    Card LUD


    My case online status indicates "card production ordered." Will there be another update when card is mailed? Also, does this mean I don't have to get my passport stamped?

    Thank you so much for your time.

    No need.

    You probably are holding the beautiful card in your hand now, if not, you will receive it very soon. No need to do passport stamp.

    Please understand that this is a sticky thread created three years ago, and most information are outdated by now.

    You no longer need a stamp on your passport because most people get their green card in the mail within one week or so, after 485 approval. In a rare case when you haven't received your card, but need to travel abroad, you may go to an Infopass and get your passport stamped.
