Biometrics in two days but i have a healing blister on my finger...

10 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

I have my biometrics wednesday. I had a blister on my middle finger that is like 90% healed. This ofcourse happened on the day i received my biometrics appointment letter... 😑 Great timing.

 

The skin has grown back its just very dry and the fingerprint has not returned yet where the new skin is.

 

Is this gonna be a problem for my biometrics? I think they only take a few fingers for ROC since they still have our old prints from AOS right? Im worried we have to drive all the way for nothing and be asked to reshedule.

You can explain the situation and reschedule. They may reject fingerprints if they are unreadable.

My understanding is that biometrics process is same if taken at any phases. As said, just show up as it’s too late to reschedule, they will probably reject you and schedule a new appointment.

Check the code on your appointment letter -located on the header area, upper right corner-; that defines what they will do at the ASC.

 

The codes are as follows:

Code 1 – fingerprinting only (10 prints);

Code 2 – biometrics (photo, signature and index finger);

Code 3 – fingerprints (10 prints) and biometrics (photo, signature and index finger).

Code 5 – one-hand fingerprints (4 prints on one hand), photo and signature.

 

If the code you have requires 10 prints, you can walk in prior your appointment to inquire -and if the blister is not an obstacle, get them done that very same day- or simply reschedule.

So as long as one hand is fine im ok right? Im worried i read everywhere they take 4 prints on your right hand. And my right hand is the one with the wound. Left hand is fine.

 

I thought it was a good idea to do some manicure on myself and file down some of the excess skin to make the fingerprint more visible using one of those calluses removers files my wife uses. Bad idea now its even worse... There is like no fingerprint visible at all just fresh new shiny skin. What an idiot i am. Appointment is tomorrow.

I just got them done. There was no issues with my blister thank god 😁. Wasnt even visible on the machine. My fingerprint looked good. The technician did have to try a few times but the machine accepted my prints. Hope this is the last thing i have to do for my 10 year card.
