i answered that in my first response. Anyway there is nothing you can do for now. I will note that your wife’s status changed to production much faster than seems usual right now.
Yeah I will wait and try to be patient. It is getting kinda funny though, my wife's card has been already picked up by USPS, expected delivery early next week, exactly 4 weeks after entering, mine still stuck on same. I am wondering whether they are updating only one of the receipt numbers by error or something, I paid both of our immigration fees within one payment, I've read aome stories on other forums where one of the cases was stuck on the tracker, but they carda arrived together.

Hello everyone.
I was given a "Vaccination Documentation Worksheet", Form number DS-3025, (together with the sealed brown envelop and the X-ray CD) after the interview. Do I need to take this with me and show it to the immigration officer when I enter the US? This document is a separate 1 sheet document and is not inside the sealed brown envelop.

If it’s a separate one it’s for your own use. If you have school age kids these are useful as it “translates“ vaccinations received in a way US people can understand so can be used as proof of vaccinations. For adults there’s not really a use for it for most circumstances.

Hi Susie! One more things regarding this particular issue if I may. My wife received her card today, mine is still stuck on payment received. I was thinking, do you think the receipt number can explain any of this? We have very different receipt numbers and mine seems much higher. Might there be any relevance?

Regarding the vaccination requirement effective from Nov 8. I have read through the CDC documents but cannot find precise requirements regarding age and vaccinations. What is the minimum age requiring vaccination? Kindly point me to the relevant DoS/CDC guidance.
Both parents are fully vaccinated. Kids aged 15,13 and 7 are not vaccinated yet and also not eligible in South Africa to get vaccinated. Planning to to fly on Nov 22

The requirement is for visitors. You are immigrant visa holders. Just worry about the required test within 3 days before arriving.

Hi @SusieQQQ

My current passport that has temporary I-551 + entry stamp, is about to expire. I'm planning to travel outside US, so I'm going to renew my passport.

Do I need to request another I-551 on the new passport?

When did you enter/get the stamp? have you paid the immigrant fee? You can use the old stamp plus new passport afaik though it’s not ideal, but normally by the time someone’s passsport used for entry is expiring they have their plastic green card already. This is part of why they ask for your passport to be valid for 6 months after your intended date of entry.

Thank you for the reply. I entered in September and I have paid the immigrant fee, but I haven't got my plastic green card.

My passport will expire in early May 2022, but I'm gonna travel during December. My passport validity will be less than 6 months by that time, that's why I'm thinking of renewing my passport.

Is it risky to use old stamp + new passport? Do you think I should cancel the travel just to be safe?

You should have your plastic card by December.

Did you recently email KCC? Or a while ago to which you did not receive a response back then? The above email seems like of the the generic response (they tend to send) to one you might have sent them.
