Many of our Members have reported that they have attended H4 Bio-Metrics at a different USCIS Application Support Centers including attending early or late, opposed to the original scheduled date/time and the location. They have not had any issues, and the staff was very accommodating. Locate a service center https://egov.uscis.gov/office-locator/
As reported by a Member - My actual date was June 15 and we walked-in on June 06 and fingerprints were taken.
As reported by a Member - My original appointment was in Boston and I went to fingerprints in Texas they didn’t say anything!
As long as the ASC is not overloaded with scheduled appointments, ASCs are accommodating such requests. If you have filed H1B In premium processing along with H4/H4-EAD, go to the nearest ASC as early as possible and give it a try. Again, it all depends on the ASC service center and nothing is guaranteed.
What to Bring to Your ASC Appointment
Your notice will provide specific instructions on what you should bring with you to your ASC appointment. You must also bring:
- Your ASC appointment notice (Form I-797C), and
- Valid photo identification (such as your passport, State ID or driver’s license)
- USCIS recommends that you print or save a photocopy of your completed application, petition, or request to review in the future and for your records. USCIS also recommends that you review your copy of your completed application, petition or request before you come to your ASC appointment. We cannot provide you with a copy at your appointment.
What to Expect During Your ASC Appointment
When you appear for your appointment, USCIS will capture your fingerprints, photograph and/or signature with machines designed to collect these bio-metrics. When you provide your digital signature, you will also be attesting that the information in your application, petition, or request was complete, true, and correct at the time of filing.
NOTE: USCIS will only allow you to complete your bio-metric services appointment if you can reaffirm, under penalty of perjury, that all of the information in your application, petition, or request was complete, true and correct at the time of filing.
If you are 14 years of age or older, you must provide a signature on an application, petition, or request filed with USCIS.
Children under the age of 14 are not required to provide a signature on an application, petition, or request filed with USCIS, but they may choose to sign their name during their ASC appointment if they are capable of signing. A parent or legal guardian may also sign the application, petition, or request on the child’s behalf.
