Repeat Biometrics appointment after 11 months with no explanation

Hi all,

Has anyone experienced having to repeat their Biometrics appointment after a long time and with no explanation why that would be necessary?!

My wife's application at TSC has a Feb. 2007 NOA1 date and we did her Biometrics in March 2007. Her USCIS profile shows a last updated date of March '07 reflecting that some activity happened on her file (however there is no mention that Biometrics was completed).

Last week I got a surprising letter from TSC which was a REPEAT appointment letter for Biometrics! This is almost 11 months since the original appointment! The letter is almost identical to the previous appointment letter with absolutely no mention why this needs to be repeated or if there were any problems with the previous one!

I called customer service and they provided no help, basically reading some standard texts to me and saying that you need to make the 3-hour drive to the USCIS center for your appointment regardless of what has happened to the previous one and there is no way to find out what's going on!

My initial guess was that they had mixed up my N-400 application (which I filed in December '07) and its fingerprinting session with I-751's Biometrics but I was told that is probably not the case by the customer rep!

Has anyone had to repeat their Biometrics and after this long?! I wonder how long this could add to the wait!

Thanks in advance,

Amir

I understand your frustration with having to make a long trip back to get biometrics done again, but there really isn't anything you can do about it. If you don't go, that will be a huge problem to fix later.

The last fingerprints you provided could just possibly not have been good enough, and they need a retake.

You could possibly ask them the reason when you go to your appointment.

Hopefully, this will get sorted out shortly.

Just bumping this becasue I just got the same repeat appt for biometrics after a long wait and being outside the processing time.

I am really curious about the outcome of this case and the reasons for a repeat biometrics appt.

Thanks!
