USCIS Announces Permanent Resident Card Delays

On 5/29/09 USCIS announced delays of up to eight weeks in the delivery of permanent resident cards while the agency is in the process of upgrading its card production equipment. USCIS will therefore issue I-551 stamps as temporary evidence of permanent residence to approved applicants after their adjustment interviews. Applicants whose applications were approved subsequent to their interviews may request an I-551 stamp by scheduling an INFOPASS appointment.
