Just looking to see if anyone has done a walk in for biometrics at the Elizabeth NJ. My appontment date is too close to Chrismas and I'm planning on taking off....

If it is not so far, I think you can give it a try, it won't hurt though.

I got appointment at Fort Worth ASC office in the next 2 weeks but it would be difficult for me to go there because my husband will have to work in Austin (3 hours away from our house) and he has to take a car.

I checked on the forum, at Fort Worth Center, some got turned down some got through. So I decided to just go there, the officer at the front counter took me to talk to the supervisor (I didn't notice what is his position, but he has a separate office). He seriously asked for the reason why I want to do the biometrics early and then he agreed to let me in.

After that, it took me only 10 minutes to get all these done.

Good Luck! (F)

SUCCESS!! I read that someone else said Wednesdays are best for walk ins at the Elizabeth Location and it looks like they really are. The place was a a ghost town. Was in and out in 30 mins (9:10 - 9:40) BUT you have to have a valid reason why you want to change.

My advice:

Choose a Wednesday, make sure you have a good reason you can back up with paperwork if you have it: flight itenaries etc... The Manager was professional and quickly signed and changed my date on the spot. I went back to the gaurd who gave me a sheet to fill out - confirmed that I completed it correctly, I showed ID to the receptionist, walked into the waiting room, waited about 10 mins, took 5 mins for photo and prints and I was done!

I think it was easy for her to allow walk ins because it was really slow. She seemed to be signing/changing alot of appointments but everyone had to quickly plead their case.... Don't think she would be doing that if the place was packed...

I don't know if it will move the entire process along faster but I'm glad I don't have to worry about it around the holidays as far along as I am... :)
