Question on Biometrics in Naturalization

4 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

I got my FP (walk-in) done in Norfolk. They took my picture too. No hassles at all. Took me 10 min or so for the entire process. They had me fill a short appln and to be consistent with my N-400, I wrote (since there was no option to circle) "Black" for my eye color. But the guy that took my pic and FP checked Brown in the drop down box. I asked him abt it and he said it was ok (as they are pretty close) and he thot my eyes were any way brown (they do have a shade of brown but I've checked it as black every place I needed to). I justified to myself that it was perhaps the closest option he had in his drop down menu on the comp. My qn is - does this inconsistency with the N-400 create any issues?? Thanks

PS: - i dint get any response when I posted this on the july 2010-N400 forum, so reposting as a separate question..

here's what I know. Many cases the IO during the interview would change things on the application as they deem necessary so I don't think it will create a problem. The biometrics will be handled by the FBI and the application will be handled by USCIS. Eventually, USCIS will use what you provide on the application and not what a person checked on the biometrics machine.

I wouldn't worry about it a bit!
