I remember reading somewhere that biometrics are good for 16 months, i.e. that if your fingerprints remain in the database and can be used for a name check for 16 months. I may be completely misremembering or making this up, of course. Does anyone have any info on this? I last had my biometrics taken for Removal of Conditions in Feb. 08, and I am wondering if there is a chance I may not need to be fingerprinted again for my Naturalization application.

Thanks much!

My former attorney said biometrics are good for 6 months. My wife had to do it again after 10 months.

Ah, so it was 6, not 16! :) Thanks!

From what I've seen 15 months.

Google it!

As far as I know, it is valid for 15 months.

But since this is enforced by FBI, it can be changed at any time wiithout notice. :whistle:

Also, depending on Interview officer and/or USCIS employee, they can ask you to take fingerprint around 10 months after your previous fingerprint if he/she doesn't want to have delay for missing fingerprint result upon interview.

Fingerprint itself is very simple.

When you take fingerprint from ASC, usually USCIS get the result from FBI within 24 hours.

Not like FBI namecheck, which may takes sometimes a couple of years. :angry:
