Guys .. I just received welcome email for me and my wife. I came to US in Aug '98 on H1B. Applied GC first time in 2000 and my labor was approved in April 2001 and before I could apply for 140 division shutodwn then again applied in Apr 2002 , but this time company itself was shutdown
and then finally applied again in May'04 and stayed with the same company. Finally got "Notice mailed welcoming the new permanent resident." mail for me and my wife.

Thx for help and support.

Btw, I have an Infopass appointment tomorrow. I was going to cancel it but before I do wanted to take some advice regarding the following statement.
"Your new permanent resident card should be mailed within 60 days following this registration or after you complete any ADIT processing referred to in the welcome notice, whichever is later."
Is this regarding biometrics. Should I just keep my scheduled Infopass and get this completed. Any suggestions?

Default Ideally visa numbers should have exhausted

snddlth,
I guess you were right to hear about visa number exhaustion...but then you see more approvals....but it is ceratin rate of approvals have gone down and still many with older PDs are waiting.....Well don't know what to trust..

I guess no one has a clue....

Thanks..so there couple of instances of 3-4 weeks after it has been assigned to couple of instances of 10 days..Hoping for the shorter wait....Now someone is mentioning about visa numbers getting getting exhausted - the timing of this is becoming crucial.

Default Jan 04 - TSC - EB2-I Approved

My sincere thanks to all of you and this forum in helping me get through this long wait to GC. This is my 13th Years on H1 and what looks like an eternity on GC wait. Finally, I just received the Card Production Ordered message for myself and my wife.

I was fortunate enough to stay with the same employer and except for the single RFE (medical) the wait was fairly uneventful. I didn't raise any Service Requests, Queries etc and let it run its course. In the last couple of weeks however, I was tempted to contact USCIS to find out why the approvals were coming in a completely random sequnce, but the futility of such an attempt kept me from doing it. This is afterall USCIS, there is no method to the madness here.

Here is my case in a nutshell

PD: 5 Jan 2004. I 140 and 485 filed separately. 485 mailed in early July 2007 but official receipt date is Aug 17 2007 and the notice date is Oct 11 2007. First FP in Dec 2007 and second FP a couple of weeks ago on Aug 29 2009.

Again, my sincere Thanks to you all and my very best wishes for a speedy processing for all those who are waiting.

I feel we are being too optimistic with the numbers. Not that I do not wish the dates to move forward. If dates move to Feb 2006 then I will be current. I am myself tired with the wait. It has already screwed my career because of this same job thing. I am so desperate to pick up new skills and move up the value chain. The reason I am not so optimistic is I feel we have no confirmation on spill over every quarter. Then I dont want something like 2009 to happen again. In 2008 dates were Mid 2006 and then in 2009 all we could clear was All 2004.

The only ray of hope is Oct bulletin did not go back. I admit I was wrong because I thought it will. This was pleasant suprise.

She also said its little weird that my case is approved and my wifes case is pending.
Does anyone see this thing happenning ?
Anyone else in this boat ??? My spouse who is the primary applicant got approval notice and my status is still 'pending'. God knows why I wasn't approved when I am the dependant.

I believe many cases will be assigned a visa number, hence the visa numbers are exhausted. This happened last year too, when we saw approvals in October 2008, since the visas were assigned to these cases in September 08 .

These assigned visa cases will be approved in the latter half of the month. However, if you call TSC or NSC they will say visas are exhausted....

I believe based on what I see, all of 2004 PDs should get visas by Oct 31, 2009.
