Fingerprints need to be re-taken.. WTH??

5 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

Hello VJ family!

I did my biometrics for EAD and AOS on December 17. Two weeks later I received another Biometrics

appointment for AOS only stating that "FBI was unable to process my fingerprints blah-blah and they need to be re-taken".

So, my question is, since the 2nd Biometrics appointment says "Case type: AOS" ,

does that mean I may still receive my EAD on time, or will my EAD be delayed too?

Thanks so much!

More than likely this will not delay EAD, EAD has no background checks as far as I know.

Visa issues, and lots of info about the Guangzhou and Hong Kong consulate.

Biometrics are also required for EAD, so it's possible it could delay the EAD as well. Best of luck.

Another VJ member here got the same letter from USCIS, but they DID get their AP and EAD, even though the letter stated that the FBI couldn't process the fingerprints. They do use the biometrics photo and a fingerprint image on the EAD card, but as far as I know they don't need to complete FBI background checks in order to issue an EAD.

I was called to do biometrics again since my fingerprints didn't pass. When i went there second time i was told that my fingerprints are keep being rejected and that it doesn't work. No need to say how sad i was... So for my interview, knowing that if I don't have proof they would decline the green card i went to the police office and asked for proof that i wasn't arrested, went to the court house to ask if they give anything like that but they said that police proof is good enough...

So at my interview I was not asked for police documents but I gave it and explained that my fingerprints didn't go true. They sad oh yes they did, and they checked in computer and they were right.

So for those that have problems with fingerprints, they might be accepted after 2 times going there... Make sure you press your fingers on that scaning machine. I heard that is not possible to pass it if you didn't pass it first time, so there is hope as you can see.

if it doesn't, don't forget the police report that you haven't been arrested!

Good luck! If you have any questions feel free to ask me :)
