Biometrics ...fingerprints rejected????

6 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

So I just walked out of my biometrics appointment for my adjustment of status, 2 of my fingersprints were "rejected" by the computer (left hand, ring finger and pinky) .. the lady tried a few times but nothing, then showed me the difference between one that wasn't rejected and the 2 that were and yeah there's a clear difference ...I asked if that's a problem or anything and she said there's nothing much they can do and it all depends on what the FBI says ? ...now I'm freaking out, is this going to affect my process, delay it? Has anybody had the same experience?

Hello,

The same thing happened to me during my first biometric appointment. A few weeks after the appointment, I got a letter for a second biometric appointment because FBI rejected my fingerprint.Apparently, this happens a lot with ladies from warmer climate because the smaller finger + dry skin in the winter makes it hard to get good prints. For my second biometric, I followed some tips I read online and got perfect fingerprints. Here are the tips:

1. Moisturize your hand everyday for at least 2 days before the biometric appointment.

2. Moisturize your hand the night before - before you go to bed

3. On the morning of your biometric appointment, do not touch any shampoo/soap that will dry up your fingers. Do not use moisturizer in the morning as well because that might make your finger too greasy.

Thank you so much for the tips, it sucks to have to come back, it's a 2 hours drive but oh well ...how many finger did you get rejected? 2 as well?

When I had mine, they had to scan a couple of fingers several times before they accepted.

Sometimes the machines just don't read them properly and the fingers aren't placed correctly.

Sucks that you have to drive back out but the long wait after biometrics is going to happen either way.
