Early biometrics walkthrough

Hey everyone.

For anyone curious about early biometrics, here's some info…

*to be specific, I was at the Austin, Texas location.

-I showed up at open (8am), and checked in with security/reception.

-He noted that I had to wait in line to see the immigration officer, as only he can grant me early biometrics.

-After a short wait, I requested to the immigration officer that he grant me early biometrics. He shared that he couldn't because they were full at the moment but that I could come back at a later time (same day) when they were less busy. I chose the earliest option (10am). He stamped, re-dated, and singed my biometrics letter, and I was off to have breakfast until 10am.

-At 10am, I filled out a short form, waited 5minutes, and then spent 10minutes doing finger prints and a photo with an agent.
