Early Biometrics - St Paul, Minnesota (Not allowed but...)

6 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

Just to let everyone know we did a early biometric appointment in St Paul, Minnesota today. Our appointment was for May 31st. The guy said usually they would not allow it but due to the fact that only one person was waiting he said he will allow it :) We got to the place at 3pm and were out by 3.30.

I filled in a form and then the lady took my finger prints, took my photo and then made me do a electronic signature and was told i was good to go.

Same with me!! It took more than a month for me to get my NOA1, so when I got the appointment for the biometrics for May 25th I got extremely frustrated to be waited more and more, and tried an early walk in in St Paul, Minnesota. The guy couldn't believe I drove all the way (an hour and a half trip) without no guarantee of success, especially with the prices of gas and stuff, and so he let me in! I only had to wait 5 min and it was all very fast and easy. The people were all very polite. I am very glad I tried!
