USCIS Brooklyn Biometrics Walk-In

8 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

Hello guys,

Just wanted to tell everyone who's got this office assigned (60th street) for their AOS biometrics appointment that today I just entered with my appointment letter and did everything in about 40 min total with no problem even if I was supposed to wait for a week more to have the appointment that I had assigned (I went at 9am).

No questions asked, just the officer at the door told me that if I had the letter with me there would be no problem.

Good luck everyone!

PS:
ALSO: it is totally ok to go to the appointment with your phone, just keep it in your pocket and everything is fine :)
