Biometrics Walk-in

4 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

Heyyy!!!

I was a little iffy about doing a walk-in but as I had a day off today I decided to try. Got there and asked if I could and the supervisor asked me why I can't come on the appointed date. I explained I have the day off and decided to check if it was possible. He responded, "Ma'am since we are slow right now I'll let you do it, but in future make sure you come on the appointed date." I said ok and smiled :) They were only 2 people ahead of me lol. Some that worked there later explained he has to say that but they actually do like walk-ins because if the center doesn't seem busy they could cut jobs.

So... if you live close, try a walk-in, you lose NOTHING!!!! Oh and if it helps, I read on here thats its better to go towards the end of the week. Today is thursday, I went at 1.25p and was out of there in 20mins.

Hope this helps, good luck to everyone on the the rest of their journey!!! Myself included :)

Hey I did the same thing I could not make my allotted appointment time and waited and waited for a new letter it never came. We also did a walk-in in Atlanta thought pppfff what the heck and it was so quiet they took me too. Mind you when the guy at the door checked they could not find my original appointment anywhere on the system so thank goodness I went for a walk-in. They were great to me in and out in 30 mins.
