Questions about Bio metric appointment

Here is my concern. I just got receipt of I-751 a week ago on Nov. 24. I see that they send biometric appointment sometime within a month. I will be out of state for Christmas for approx. 2 weeks and am so worried that letter would arrive while I am gone and I will miss the appointment. Is there a way to call USCIS while I am gone to see if they mailed something to me? I dont have any tracking # to track my case.

Has anyone ever had this issue?

In my case, I never received the appointment notice because they ended up using my old biometrics! Apparently, this is fairly common... though they won't tell you unless you bug them endlessly over the phone.

Since it hasn't been that long yet, you could still receive a notice. If you're afraid of missing it, you could try to walk in to an ASC and get yours done early (I believe this is still an available option?).

The week before you leave and while you're gone, you should definitely try calling USCIS. select "don't have a receipt number" option and ask to speak to a tier 2 officer if the first person you speak to can't give you any information. If an appointment notice has been mailed out to you, the tier-2 person, at the very least, should have that information.

My guess, though, is that they won't schedule any appointments around the holidays and you should be fine, but i could be wrong....

USCIS is so unreliable!!! I called them to about 3 weeks ago to find out where my Bio appointment letter was and was told by the IO that there was no appointment scheduled as of yet. Well later that same day when the mail came, my letter was in the mail. I just had my appointment today. I would definitely try to go to the ASC to see if you can get an early bio done. I got mine done in Buffalo today and asked if I could have done an early bio and they told me yes I could have as long as the office wasn't busy.
