The biometrics appointment may take a while to manage, but once at the USCIS office it is a very quick process. Make sure everything goes smoothly by knowing what to bring and where to go.
What to Bring to Your Biometrics Appointment
Every biometrics appointment requires photo identification, such as:
- Passport or national photo identification issued by your country
- Driver’s license
- Military photo identification
- State-issued photo identification card
Your appointment letter may also state the need for additional supporting documentation, which may include but is not limited to:
- Legal name change decree
- Marriage certificate
- Birth certificate
Keep in mind that personal documents in a language other than English must have certified translations. It is important that all requested documents are brought to your biometrics appointment. If your appointment is soon and you do not have translations of your personal documents, rush translation is available.
Where to Go for Your Biometrics Appointment
The USCIS biometrics appointment notice will have the date and time of your appointment as well as the address of the appointed USCIS office. Pay particular attention if you live in a larger city with multiple USCIS offices. Your appointment may not be with the office closest to your home, but rather with the office which can offer you the earliest appointment.
