Rescheduling Biometrics Appointment

2 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

Hi all,


We are traveling for next 3 months with pending i-751. My wife has already received NOA so her status is safe for another year. 

But the problem is that we haven't received the biometrics appointment letter yet. We are leaving in 5 days..

We already filed AR-11 so that my brother can receive the letter while we are gone. 

Are we allowed to go to a different ASC to get the biometrics done? We will be in Asia for next 3 months so a trip to Guam or Hawaii would be much more convenient than traveling back to NC. 

Another option would be rescheduling Biometrics appointment - but since we cannot set the date up ourselves, we might have to do it multiple times (not sure what the interval would be for the rescheduled appointment, but presumably 2~3 weeks?) Would 3~4 times rescheduling be ok?

Lastly, I know this is a risky move but I read that denial of i-751 based on abandonment of case happens if an applicant fails to show for biometrics up to 90 days after the appointment. If this is true, can we simply ignore the appointment date and come back 60~70 days later and get the fingerprints done?  


We've already delayed our trip once (costs us hundreds of $$- rental car, extended rental etc) and cannot afford to do it anymore. 


Thank you all in advance for your help. We are desperately looking for help!

Our timeline for ROC application is 


04/10/17 - i-751 Submitted

04/11/17 - Application received

05/03/17 - Check cashed

05/04/17 - NOA received


We were hoping biometrics letter to arrive today or tomorrow (2 weeks after NOA receipt date) but it seems highly unlikely....
