For Those Whose Fingerprints Do Not Recognize On The Biometric Machine

3 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

Hello All:

We went to the Biometrics appointment today and disappointingly enough, my wife's fingerprints were poorly recognized by the machine (as happened in the I-485 process).

For those select "lucky" few that have encountered this problem, the technician recommended that if the fingerprints are not recognized, that upon receiving the notification to re-do the biometrics, to go out and buy corn huskers lotion, which is supposed to be a heavy duty lotion that moisturizes dry skin and can enhance the ridge detail of fingerprints (which was the problem here). Supposedly, as soon as that notice is received, start the lotioning up 5 times a day with that stuff and the night before, lotion up your hand and sleep with a glove on to ensure that the fingerprint takes.

Seriously worth the effort. At this point in time, if the second fingerprint fails, I have read here that it involves getting the police clearances all over again from all the places of residence (I am assuming this means overseas too) - a real fun endeavor last time... :wacko:

Hope it helps whoever has this problem.

Wow - I'm definitely going to try this. I don't think my hands are dry, but the ridges are 'worn' away with so much typing... Had a long time at the ASC for I-751 and did ink and paper also. Really not looking forward to the next and hopefully last biometrics for N400...

Thanks so much for sharing!
