When will your “green card” arrive in the mail?

After an adjustment of status interview and I-485 approval, your green card will usually arrive about one week after USCIS orders that the card to be produced. You can check the status of your case online at USCIS.gov at “Case Status”  using the receipt number on the of your USCIS notices. Usually you will see updates after the interview explaining if the case is under review, approved, or denied, or if a request for evidence has been issues, or if the green card is in production or already in the mail. 

However, if you enter the US on an immigrant visa (meaning, your case was processed through a US Embassy or Consulate), you will receive your green card about 30 to 120 days after you enter the US for the first time using your immigrant visa.
