Hey, weird one here. 

 

I was sent a letter about two months ago saying my biometrics were accepted from my previous biometrics appointment. Currently when I check my online application it says my fingerprint review was completed as of Feb 27th 2019 and they are working on my I-751, petition to remove conditions on residence. 

Last Friday I received a letter with a biometrics appointment for this Thursday (tomorrow) at 1pm. Regardless I will still be going to the appointment. But I am just wondering if anyone has had this happen to them and what happened when you went to your appointment if it was mentioned or anything strange?

 

Thanks!

Is there a forum post already about this? Are you able to send me a link? 

Or if not what was your experience when you went to get fingerprints?

It's been talked about in the month threads. My wife goes to her appointment on Friday.

Takes 5 minutes that’s all .  It’s like getting photo and fingerprints done on arrival at POE.

There isn't a general thread for this, but it's been coming up a lot in individual month threads from around a year ago.  It's a super annoying practice, but at least there's movement on your cases.

It's happening because the fingerprint waivers were sent out in mass all within three days of each other. If you searched cases between like March 2018 and July 2018 in the USCIS app, you would find that almost EVERY case was marked as biometrics waived. You're looking at thousands and thousands of cases. Even those that weren't marked that way online, still got the letter in the mail. It isn't a coincidence that we all got our waivers in Feb. If you search cases now even around my case number WAC1819451XXX you'll still find plenty of cases marked as "Fingerprint review complete" with the dates mostly on Feb 27th-28th, and a couple in early March.

They are just now going through them and seeing which ones need biometrics, RFE's, interviews, or approvals. It seems like it was a big blanket to make people believe their case had been touched since the big delays started around mid-April 2018.

But yes, it's coming up more and more in the month threads for early-mid 2018.
