    EB3 India PD October 2002 aproval

    Hello all, I could not find any information for really old EB3 applications from India, so I thought I would put up my information here for any remaining EB3 India applicants from 2002 - for a while, I was sure I was the last one remaining, and everyone else has moved to EB2! (Actually that...

    Where do I send the AC21 letter

    Hello, I am sending a AC21 letter to USCIS. This isn't the first time, so I have everything I need to send the letter, but I do not remember where I sent the last letter! (Not that anything changed the last time I sent it!) In any case, my original I-485 was sent to Vermont back in 2004...

    Combination EAD and AP card!

    Hello, I don't know if this is old news to folks in the forums, but it was new to me, so I though I would share. I just received the approvals of my AP and EAD (filed together), and this time around, they send me a "combo" card, where the EAD acts like the AP. Its valid for 2 years, which...

    Are there any EB3-India approvals after the PD advances?

    Hello, I had expected some activity on this board after the PD advanced a little bit for EB3 India - but the only two approvals listed recently are EB2. Are there any EB3-India old timers (PD 2001/2002) who have been approved? Or are the Visa Bulletin dates misleading? Maybe all those...

    Is Vermont Office processing paper-based EAD/AP applications again?

    Hello, I had applied for my I-485 a long time ago (2004) at the Vermont office, and my application got moved to Texas some time in 2007. However, since then, I have applied for my EAD/AP renewals every year at the Dallas Lockbox, and I get a SRC**** case number - presumably from the Texas...

    Hello, I recently applied for EAD and AP for myself and spouse. I filled in the E-Notification of Application/Petition Acceptance G-1145 as well. I was very impressed when I got the text messages letting me know they received my applications. A few days later, I even got the paper copies...

    90 day prior to expiry rule for EAD?

    Hello, It is time for me to renew my EAD (again!) this year, and for some reason I seem to recall a "rule" that says you cannot apply for renewal more than 90 days prior to the expiration of the current EAD. However, I can 't see any language to that effect in either the instructions or in...

    AP Dallas Lockbox address in

    Hi - I am sending in my FedEx package for AP (I-131) to the Dallas Lockbox, and tells me that it is not a "match" in their system - that it may not be an accurate address. Has anyone else had this? I verified the address according to the instructions - so anyone had any problems...

    New passport and OCI

    Hi all, I got my OCI about 5 years ago, but now have a new passport. According to the NY CGI web site, those between 21-50 don't have to have a new OCI issued. Does that mean that I have to travel with the previous passport (and sticker)? So basically, has anyone done this - travel with...

    Finally some movement! (last LUD transfer 3/15)

    I was so sick of seeing the last LUD on our cases - 3/15! Your case has been received in the office... blah blah. Well, I got some movement at last, and as expected, its a RFE. I will wait to see what they want, but I expect its the medical skin test. This means that they are still...

    Hi all, I would appreciate some advice on my situation. I am still in the final stages of getting my LC - so I haven't even applied for I-140 yet. But I am playing around with the decision of whether to go for AOS or CP - I know the relative arguments of time vs. EAD and AC21 etc. But...
