Can you do walk-in bio at different ASC?

4 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

Short version: do you need to do biometrics at a particular ASC, or can you do them anywhere (assuming the one you choose takes walk-ins)?

 

(Long version: My kid is off to college. According to uscis manual, a student can choose either home address or college address for n400. With the dates involved, my kid will be able to apply earlier for n400 using home address ... but she won’t be there for biometrics if we do it that way. Also, her freshman year is going to be in a different city to the rest of her degree which could raise further complications if it’s not all finalized before academic year end. So I want to use her home address to apply, don’t mind flying her back for interview but doing it just for biometrics seems a waste)

People have shared doing so, but from what I recall, at offices within the same area/ county. 

 

What you could do is try the walk-in at the nearest ASC as soon as you get the appointment notification. If that doesn't work, then, no choice but to attend at the specified date and location.

Most of the places, they do not take walk-in, call before you will go.  I went to Philly, but they changed the rule and on appointment only.  Bye the way, doing early will not help your case, it will be determined based on your filling date and when it is due for interview at your local office

She will be eligible to file about a month after her move in date based on 5-year rule. This means her filing date will be 2 months earlier if we use home address, because she will have to wait 3 months in her new city before filing if she wants to use that one according to uscis residence requirements for filing.  That is what I meant by applying earlier.
