N-400 Biometrics appointment letter

3 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

Do you know how long does it take to get the bio metrics appointment letter after you file for online N-400 application? And any idea after how long they schedule you for the actual bio-metrics appointment after you get the letter? I want to figure out the time frame before I submit only N-400 application because I am planning to go back home for 3 weeks .  much appreciated

Biometrics is within 3-5 weeks but typically before 4 weeks. I had my biometrics appt 21 days after application. Online letter comes in quickly but usps mail was a bit slower. I think I got my mailed in letter a week before the appt. As long as you have the online copy, you should be fine. You can just print it out and bring it to the appt.


If possible, my suggestion would be to go on vacation 3 weeks before you plan to submit the N-400. You can finish all parts of your application except for the travel history of the last overseas trip. Submit your application as soon as you come back.
