How does USCIS assign locations for I-131 biometrics appointments?

I am applying for a re-entry permit with Form I-131. How does USCIS assign locations for a biometrics appointment? I am a businessman and I often travel across the country. I need to prepare for the travels in advance.

Your biometrics location is assigned based upon your place of residence.

Jurisdiction will depend on your residence address in your I-131 application. It is possible to ask a different USCIS support center to accommodate you for a biometrics appointment, depending on where you will be traveling and if they have openings.

Biometrics appointments at local application support centers (ASC) are determined by the residence address on the I-131 application form. Most ASCs will accommodate appointment notices for other ASCs if time and space permits. If you show up to an ASC other than the one on your appointment notice, get there early and ask nicely. They usually will allow it.

It is based on the address in your application. The general rule is that an applicant will be sent to the biometric center that is nearest to the address in the I-131 application form.

There is quite a bit of flexibility with this. Normally, they look at the address you put in your application, but most likely they would accommodate you if you want to pick an address different than your default address.

It&#39s based on the U.S. address listed on the form. Biometrics appointments can come as soon as a month after submitting the I-131, and the appointment notice is usually only a week or so in advance. You may need to be mildly inconvenienced for a little bit in order to keep this very difficult, expensive and time-consuming process going smoothly.

This is based on your mailing address, but most offices will accept you if they are not too busy.
