Biometrics letter received today - couple of questions...

3 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

I received my biometrics appointment letter in the mail today and had a couple of questions...

 

Will my EAD/AP remain in processing at the NBC or will it be transferred to another center (CSC, TSC, etc.) I may be getting my information mixed up but I thought I'd read somewhere that the biometrics letter will list the service center where your cases will be processed after arriving at the NBC. Mine simply says it's being processed at the NBC.

 

Also, the appointment letter only makes reference to my I-485 and I-765 applications. I take it no biometrics are required for AP as this comes as a combo card with the EAD?

Biometrics has never been taken for AP, even before combo card.

EAD and AP are processed at NBC and when they are done at NBC, they transfer your file to your local field office. 

The center where you go for your biometrics is not necessarily the one where you will go for your interview. In my case they were 2 totally different locations. Where you go for fingerprint is a ASC: Application Support Center. Where you go for your interview is called a Field office. 

So thats probably why your fingerprint letter lists NBC because they are the one handling your case for now.
