was a breeze hapydancsmil.gif

Richard's appointment was for 9 am, we got there about 15 minutes early. The facility is in an industrial building at Drummond Rd & Byberry Rd in the Far NE in Philly. It's brand spanking new. The people were very nice and we were in and out in less than 30 minutes. BUT it was early and plenty of people were arriving while we were there, so I suspect we may have been lucky.

The big tip is leave your cell phone mobile1.gif in the car or at home...There is more than one sign and the guard asks you if you have a cell phone when you go to check in (I had already read the signs and went back and deposted them in the car).

any questions anyone has don't hestiate to ask....now we just wait goodsigh.gif

Glad it went so smoothly for you! I just realized that I never updated about Niall's experience, but his was a breeze as well. His appt. was at 11am, but he wasn't sure where he was going, so he showed up extra early. They took him thirty minutes early, were extremely pleasant, and he was in and out in about fifteen minutes.

Now we wait as well!

Hi, I'm just beginning to learn about AOS and I-751 for my wife.

I'm trying to learn about the biometrics appointment.

Can you tell me what they do at this appointment and what we would need to bring.

We will have to drive 250 miles to Portland, Oregon, which is the nearest office. To bad we have to be there in person.

Anyway, I thankyou in advance..... Mike
