View Full Version : USICS status online - AP/EAD

I am trying to understand the lingo of USCIS w/o using my own imagination.

AP - "Document mailed to the applicant" - Should we assume that the case is approved and the document is mailed to the applicant OR will this be an RFE.

It is my first time to apply for AP and wasn't sure how should I take this message. Also, how long does it typically take to receive the AP approval.

EAD - "Card production ordered" - This is pretty straight forward I guess. The EAD application is approved and card production is ordered. Is the "card production ordered" same as "card mailed" ?

Again, not sure about the USCIS lingo....therefore I thought ask people who've already been through this.

Thanks for your time.

EAD -Card production is different from mailed.Comes directly 2 U in 2 weeks
