I applied for green through marriage and after the interview my application was granted, but I am still waiting for my actual card. How long will it take? Can I travel without it?
I agree with my colleagues. I am most curious why you think it was approved. If the officer merely told you s/he was recommending it for approval, that does not mean it was actually approved. If you have nothing on paper (like the I-551 passport stamp), then check USCIS.gov and put in your receipt notice. You may have jumped the gun thinking it was approved. If you have the I-551 stamp, wait 2-3 weeks for the GC itself. If you don't get it, do an InfoPass.
