question on biometrics

4 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

Can anyone tell me anything about the biometrics? Saylin's wiki site indicated to get to Montreal a day or two early for biometrics. Is this still the case? Are you notified that you have an appointment for them? Or does that come later now?

Thanks for any assistance.

biometrics is taken at the interview. Where do you see get there a day or two early?

Under Saylin's site in the "after NVC" portion there is a link about potential interview questions and tips for the interview. Another VJ'er offered tips linked to the site and #14 says to "arrive a few days early for biometrics and pickup medical results. Below that it talks about fingerprints taken at the interview. Not knowing what I don't know I made the mistaken assumption that they do fingerprints there at the interview and at an earlier time do biometrics which can involve iris scan etc.


My biggest concern about this is that I don't have enough fingerprint either digitally or by ink roll. I have a letter from the local police and Commissionaires office stating that but I don't want to have to tell them unless it comes to that. I was digitally fingerprinted twice because I was "paroled" into the U.S. because I was an intended immigrant, the Border Guards assumed their machine was not working. I let them assume :)

biometrics for US immigration is verifying your identity with government ID, a photo, and fingerprints. Since you'll have your passport and you're providing the photos, all they need is fingerprints.

If you do not fingerprint well, they can ask you to get fingerprints again either there, before a visa is issued, or afterwards in the USA.
