Early/walk-in Biometrics appointment in Nashville, TN?

11 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

I FINALLY got my biometrics appointment in the mail today, and the appointment isn't for another 2+ weeks. I'm already tired of waiting so long, and was thinking about trying for an early/walk-in biometrics appointment next week. I know this varies by office whether or not they allow it, but I was just wondering if anyone had any experience doing an early appointment in the Nashville, TN office.

Thanks!

There's a topic about early walk ins experiences, by state and asc.

I can't find it as I'm using my phone right now, but if can do a search using the bar at the front page on the right.

There's an ASC in Nashville for fingerprinting and stuff, but they don't do interviews there. Memphis does the interviews.

Thanks! Looks like only one person tried and were unsuccessful. I think I'll just try anyway if I can find a ride.

If it's close to you, why not try right? It can't hurt! Good luck!

I just did an early walk-in around 1030am CT today at the Nashville office. It was a success!

That is awesome, thank you!! Did you have to wait at all or was it not very busy at all?

That is awesome, thank you!! Did you have to wait at all or was it not very busy at all?

When i went there it wasn't busy at all. There's only about less than ten people there and some of them were there for other reasons (info pass etc) other than biometrics. I turned in the appointment letter to the guard and he asked 'you know you're not scheduled for today right', and i replied yes and explained why i went early (I was scheduled for 23rd but i am traveling next week for work). I actually printed out my flight itinerary as a proof but he didn't really look at it. It took me about 20 minutes (from entering the office to getting everything done) and i didn't have to wait at all.

Nashville office is pretty small (comparing to Atlanta one), and I think USCIS don't really assign many cases to them. There's only three computers/cameras for biometrics, and i only saw one lady working on biometrics today. It is not a field office and doesn't hold interviews and stuff, so i don't think it would ever get very busy. In Nov 2013 I went to Atlanta office for my AOS biometrics walk-in and it was a much larger office and very busy (i think the computers and fingerprint reader there were also better). So i had to wait about an hour until all people with appointments get their biometrics done. But again, i dont think it will happen in Nashville office. If you don't live that far from Nashville you should definitely give it a try. I drove two and half hours from Knoxville to there :-0

That's nice to hear! Thanks for the detailed description..it makes me feel better that there's not much going on in that office :) We don't like too far..we're pretty much in the middle of Knoxville and Nashville, so about an hour and a half drive!

That's much more convenient! The office is right next to the airport and Air force national guard base and it's hard to miss.
