Ten-printing question on DS160 - does the embassy have records?

1 post in this topic

Recommended Posts


I sent in a couriered application for a J1 renewal (interview not necessary according the online appointment form). I've realized I answered the ten-printing question wrong, I couldn't remember so thought it safer to answer no but have read since that anyone interviewed since 2006 will have been ten-printed (I was interviewed for my original J1 in 2012).

So, my question is, will they realize I have been ten-printed when looking at my application as a previous record of my fingerprints will be linked to the application? Or are they likely to ask me to come in to have my fingerprints taken even though I had them done before just because I couldn't remember? Surely this happens relatively often...

Thanks for any answers,
