Hey. Not yet. I was told to wait for three more weeks they'll arrive together with my social security number. Unfortunately I can't start any job without them. So I'll just wait and hope they get here before I leave
In addition to Susie’s response the GC and SSN will not arrive together, they are processed by different administrations. If you’ve already been in the US for about 2 weeks and your SSN hasn’t shown up in the mail, you need to visit the SSA office and apply for the SSN in person. You will need the SSN for the job.

OMG really? I didn't know. Just yesterday my friend hooked me up with a temporary job and I told him I don't have my card yet. Thanks for this I hope the job is still there and I'll use my passport.
I’m surprised you didn’t know that, it is often discussed on this forum. Anyway see
https://www.uscis.gov/i-9-central/131-list-documents-establish-identity-and-employment-authorization
And scroll down to where it says “TEMPORARY I-551 PRINTED NOTATION ON A MACHINE-READABLE IMMIGRANT VISA (MRIV)”
 
Hi all

Ok so my case has gone under administrative processing on Thursday 20th September. With only 5 days to go, have I still got a chance in getting the visas? Not sure how it works when cases go to AP

Unfortunately, not many organizations know that the stamped DV visa becomes a temporary LPR Card, especially the private one.
Well you have official links to show them, it is on the official list of authorized work documents as I posted before
And your social security number proves work authorization as well
 
Most people wouldn’t have received such a letter. You received it because of the issues with your medical exam. Was there an annotation on your visa?
Ohhh gosh I got sooo excited when I got my visa that I didn't bother to check anything else. I have just seen it "Class A or B (TB) required my sputum test was negative though so I guess they want to check if I'm 100% okay. Thanks Simon.

Was about to say the same thing, there must have been a note in your envelope for a follow-up check upon arrival.
 
Thanks I'll keep waiting. Did anyone receive a letter from the health department to go for a TB test?[/QUOT
