Recommended Posts

Hey, got my biometrics appointment, but have a vague memory that when I did it for the AoS application, I went in one morning before my scheduled date and did it with no problem.

Anyone know if I can still do tis and can point me in the right direction bout how to do this in NYC?

You can try although they do not have to accept you early again. If your location is again at Varick Street, try a "walk-in" there. It's not too far a walk from the subway station and I think it's worth a try. My biometrics were scheduled in the Bronx the day before I was moving so I really didn't need to walk in early although when I arrived, the office was practically empty and they actually asked me why I didn't walk in earlier. I suspect downtown is MUCH busier. Good luck!
