When will I get my green card? 5 Answers as of August 10, 2011My husband filed for my and my baby boys immigration case and the status of the case is IR1. I want to ask that when will I get my green card? Will I get it on entering USA and living there for some time or will i get the green card at the airport?

After you enter the U.S. and advise them of your address, the CBP officer will collect the packets you got at the consulate and mail these to USCIS. Shortly thereafter you will each receive a Welcome Notice and your PR cards will be mailed to you. The Social Security numbers have already been requested if the paperwork was completed properly; but it doesn't hurt to check on this after you arrive. Note the validity date on the Immigrant Visas and make sure you enter the U.S. before that date.
