    Just got my plastic card. Just curious about two questions:

    1. what does "E26" mean under the category?
    2. why does the plastic card called "green card"? it's front face is light yellow color rather than green.

    E26: You got GC in EB2 category and you got it the 485 route.
    It used to green in color, colors changed but the name stuck.

    Congrats on receiving the card.

    Today my online message changed to,

    "On February 1, 2005, after approving your application, we ordered you a new card. Your card will be mailed to you as soon as it is ready."

    Can you tell me how long it took you to receive your card from this message?

    In 3 days I am going for a month vacation(international).

    I got it within 3-4 business days after that message. Its very close to your vacation plan. If you are too concern about flying without card, then you might think to postpone by few days/week, if suits you.

    The category for my green card is E19. What does that mean? I was the dependent of EB1 application. Can the immigration officers distinguish the primary and dependent applicants based on the E#?

    What is the difference between the following two categories?

    E36=EB3, skilled workers, status adjusted.
    E37=EB3, with Bachelors degree, status adjusted

    My I-140 was filed under EB3- "Skilled worker" category but the plastic card came with E37. Does it make sense? Please elaborate and advise.

    1). E36=EB3, skilled workers, status adjusted. (Filed 485 in the States),
    Education level is below university, for example college, high school ..., but they have some special skill like repairing auto, dealer in casino, cookers ...

    those kind EB applicants should not be easy to get approved now.

    2). E37=EB3, with Bachelors degree, status adjusted (Filed 485 in the States)
    The only difference between E36 and E37 is bachelor or non-bachelor degree, BSIS may upgrade you when they found you are bachelor ;)

    Hi all

    coming to all these codes, I recently did my passport stamping in Newark, NJ on 2 February 2005 and on the same page as the ADIT stamp, they have written my EAC#, I-485 RD and "approval as I-797 I-485". Then they wrote 2 Feb as the date and not 18 january which was my approved date and also they have written E37 on the left side and on the right they have written New E32?

    Why did they write E37 and New E32?

    Note: Mine was EB3 with bachelors and I-485

    Please reply
