What exactly do they do at biometrics?

12 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

How's the biometrics appointment after your file online?

When you get there do they make you write your height/weight/eye color etc on a paper,
or they just pull info from the system?

Do they measure your height and weight or they just take a photo and do fingerprints?

Thanks

I just had my biometrics appointment. Yes I was asked to fill out a paper with those details, but they don’t actually measure and weigh you. You get your photo taken and two fingerprints taken (first and second finger of right hand).  Weirdly they then give you back the paper you have given them with your weight etc on it “for your records”. I’m assuming they do match the details you give them at that time with previous data, but I didn’t see them do it.

Same here. I went for my biometrics appointment (naturalization) last Wednesday (29th Jan) and only had two taken; the first and second finger of the right hand. I was expecting the full 10, but there you go.

For me they did the same as the green card, may be it is different based on where you come from, I am African :)

So am I ;) but I also had two fingers done (I remember being surprised). Maybe FO based or  maybe you had a newbie who didn’t realize only 2 needed? I accompanied my daughter a year later and she also only had 2 done.

I went back and look at  the form that I took home from my first biometrics  in 2004

 I googled and found that it was a FBI form  not a USCIS, and they enter the info in the system to do the FBI search....

I was just curious to know what type of form that was.

I had mine finger prints yesterday... The lady who did mine only took 2 finger prints. she said the reason for two only is they have the rest finger prints in their system from when i applied for green card. so no need for all 10 fingers

That would be for the background check

I didn’t actually ask, but that was my assumption.
