Hi! (F)

Well my husband and I are off to Seattle for Biometrics on Thursday. I was wondering if anyone had good directions to get there and some tricks/tips for getting to and dealing with the Seattle office? Trying to make the drive and the visit as painless as possible ;)

Thanks everyone

Jamie :star:

I can't help you as they did something good for me and put my south Washington butt in an office in Portland. ;)

I did want to wish y'all good luck for them though! They were a breeze for me!

Hi there! I cannot give you driving tips, since I took the bus :D , but the building is located very accessibly, on the eastern (I believe?) side of Tukwila Intl. Boulevard. There is a parking lot, and it may be a pay lot, which is unfortunate because it doesn't look like there is alternate parking nearby.

If your appointment goes anything like mine, be prepared to wait for a couple hours or so. I got there a couple hours before my appointment time, and had no problems getting in. Everyone is generally nice and civil, and the capturing of the fingerprints and photo are straightforward. Make sure you don't have cuts on your fingers. Also, if you have any facial piercings, make sure that you remove them before they take your picture.

If you applied for EAD as well, and if you have "code 3" on your NOAs, bring both NOAs and you will be able to have biometrics done for both at the same time.

Good luck!

We went there for an Infopass appt there. There is a pay lot but we can't remember how much they charge. This is the only place to park, as the road is a bigger one

Here's the address in case you didn't have it (I'm sure you do):

12500 Tukwila International Boulevard

Seattle, WA 98168

I was able to map it on www.mapquest.com and it's accurate from my experience.

The security area is like going through security at an airport. Make sure you don't take in too much extra stuff because you have to take all change out of pockets, etc. But it was pretty easy. Once you get through there, you go down a hall to the waiting area and that's about it.

Good luck!

I was there last week for my interview. If you're driving there from Seattle you can take the viaduct south, and then take the marginal way exit to head onto highway 99 south. The exit can be confusing as there are lots of merges and exits to go through to get onto the right road. From there the international boulevard exit is just a couple of miles on. I'd recommend doing a practise run first.

The bus is very easy - the 174 stops right outside.

Parking lot is a flat fee of $5 no matter how long you stay there.

Hope this helps.

Thanks for the info but unfortunatly we are driving about 2.5 hours from Bellingham (near the canadian border) so no practice run for us. We are just going to give ourselves a lot of time to get lost :P

So how did your interview go? What kind of timeline do you have?
