Hi everyone,

My husband got his bio-metrics taken in October. We just got another letter in the mail saying he has a bio-metrics appointment April 13. Why?? I didn't think we had to go TWICE.

Any thoughts?

Probably the one appointment that you got in october was for EAD application and the one that you got now is for AOS application. Sometimes people get 1 appointment for both, and sometimes it's 2 appointments separatedly. Dependa on what's available at your ASC I guess, how busy they are, etc'.
