Walk-in with copy of notice after sending rescheduling request?

4 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

Hey guys,

So I know that does sound messy but if someone has been through the same situation, that would be great to know.

Ok so I am abroad, got a notice for biometrics appointment in the mail, someone sent for me the notice back for a rescheduling request, I am going back to the US 8 days after initial date of the appointment. I read online some people showed up with copy of notice and it works.

Soooo....it made me wonder.....so I thought, if I don't hear anything about my rescheduled appointment by then, should I give a try to show up 9 days after the initial date with a copy of the initial notice EVEN after having sent a request for rescheduling, or does it risk to mess it all up ?

I do know a lot of people advise to give a try and walk in even after the initial date, I chose to reschedule because being out of the country I dont want to take a chance but if soneone has been throughh this kind of situation, that would be good to hear!

You might end up messing everything up, be patient for a rescheduled appointment. Good luck.

All I can say is that when my wife went for her biometrics, the place was empty. They had about 80 chairs there and two customers. It's not like Infopass, where they are scheduled up and if you aren't on the list they probably don't actually have time for you.

There will probably be a security guard who will ask to see your appointment letter and tell you it's not your day and that you have to leave. With any luck, he'll call the supervisor, who will have an IQ over 70 and will see it won't hurt to let you into the building and take the darned readings.
