Recommended Posts

well i went for my biometrics today at i got there at 12 .. appointment at 1 and there was a huge line around the block ... after everyone lining up like sheep i got in a 1pm which was my appointment the people were so rude there and i got sent to the backof the line once because i forgot to add my 2nd reciept number in which THEY forgot to tell me i was soooo frustrated then i recieved my ticket number 736 and the number thing said 598 when i got there the waiting began....... after 2 hours i was called up with about 20 people and my finger prints were taken

now can someone explain something to me why did i put my EAD reciept number down and my biometrics? i thought they were seperate ? what happens after this ... no one would help me they were too busy obviously

so what happens after my biometrics ? Im so confused ? Do i have to go back in for my employment card and also is there any way of finding out the status of my advanced parole ?

It sounds like a rough ordeal.

AP and EAD are processed separately.

You should receive your EAD card in the mail in a couple of weeks.

Did they do your AOS prints too? (full 10 fingers)

By the way, I went to the Bronx office, and it was just as bad. The joys of immigration in NYC :wacko:

I did my AOS biometrics in Queens and EAD biometrics in Brooklyn (after InfoPass the day before at NYC district office). Both required a wait, but nothing like what you have experienced.

You won't have to go back for the card, it should be sent out to you soon. As for AP, I think they are processing APs in around the 60 day time frame. No biometrics required for AP.

Good luck with the rest of your journey.

Use the 10 digit MSC number to check your case. What is this receipt no. you are talking about for??? EAD or AOS???

The set of 10 prints is for AOS. EAD just requires 1 index finger print. However, some ASCs do both at the same time. Unlikely at Brooklyn though.

Our biometrics appointment letter says on it that it's for both the EAD and AOS. It has both case numbers on it. Has anybody dealt with the Charleston office? Are they as bad as New York? I hope not. I have a final exam that night so need to get in and out fast.

I have the feeling NY is a unique case; Charleston is unlikely to have the sheer numbers that it does, right?

True, at least I hope. But we waited a lot longer than others in other states for an appointment. There are tons of Mexicans in our area because it is a heavy construction and agricultural area, so there is plenty of work here for those willing to work hard. We're also on the coast, so we have ports all over which bring in immigrants too.

I'm just happy I don't have to go to Atlanta!

The OP does not have a timeline so it's not possible to predict how soon they will get the EAD. Depending on how long it's been since filing it can be 2 weeks to 2 months.

And why there's only one receipt number? Each application (AOS, EAD, AP) has a unique receipt number -- that's what allows one to check status.


09-02-2005 Applications for AOS, EAD, and AP received by MSC

10-21-2005 AOS fingerprint notice for 12-08-2005

11-07-2005 AP approved

12-05-2005 Infopass appt at San Jose office for interim EAD -- Refused, because it is already approved by MSC on 11-07-2005

12-07-2005 Attempt at interim EAD at San Francisco office -- no go. Back to San Jose, where CSO (chief station officer) tells they will contact MSC via email to request permission to issue interim EAD

12-08-2005 Biometrics for AOS and EAD. Having no EAD appt letter was no problem (used EAD NOA)

12-15-2005 EAD arrived in the mail

12-24-2005 Received interview letter; interview scheduled 03-01-2006

01-28-2006 Received replacement SSN card in married name (5 wks since application)

03-01-2006 AOS interview -- approved; received stamp in the passport

03-13-2006 Green card arrived in the mail

I had my Biometrics at Brooklyn ASC back in July '05. Lots of fun. I was there before the doors opened on a Saturday morning and the line was out the door and around the corner. It was really strange cause at that time in the morning on a saturday there was hardly anyone on the streets and then suddenly as I came around the corner there was this huge line of people! I had both my AOS and EAD biometrics done at the same time.
