View Full Version : First time fingerprinting

08-17-2010, 02:24 AM
My I-485 was received by USCIS on August 3rd and since August 6th the USCIS website shows an initial review status. I am planning on travelling outside the country on August 30th and would be on vacations till September 16th. I am planning on traveling on my H1 Visa. Now i am fearful that during the time i am on vacations, the fingerprint request would come.

My question is, looking at the current trends, how much time it usually takes for a fingerprinting request after you apply for your I-485?? Any ideas??

3 to 4 weeks to get the FP notice. Can you please update your IV profile first?

Myself and spouse got biometrics notice and we went to the ASC center ahead of the appt date and were were accepted to get the FP etc.

My question is that the biometrics Notice's Envelope has " RETURN SERVICE REQUESTED " letters. Do I need to send them anything ? I talked to USCIS customer rep who mentioned that I need not do anything.
