Missed Biometric Appointment/What should I do

4 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

Long story short. We received biometric appointment letter this afternoon in the mailbox that our biometric was scheduled this morning at 10am. The letter was dated May 21st but I guess cause it’s long weekend so the mail didn’t come until today the 28th. 

 

I also applied for N-400 earlier this month and actually also got biometric scheduled for the exactly the same time on the 28th at 10am. I successfully did walk in for that one last week as I knew I would be out of the country for work on the 28th. Both these two appointment are code 5. 

 

Question is what my best option is at this point? Should I just attend the biometric as soon as possible once I return to the states on the 30th and explain to them I only received the letter on the day of and the ASC is about 3 hrs from where I live? Anyone has experience you attend the biometric late? 

 

Or should I call USCIS ASAP and reschedule this appointment for I-751? 

 

Any info is appreciated! Thank you!

Call USCIS to reschedule your appointment and explain what really happened to them.

Thank you for the advice. Just talked to my attorney. She suggested me to try walk in as soon as I get back in 2 days. Otherwise, she would request to reschedule the apt. I was just wondering if anyone here had successfully done walk in after missed the original appointment.

Definitely walking in ASAP is your easiest first option.  It is a bit insane that:
A) You have to do biometrics for two different cases weeks apart...it has to be so easy to match the cases and biometrics together in the system.

B) That USCIS can't give a bit more notice for these biometrics appointments.  We only got 7 working days notice 5 months after filing.  You filed yours a whole year ago and got less than 1 business day.
