To which Potomac Service center location was your application sent?

I forwarded my application to a lockbox facility in Dallas. It was then re-routed to a potomac service center (IDK if there are multiple such facilities)

Hi @jaychatterjee,

How did you raise SR thru Phone? I called them but I couldn’t get through to the right department.

I don't remember how I navigated their automated system, but if you listen to options correctly, you will come across an option to talk to a customer representative. I know the option for that is by pressing 0, just not sure in which menu.

Hi Jay, thanks for all your replies. Did you receive an approval notice also before you received your card?

Today I just received the approval notice but not the card, and it says I’ll get the card separately. I was wondering if that’s normal or should I contact USCIS.

That is normal. Even though I got both the same day, I think it's common for ppl to receive both on separate days. I wouldn't call USCIS
