I and my spouse got US citizenship in Dec 2008. Got US Passports in Jan'09.
We have a kid born in USA.
We are planning to R2I and need help with completing PIO application. We are applying for PIO because we need to go to India in 2 months and OIC is taking long time.
Thanks for all the good wishes. I was tense when I received the OATH letter and thought some thing is WRONG. But the USCIS saga proves one thing. In the short term systems are right but in the long run if you have the right documentation system can be made right to reflect the actual. Also keep...
Yes the IO returned my certificate of citizenship after making a copy of it. My passport is also valid and there will be no issue with that. The IO said sorry that I have to make an additional trip.
Thanks for the good wishes.
Today I visited DO after scheduling an Infopass.
1. The IO looked at my Citizenship certificate and was completely surprised. The IO looked at my OATH letter and acknowledged there is a mistake and took my certificate inside and returned after 5 minutes
2. The IO said my case...
Friends Thanks for your encouraging words and help. Here is the latest update.
Called USCIS and spoke to an officer. The officer is friendly and patient.
1. The officer asked me to schedule an Infopass to discuss my case. There was no update made after I completed the interview so...
1. The Org seems to have lost my paper trail after my interview. The interview happened in Nov and after 1 month I was scheduled for oath. After 14 days of my interview I received the letter in mail to appear for OATH. Curiously IO was silent about the whole thing. It appears that...
Thanks for the feedback
It is wonderful to get so much thoughtful ideas from the members. I appreciate your inputs and suggestions.
Today I had called the USCIS again and asked for the level 1 agent to transfer me to IO after discussing about my case. The Agent agreed and an IO was on the...
I got my GC in June 2002 and applied for N-400 in July 2007. So there should not be any time issue.
I was told by the agent that they might give me a new cerificate of citizenship in the oath ceremony and I might have to surrender my existing one because it never existed in the...
I completed my US citizenship at Jacksonville in December and received certficate of citizenship. I also applied for US passports and received them by December end.
Then out of blue today I received a letter to appear for Oath ceremony on February 3rd at Jacksonville. I am totally...

Happy Thanksgiving Holidays for all the Immi members.
I have a question about privileges for a GC holder. Does GC gets any additional benefits in the home country?
For example if the GC holder commits a crime in his home country is he punishable under US laws or his home country
Could any of you post
1.The number to call to find out the status of GC
2. The Fax number where to find out the status of GC
3. Any web site or source of information to find out the status.
The general rule is you must apply for Reentry permit while you are in USA, I believe in job situation like yours, you are still treated as US employee working overseas. As long as you are paying Taxes and show proof of residence in USA, you must be fine. The law can...
I had my POE on May 3rd 2002. I got my card in 3 weeks and my spouse got hers. Mean while, I tried calling TSC number and it is always engaged. How did you get contact with the IIO? Do we have to call at any particualr time? Could you help sharing the fax number?
