Missed my biometrics appointment!!!! Please help!!!

Recommended Posts

Okay big problem!! and it was all my fault!

the mailing address I put down on the I-751 was my P.O Box address - I got this before we moved out of our apartment april 1st.

Okay, so I also filed an online AR-11 for the mailing address to be my FRIENDS address! and I also spoke to someone on the phone to change the mailing address on the system. this was confirmed by receiving a letter of change address confirmation to botht eh P.O box as well as my friends address.

I went to check my p.o box and sure enough there was my biometrics letter!!!!!!!!!!!!! scheduled for April 14th!!!!!!!!!!!

I have now missed this and have to reschedule not over the phone but by writing to my service center with a copy of my biometrics letter.

I would like to know for anyone who has ever had to re-schedule their biometrics - how was the journey???? Yes I am aware now that it will cause a major delay in processing my case.

I still have an infopass appointment set for May 10.

I am going to mail my request to re-schedule my biometrics after work, and from now on I will know I will have to check my P.O box - the lady even said she will check my mailbox for me to see if I have any letters coming from immigration.

Do a walk in, don't bother requesting a new appointment. You would probably end up waiting months more for another one.

At the walk-in explain what happend and they should let you get your prints done.

FYI, she did walk-in successfuly :thumbs:

Please update my timeline :)

I did my biometrics today via walk-in. Original was April 14, but with the moving out of our apartment, I hadn't checked my p.o box. So I did a walk-in today April 27th 2011 here at the San Antonio Service Center. They overlooked my missed appointment date and time. they stamped my appointment letter. I was first in, first out :)
