Did my ten-print for AOS but one fingerprint is not acceptable...should I worry about it?

10 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

Today I went for my biometrics appointment and got my ten printed. The USCIS staff doing my fingerprints couldn’t make one of my fingerprints acceptable to the system so at the end he bypassed and told me it was okay. When I came back and search for information about fingerprints failure then it starts making me worry about the situation. Will the FBI reject my fingerprints and ask for another FP?

I have this happen to me all the time due to poor circulation in my fingers, usually takes a few times to get them all done. They may still be able to complete it without one of them. There have been instances of needing to redo fingerprints but it isn’t a terrible thing (annoying and inconvenient though). They will simply send a new fingerprint appointment.

This happened to me as I have many lines on my fingers, lines from washing too much the woman doing my fingerprint said. My first biometrics the woman didn’t say anything so I thought of good. A couple of weeks after I got another appointment for biometrics, apparently the FBI can’t process my fingerprint card. So I went to my second biometrics appointment and the woman that was doing my fingerprint old me that she will try to make it work but if it still doesn’t work she said I might get a letter to do police clearance. I didn’t have to do that as after a week my case updated to ready to schedule for interview.

As stated, you get two bites of the cherry when it comes to biometrics and fingerprints. After two failed attempts they will simply RFE you for police certificates instead.

One more thing is I saw my ten prints were initially recorded successfully but the staff seemed wasn’t  satisfied with two of them and redid them. Then the last finger was not accepted any longer. After trying many times he gave up and made up an excuse that my finger tip was worn out. 

 

I asked why it showed okay for all the fingers previously then he said those two he redid once were fuzzy. But that time the system didn’t complain and they were in all green and passed. Anyway fingers crossed for everything goes well.

Is the police certificate the one from the US or from all the countries I’ve stayed in for longer than a certain period?

These are from all jurisdictions in the US that you have lived in for a certain period.

Hi there, just an update that after 2days of the fingerprint the case status changed to “case is ready to be scheduled an interview”. So I guess that means I passed the background check right? 

 

That is a relief. Thank you all for those who helped on the question.
