner than with first-class mail, average three days, and customer's ability to contact USCISís Customer Service Center at 800-375-5283 to request tracking information for their documents. USCIS customer service representatives will provide customers with their USPS tracking number and current USPS delivery status "two weeks" (but not earlier) after getting their approval notice in the mail. For the details, please read the USCIS release.
It is, however, not clear the meaning of "Delivery Confirmation." Currently, the USPS uses two delivery confirmation options, one option requiring signature of the receiver and other option not requiring signature upon delivery. If it is the former, the customer should make it sure that the receiver is present to sign the delivery confirmation. As soon as this is clarified, we will post the information.

My wife received her green card on Friday so I think it is the latest info.

It comes by priority mail (in priority mail envelop), but no signature is required. No white envelop as old timers are suggesting.

Also the USCIS is extremely fast now a days. My wife received her green card in 5 days after finger printing (Finger printing on May 6; approval on May 9th; Green card received on May 13th) so when your dates become current and your case is straight forward you should have it in few days.

Default getting mailed out is good I guess then

thanks for the replies again...

Guess if mailing out of the country is an option I should ask my friend to do it, guess FEDEX or UPS is quite reliable.

So If I am lucky and my case gets picked/approved while in India then I can get the card mailed there...

but in any case, I have asked my company's lawyer also, will post here once I hear back from him...

Now begins another waiting game ...
