What happens at biometrics appointment?

8 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

OK folks,

I promised my sweetie that I would ask---What exactly happens at your biometric appointment?

I know fingerprints are the biggie; but what else?

FYI--USCIS made her appointment 1 month after I mailed the AOS package--it is Aug 16 in Atlanta. Maybe I did an adequate job with the paperwork........or maybe they are getting more efficient :jest::jest:

Most important thing is to check they have they spelling and A# correct on the final paper.

They blew it on ours and it took 3 separate appointments to correct their screw ups.

If she doesn't like the first pic they take. Have her ask for a 2nd or third.

It will be on her GC.

You paid $70 for about 15 minutes.

May as well get what you want for a "change" from the "Man".
