As I remember it, my biometric appointment notice came a week from my NOA. Hopefully, yours will arrive within this week. So personally, I would wait it out first until Friday.

If it still doesn't come by then, maybe time for you to call uscis. http://www.uscis.gov/about-us/contact-us

My biometrics letter came in the mail about a week and half after I received NOA1 hard copies, so hang in there!

Thank you Sweetmelissa. :-) I would not be so worried about it now, knowing that yours took 1 and half week for your biometrics letter to arrive. Yup, I will definitely hang in here. :-) I really appreciate your response. :-) TY again.

30 days after your receive date, you are able to talk to USCIS about this issue and let them give you solution. I had the same situation almost 2 months ago. I waited more than 40 days. I called and they got me to talk to an officer, and when I called it was actually only 5 days before my biometric appointment date. So they faxed me my letter. I did a walk in the day I received the fax and guess what my letter came in the same night =.=

But they said they only fax letters to folks when it is 5 or less than 5 days till the appointment date.


-------F1----- Aug 2008 F1 Entry; Oct 2010 First OPT-first EAD; Oct 2011 OPT-Stem 17 months-second EAD; Mar 2013 OPT Expired. Filed K1, left US in May

Aug 12- No biometrics appointment letter. Called USCIS

Aug 13- Received response email from USCIS saying appointment scheduled on 8/19/2014; Letter was mailed on 08/02/2014. Called again to ask them to fax me the appointment letter; Aug 14- Received the fax. Successful walk in at the Durham location 3:30 pm. Received the biometric letter in the mail after I got back from the walk in. So ironic!

Sep 5- I131 approved; Sep 23- No change on I765. Called USCIS and they filed a request for me. 

Sep 24- I765 approved (after I complained)

Oct 3- Combo card received; Oct 18- Received "Notice of Potential Interview Waiver Case" letter, dated Oct 15, 2014

---2015 (6 months after received the waiver with no movement of the case, I started to call USCIS and complain)---

May 18- Made the third Service Request of I485- no response in 30 days. Case was sent to Miami according to Tier 2

June 18- Made the fourth Service Request - no response as of July 16

July 16- Talked with Tier2. Tier 2 said someone started to work on my case on the 16th, same day! At 6 pm, received notification saying Card in Production

July 17- Notification updated to welcome letter mailed; July 20- Received Welcome Letter

Aug 18- Received Greencard (after I called several times complaining about not receiving the card)

Our biometrics letter also came at about T+ 1 week.

If yours is beyond that, you need to call. You don't want to miss the appointment because you did not get the letter.

Patiently waiting here but if I will not receive it this week, we might call them coz tomorrow would be 30 days to be exact since we mailed our application. You are right, I dont want to miss the appointment just because I didn't get the letter. I appreciate your response. :-) Best luck on your journey. :-)

I got my biometric notice about 1.5 months after sending off the AOS packet.

Did you contact them after 30 days that you didn't receive the letter? Thank you for your comment. :-)
