Hi,

I recently sent in my N-400 application and got the NOA 3 weeks ago and I'm waiting for my FP letter at this point

Its been a while since USCIS took my FP and now I am wondering if they use the one usually taken at the PoE when returning to the U.S to process the application as I just returned from a trip from overseas?

Thanks!!

No, anything older than 12 months will require new set of fingerprints.

Why don't you sing up for the April tracking group, that can give you an idea when to expect FP, Interview....

Hi and Welcome to VJ!

Depending on your ASC, you may get it a little later - there is nothing to worry now. However, when scanning your prints at the POE, I think they just double check your prints with the ones that are linked to your A# (when you got your GC). I think they also double check them with FBI.... but they aren't meant to get a "new" set of biometrics.

Would you like to be added as milimelo asked?

This deals with USCIS procedure, send in your application, receive a biometrics appointment on and I-797c, need to bring that with you at your appointed time or they won't even let you in, have to hand print a form that says just about the same thing as your I-797c, then they scan your prints. Took us all but five minutes our last and third time, excluding another 450 mile trip. Not even sure why, our last prints were only 11 months old, and your prints aren't even included in your USC certificate. But if you want your USC, you do what you are told.

Your fingerprint is on your greencard, think they could use that. Congress asked the USCIS why they charge another 80 bucks if its already in the database, it is just like a *.jpg file, USCIS said it costs that much to retrieve it. With your greencard, same price, but they also take your picture, for USC, you have to provide your own.

You just do it, some never received their biometrics appointment, USCIS decided to use the ones on file, but they don't inform you of this, so you wait and wonder.
