Missed my biometrics appointment and I am not in the States right now

3 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

Hello, could you, please, help me - I missed my biometrics appointment in the States. I am currently outside of the USA because of a family reason and need to stay here for a while. 

 

I am waiting for removing my condition on my green card. I missed the appointment because I got the mail too late. 

 

What should I do now? Is it possible to reschedule it outside of the States? And how do I do it? 

 

Thank you,

You are at a risk of having your ROC denied. You can see if you need to reschedule otherwise you will have to start over from scratch, fees and everything. If you will be outside of the US for a while then some decision will need to be made. A bio appointment can be made very quickly. I remember my wife got her appointment notice only one week before the appointment date.

 

This sucks but this is the risk of being out of the country when going through an immigration process. See if you can reschedule the biometric. If you can, that is a good thing, but then you still need to be available for the interview, which could be any time after the biometric.

 

Good luck
