When will I be scheduled for a biometrics appointment?

Downtown San Diego from Coronado

After the USCIS receives the application, the USCIS will provide a biometrics appointment notice with the location of the nearest USCIS authorized Application Support Center (ACS). There is no specific timeframe for scheduling of the biometrics appointments, although most are scheduled within 60-120 days of filing. Note that the results of the fingerprints are only good for 15 months, so if an application is pending longer than 15 months (likely for quota backlogged cases), an individual may need to be re-printed. For this reason, USCIS sometimes elects to delay biometrics processing to avoid multiple visits to the Application Support Center.
