Fingerprint appointment

7 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

Depends where you're getting the apt. I got one at the syracuse office in Feb and my wife and I both were in there about 30 minutes. Arrived just a few min early. Wasn't crowded, and didn't wait long. My GC prints in a different state, years earlier, also took no time, also at a small support center.

I am sure others have had to wait hours to get prints. Unless you find experience from those who went where you're going you can't draw too many conclusions.


Good luck!

Is this a biometrics appointment? If it is, usually you can go anytime before the appointment and be seen as long as you take the appointment letter with you and explain the situation. You can do that at the Seattle field office, not sure if it can be done at other offices.

Yes you can try walk-in tomorrow with your doctor appointment to show reason. Good luck.

hi everybody!

I have a fingerprint appointment next week and I also have a surgery planned that day. Is anybody knows how long is the fingerprint appointment ? If it's 2 hours or 15mn? I'm in NY....

Thanks for your answers :-)

My biometrics fingerprint appointment lasted 25 mins. It was very quick, but then again it wasn't in NY. Are you in NYC? if so I suggest you go to the office earlier and get it done, NYC offices are always more crowded than the rest of the country.

Bonne chance

We drove over two hours (each way) for my appointment in St Louis! We arrived early and there were about six people before me. It lasted around 20 minutes and only took that long because they couldn't get a print from one of my fingers! I was nervous over nothing. Everyone was very pleasant. Good Luck!

Your mileage may vary, especially with larger cities. When I had my second biometrics (ROC) Boston's building was heaving with people and took nearly two hours. They didn't accept early walk-ins (although possibly with exceptions) nor visitors.


There's that smell again...
