going early to biometrics appt?

I have read on here that once you are scheduled for your appt, it is ok to go get it done. Is that true for all states? My SIL has his appt for 12/30 and we were all hoping to go on a little mini vacation while the kids are off from school. Immigration is so unfriendly that I don't want him to go early and get his butt reamed out for being there early!

What does he all need to take for that appt? I think he will be close to the office tomorrow.

thanks

I've not seen/read of anyone being reamed (or turned away) from going to a biometrics appointment earlier than scheduled.

Take with you:

  • Original Biometrics Appointment letter
  • ID (passport, State ID, Driver's license, etc).
  • Marriage Certificate (if name change)

The whole thing takes about 10 minutes once your turn is called. Fingerprints and photo and out the door.

I don't think it should be a problem going to bio earlier than scheduled. Although, the ASC where we went, had a notice stating that only those with an appointment for that day will be allowed to get his/her bio done, you may want to check....

Take your biometrics appointment letter (They will stamp your bio appt letter) as well as your passport and marriage certificate. You just got to fill out a form with basic info and receipt numbers. Then they call you up, take your prints & picture, this process takes only about 5 minutes and you are out.

thank you both for your responses! I will kep my fingers crossed

I agree with the other people that posted..my husband was scheduled to get his biometrics done on Monday but he'll be in England visiting family; he heard that our local USCIS office did walk-ins on Wednesday so gave it a try this morning; he was in and out in about 15 minutes. He said they don't even really check the date on your letter; they just want to make sure you have one. Good luck..hopefully it'll go as smoothly for you as it did for my hubby!

We did that. Call your assigned center and ask what days they take walk ins.

Good luck!

call? I don't think there is any way to call our center. You have to make an appt on the computer just to talk to them. Anyhow, he was in the area ysterday so they went in and it was done no problem

thanks for the tips everyone

ps- now that BM is done, what can we expect next?

Probably in a month or so after biometrics you should see your EAD & AP approved. As far as I-485, we haven't had any updates on ours since biometrics update on it.....
