Hi there!

I had my biometrics this morning, and as expected, they had a hard time with my fingers..too thin to see any lines!!!

( I had the same problem when i had it back in the US embassy in our country when i applied for my tourist and k3 visa--they had to put some explainations/notations for it to be accepted, so i can proceed. )

The guy who assisted me said I might receive a notice to go back for the 2nd time to do it all over again, if they reject the one i had earlier--(THEY meaning USCIS..NBI? i dont know). And if they reject the 2nd one again, I might need to submit a police clearance.

Im ok with going back and taking it again, and/or providing them with a police clearance if thats what it takes for my application to move on. The only thing i hate about it is, it will definitely delay the processing of my application ( AOS and EAD) .

I just want to know if anyone experienced the same scenario, and if ever, how long did it take to receive the notice for the 2nd biometrics..days? weeks? after the first biometrics schedule?

Thanks in advance.

I had the same problem, it took almost 1 month to receive the second biometrics appointment letter :(

I also have thin fingers, but I never knew that was the reason why my fingerprints could not be read. I asked the Officer the second time I went and he told me that it was probably a problem with their system, rather than a problem with me. But who knows..

Good luck on getting your second appointment soon!

really that long?! but i noticed in your timeline that you got your EAD card before receiving your 2nd biometrics appt letter...so they approved your EAD and yet you had to take a 2nd biometrics? i thought they needed the biometrics for the processing of whatever application we submitted.

Yeah, apparently the fact that they could not read my fingerprints did not affect my EAD process, because I got it a day before receiving the second letter for the biometrics.

Good luck on getting your second appointment soon! I know how frustrating waiting for something you have already done can be :(

As expected, i got a new ASC appointment notice for my biometrics dated July 31, 2009:

THE FBI WAS UNABLE TO PROCESS YOUR FINGERPRINT CARD. IN ORDER FOR THE USCIS TO CONTINUE PROCESSING YOUR APPLICATION, IT WILL BE NECESSARY TO HAVE YOUR FINGERPRINTS RE-TAKEN. THIS WILL BE COMPLETED AT NO ADDITIONAL EXPENSE TO YOU.

My second biometrics schedule will be on August 20 at 3pm. well, im expecting for it to be rejected again that's why we're already looking at how to obtain a police clearance in our area.

It's a good thing this is just for my AOS and didn't affect my EAD. My EAD was already approved last July 31.
