Biometrics Appointment documents needed - new passport requested - 3 week wait

4 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

hi

i received biometrics notice today and it's scheduled for 12/23/2016. The notice says to bring ID, passport . Last week I went to Polish consulate to get my passport renewed. They took the old one and said the new one will be delivered in about 3 weeks. I hope to get it before the bio date. If that's not the case should i call to reschedule or just take a copy of my passport visa page and NY DL and hope that's enough ? I don't want to get turned away. Thanks

i just found this

https://www.uscis.gov/forms/forms-information/preparing-your-biometric-services-appointment

says if i bring copy of the notice and valid DL it should be enough to process me. fingers crossed.

Even though the notice says to bring ID, passport ... the intent is for you to bring government-issued ID with your picture on it. Other than your passport, you bring your valid DL.

You must have a photocopy of your old passport. Bring that along to explain where your passport is located.

If you have any other government-issued ID with your picture on it, bring it along. You should be good to go for biometrics.

i only have a copy of the visa page in my passport, not the bio page. will that be enough + valid US ID (NY DL)? i can also take copy of birth cert and translation if necessary. The Polish consulate said it should take 3 weeks to get the new passport. I went to get the replacement on 12/2. 3 weeks from that is exactly 12/23 which is my bio appt date. but with xmas break it may get delayed. hopefully not. if they tell me at the appt time that the visa copy and BC is not enough can i reschedule on the spot ? or do i have to do it now and follow the instruction on the NOA ?
