How can I use the ACS appointment system to schedule a biometrics appointment for a re-entry permit?

I am an EB-5 investor. I submitted the Form I-131 to apply for a re-entry permit. I have requested expediting because of an emergency. USCIS received my form on Jan. 16, 2019, and I got the receipt from USCIS on Jan. 23. My request for expedited adjudication is under review. Now I am waiting for a biometrics appointment. Can I request an expedited ACS (appointment system for American citizens services) appointment for biometrics collection?

Yes, you can request it if you have the receipt number from the back of the filing fee check. You might even be able to get them to link the biometrics with your filing.

You can use this system if you are a United States citizen. Were you in the U.S. when you filed the Form I-131? If not, it will eventually be denied. Otherwise, you could have visited the closest ASC, showed them your receipt and plane tickets and requested that they accommodate you by taking the biometrics prior to your leaving the U.S.

Your best bet is to make an InfoPass appointment at your local USCIS office and explain your situation. Hopefully, they will be helpful.

Biometrics appointments are usually pretty quick as is, but maybe try an InfoPass appointment at your local USCIS office.

Some of the ASCs will do the fingerprints with just the receipt notice.

You may request an InfoPass appointment at a local support center on an expedited basis. You should have received a biometrics notice by now.

Yes, you can request an expedited appointment at the ASC. Since you&#39re waiting for your biometrics and need to expedite same, you either could make an InfoPass appointment to do so or simply show up at the Application Support Center to see, with an explanation of your emergency, whether or not they will accept you on an expedited basis without a scheduled appointment.

I&#39d advise you to contact the National Customer Service Center (NCSC) at 1-800-375-5283 to follow up on your request immediately. Furthermore, be prepared to follow up with an InfoPass appointment at your local USCIS office.

No, but you should have had your biometrics apt by now. Generally they are three weeks after filing.
