Hello everyone? Im exicited because we have submitted our I-601A and we are now waiting to be scheduled for biometrics.???

I would like to know what is the difference between Biometrics and the FOIA???

They are not requesting the FOIA,however we did get it done before we started the whole process to have an idea of what type of record the FBI and homeland security had for my husband.

To me biometrics and FOIA are the same thing. If someone can explain the difference i would greatly appreciate it??

FOIA most commonly stands for Freedom of Information Act.... I am not sure what you think that has to do with taking finger prints?

I ask because when my husband had the FOIA done they took finger print. Thats why i want to know the difference

If he went in person I guess it was to make sure he was the person requesting the information that its about. It's very private information. Biometrics is well biometrics . Taking fingerprints running data making sure he isn't on America's Bad list all that.

Never heard of anyone having fingerprints taken for a FOIA since its all an online request. So can answer why they asked him, This is a first. Might have something to do with the waiver and all that.
