30 plus days no biometrics letter

5 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

AOS, EAD, AND AP forms have already been filed and sent by His Grace. We are definitely use to the waiting game, having been patient with the notorious Ghana embassy. But we can't help but worry that we haven't received the biometrics appointment letter and it's been 30 plus days. Is this normal? I also submitted a service request but just wanted to get more insight. Does the wait time change due to your area and if they are busy or not. I know others who submitted around our time and have all gotten their biometrics done. Our NoA date is 11/01/2016.

We waited 2 1/2 months for the biometrics letter and had the appointment 3 months after filing AOS. But then we got the EAD/AP card a week later, so it was almost within the standard 3 month time frame.
