    Card is being produced.
    We have approved your Form OS155A, Immigrant Visa and Alien Registration, Receipt Number IOE******************. On July 24, 2017, we ordered your card to be produced. We will mail your card to the address you gave us.

    BUT when I checked it again the other day, the date has now been changed to August 26, 2017. (Instead of July 24, 2017, with the same card is being produced message)

    I entered US July 11, 2017. I paid for my USCIS fee on June 30 before coming to US.

    Has anyone gone through the same situation?
    Another question, am I allowed to work without the pr CARD yet? I have a Immigrant visa that says, "temporary I-551 valid for one year"

    Hi, I've been on this thread for a long time and still can't figure out what I'm doing wrong.

    I paid the $220 fee in April and entered the US earlier this month, nearly 2 weeks ago. Using this payment receipt number starting with IOE there has been absolutely NO updates since I made the payment. It just says "payment has been made".

    I understand the actual green card can take up to 4 months but shouldn't there be some kind of status change?

    Am I supposed to be using the receipt from when I paid the fee at the interview?

    No to both questions. Just need some patience. Nothing at all happens on the GC till you enter irrespective of when you pay. Next update as far as I recall will be when the card goes into production. Last I've heard GCs pretty quick right now, taking around a month at the moment.
