Ignore this bio letter or not?

5 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

I did a walk-in biometrics in the local office three weeks ago because I hadn't got any bio letter within 90 days processing time. I got it done, fortunately, and got my EAD card a week later. Today, I got the real bio letter asking me to appear in another local office and do biometrics for AOS&EAD the day after tomorrow. I figure I don't have to go but still feel nervous about it. That bold line on the letter IF YOU FAIL TO APPEAR AS SCHEDULED, YOUR APPLICATION WILL BE CONSIDERED ABANDONED got me.

I'm not sure what to do. Any suggestions? I appreciate it.

If you've already done your fingerprinting appointment ahead of the real appointment, don't do it another time. Just make sure to call the 1-800 number of the USCIS and inform them about it. That's the safest thing you can do. Since you already have your EAD that means your all set with your fingerprinting. But just a question, was your AOS fingerprinting already done too? coz fingerprinting for AOS and EAD are different sets. So if you haven't done your AOS fingerprinting, this notice can still be used. But either way, call the USCIS to let them know about it and ask them what to do. They would be able to help you with this. Goodluck and hope things would be fine. God Bless!

I just did a infopass and had my biometrics done for both my EAD and AOS , and i did ask that question there, If i was to get a letter stating to come for biometrics what should i do, she told to just to ignor the letter. But if i do get a letter i will phone the 1-800 number just to be on the safe side, I do not trust anything that they say there...
