Delayed biometrics appointment letter???

2 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

I don't know where my biometrics appointment is. My I-751 was sent on December 22, 2011 and on NOA 1, the receipt date was December 27, 2011 and until now I haven't received any appointment letter for my biometrics from my ASC which is in Wheaton, MD. I called USCIS and I was told that I have to call back one month after I got the notice, not one month after the date on the receipt. Since I was not in the US from Nov. 13- January 8, they consider January 6 as my receipt date so I have to call them back on February 6. That's crazy, huh. From what I've read on VJ, I don't think appointment letter takes this long but I may be wrong. Anybody experienced the same?

Some offices are backed up. A month wait isn't that log. We waited 2+ for biometrics. Hang tight, your local office is probably just slow.
