    The background clearance checks vary and can be a few weeks to a few months. Keep following up with the asylum office to see what the status is every month or so until you get an answer and keep track of all your inquiries.

    There is no such thing as an absolute time frame and it takes a different length of time for everyone. But a recommended approval is a good sign (congratulations). Once you get the actual i-94 card with the stamp "asylum granted" you will be able to apply for the EAD and the SSN. One year after the grant of asylum, you will be eligible to apply for your permanent residence.

    Ms. Lana,

    Thank you very much for you immediate response, I appreciate that alot, and I would like to make you some more questions if you dont mind?!!

    1, What is a background check, and how does this procedure goes?
    2. If I can find a job, can I start working than produce a EOD, and SSN, after obtaining it?

    3. DO you think that it will take more than 6 months to get I-94 and sylum granted?

    Thnx in advance..

    What makes you think it was sent to the wrong address? How would they have this address unless you had provided it on your application? If you have since moved, it was your responsibility to notify them of your new and correct address. You may have to inquire with the Asylum Office and to see whether the asylum approval was returned to them as undeliverable, in which case, they will be able to resend it to you at the correct address once you provide it.

    Please let me know if you have any additional questions or need further assistance with this matter.

    Ok I was lucky and came to get an original notice and I-94, even though i made mistake in the mail number.
    But I still have to correct that mistake in asylum office, the change of the address numbers, and I am thinking to do that next Monday, since I have appointment to obtain my EOD.
    SO will INS make any problem if I do that change of address the same day I go to collect EOD?
    And can I go and apply for SSN, before obtaining the EOD, and what documents I need to take with me, for SSN?

    Thanks alot you have been very helpfull.

    No, you should not have any issues, just explain the error and make sure that their records are corrected for purposes of receiving any future correspondence to the correct address.
