485 is pending and 15 months has passed since the last FP, you will receive a new FP notice. If you efile your EAD, you will receive a FP notice to get a FP & picture, which is different from 485 FP.

I had filed for my 485 during the July 2007 time frame .
PD - July 2006.

I got my FP notice (Code 3) and got the FP notice stamped in FEB 2008
The stamp reads


Biometrics Processing Stamp
ASC Side Code: __________XTE<location>
Biometrics QA Review by ________ (officer's signature)
Tenprints QA Reivew (officer's signature)

Does this mean that I have security clearance ?
Basically, what does the stamping mean ?

Thanks in Advance !!

I thought many who had submitted in July 2007 (July fiasco) had got FP notice...but not sure....

anyways, does anyone know about what I am asking...once you get the biometrics processing stamp, does that mean that they have sumibbted for security clearance usiung the fingerprints or does it mean that the security clrearance is done ?

I thought you got second FP notice..now i got your point..that you have received FP notice with some sort of stamp after your FP was done..but I dont think they sent this type of notice to everyone/rarely..

I have a similar related question,

PD04,LC 10/06.
I am a 07 filer, got FP notice for Oct 07, got it done, got EADs and APs , renewed them twice. But what about finger printing. Do I need to get it done yearly, if so, I got no notice so far.

Please advise, thanks a lot in advance,.

Sri,
In any case,
please keep writing to barrackobama.com and under agenda. . (All, please keep this as your signature, that way we can get some more people register and write to him.. we need action.. )

They might be sending second FP notice every 15mnths of first/consecutive FP's done once it expires in their system..wait for that notice and dont worry about it now..

Thanks all for your replies...perhaps my question is not clear...I would have posted a new thread but was not easily able to figure out how to do so...

Will try to ask my question again...

I am not worried about when my FP expires and things on those lines....
my questions is for jobs that require green card or citizenship... there are some federal jobs out there that require security clearance....and for which they need either green card holders or citizen I beleive...

Now if one has an EAD (no green card yet, 485 pending for more than 1 year) and has got his/her FP done in FEB 2008 what does that mean...does it mean that once you have your FP done there is some kind of security clearance that you get from FBI ?...can you say you have active security clearance..if so what kind of security clearance is that called ?...as I said when I went for the Biometrics/FP (Code 3) they stamped the notice with the following

Biometrics Processing Stamp
ASC Side Code: __________XTE<location>
Biometrics QA Review by ________ (officer's signature)
Tenprints QA Reivew (officer's signature)


Thanks Gurus !!

My first FP was done in July 2007. I have not yet received second FP notice. Normally USCIS sends second FP notice after 15 months. Is someone else like me?

SEcurity clearence for jobs are different / separate then immigration stuff. non-imm aliens can get lowest level of security clearance.

I never received my first FP notice and I think there are a lot of people like me here.
