My Experience with the Biometrics Appointment

4 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

I wanted to put up a quick post to help out any others that may be in a similar situation.

After filing my I-765 (received NOA June 14), I got a biometrics appointment for July 1st, but received the appointment letter only two days before and was unable to travel to Dallas for the appointment. I faxed and mailed my paper in, requesting a new interview date, because there was a box at the bottom that stated if you couldn't make the scheduled appointment, you could reschedule. After waiting 3 weeks and hearing nothing, I wrote a letter and called the 1-800 number a couple of times (without much success).

On Friday, July 28th, I received an appointment letter for an appointment on JULY 22. The envelope was postmarked JULY 26 (4 days after the appointment). In tears, I called the 1-800 number again and the woman suggested I write another letter. I felt this would be futile, so this morning I took all the letters and paperwork with me to Dallas and showed up at the Biometrics center, ready to beg for an appointment. The security guard didn't bat an eyelash at the interview date and it took only 10 minutes for me to be seen and fingerprinted and photographed. When I asked the worker about this interview dates and letters, she told me you have 87 days from the date of the interview to show up for an appointment on Wednesdays or Saturdays. It doeasn't say this ANYWHERE on the piece of paper.

I was glad I decided to drive all that way, but it would have been nice to know this 4 weeks ago. Hope it helps someone else.
