Still waiting on biometrics? EAD/GC? - NASHVILLE

5 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

Hey everyone,

 

I hope someone can help give me some info and advice based on your experiences! It has been almost 2 months and I still have no received my biometrics appointment since filing for AOS and EAD on K1. My friend went through this process end of last year and said that was the quickest part of his whole process! I submitted a service request with a USCIS representative and within a few days has a response from the Nashville office to say the application was still processing and an appointment would be sent out if it was required. 

 

I am just concerned that with the delay in this it will have a knock on effect also with my EAD? I can't seem to find any definitive information that suggests I need the biometrics in order for them to issue that or whether it is JUST for my GC. Does anyone know the situation with that?

In addition, is anyone else processing through Nashville and had such a long wait as it stands? Im sure it's all fine but I can't help but worry a little!

 

Thanks in advance for your replies!

Most likely. The biometrics notice has both the I-485 and I-765 case numbers and barcodes:

If you have not check the USCIS website with your receipt number, you should because it tells you what you should do when you didn't get the letter by certain date.

Biometrics is required for the GC and EAD. The biometrics notice usually comes as one paper with two barcodes, one for GC and one for EAD. Some people receive two separate notices, each with the respective barcode so that may happen to you.

 

I filed April 16 and received the notice on May 3 (scheduled for May 17 in Nashville). There's an ongoing delay with biometrics for those who filed May and after. I'm sure yours is on its way, just taking longer than before.
