In my case I sent the papers for ROC at the end of January 2015 and at beginning of March I received the ASC biometric appointment which I did yesterday. :dancing: They did my picture and fingerprints. I would say it takes approximated 1 month (more or less).

Are you removing conditions? Your profile says you filed for naturalization.

I'm renewing my green card because my current one runs out in April. Once that's sorted I was going to file for citizenship. I had thought the greencard process was going to be much faster then it looks like it will be, rooky mistake.

My concern over biometrics etc is that I have two hugely important family events back home in May and I'm trying to work out how to be there.

If you are renewing your GC, you are removing conditions... Not filing for naturalization, that comes way after this process is over. Removing of conditions (10 year GC) is not a short process AT ALL (nothing is). It may take from 6 months (the lucky ones!) till 1 year or so...That if they dont send you an RFE! :bonk:

My 2 year GC also expires in April and I sent my papers at the end of January. I don't know when you sent your papers to renew your GC but it would take 1 month from the moment you receive the first notice letter (the one that says they extend your GC for 1 year while ROC process is pending). Did you receive this letter already?

With that letter you can travel and work. But I would contact them to inform them that you would be out of the country and will need to reschedule your biometric appointment (in case they scheduled your biometric for when you are out of the country). If you are in your home country and you dont show up at your biometric (without re-scheduling) they might consider you abandon the process. As soon as you receive your biometric appointment, reschedule it if you can not go on that specific date.

Make infopass at USCIS if you have a concern. This is my humble opinion. :thumbs:

PS: When you can, change your filing status to removing conditions and create your timeline.
