Biometrics appointment and Costa Rica trip I751

Filed: K-1 Visa Country: Sweden

Hi everyone!

I am getting ready to file the I751 form with the corresponding package to remove conditions on my 2 year green card. My 90 day window started yesterday and I was planning on sending everything in on Saturday. My only concern is that my wife and I have a trip to Costa Rica planned in November for 10 days and I am worried that I will be scheduled for a biometrics appointment while I am away that I won't be able to reschedule (is this even possible?) since I will be out of the country.

Is this something to be concerned about? Would it be better to wait to file the the removal of conditions until the day I leave for our trip? In that case I would have plenty of time to come back before there is any chance of getting a biometrics appointment.

Any advise by anyone who is familiar with this process would be greatly appreciated!

Usually biometrics are scheduled a month after you file. So I would wait and file just a few days before the trip.. lets say Nov 1st or so, to be safe rather then sorry.
