  • 'Case Was Updated To Show Fingerprints Were Taken' without a biometrics appointment

    Hi there,
    We filed the form I-751 in February and USCIS received our case on February 12th.

    But when I checked my case status today, it reads 'Case Was Updated To Show Fingerprints Were Taken' along with the message below.

    As of May 7, 2020, fingerprints relating to your Form I-751, Petition to Remove Conditions on Residence, Receipt Number SRC********, have been applied to your case. If you move, go to
    www.uscis.gov/addresschange
    to give us your new mailing address.

    I never got a date for my biometrics appointment and we're not sure how to understand this status update. Did USCIS take my biometrics from a previous appointment when we first applied for the conditional Green Card? Did anyone else receive the same status message without having to schedule a biometrics appointment? Any help is appreciated.

    Thank you.

      This means that they will use the "onfile" Biometrics that they have. You don't have to go for Biometrics appt. again like normal. They are doing this due to the Pandemic. I have attached their statement from their website below. No worries, I just received the same notice yesterday.

      "
      • While biometric services (or other authorized collection sites) are temporarily suspended and/or operations are at reduced capacity, USCIS will reuse biometrics that were previously captured at the initial USCIS in-person appointment under certain circumstances and only when specific requirements are met. USCIS will reuse biometrics if:
        • USCIS is otherwise ready to adjudicate the open application, petition, or benefit request but cannot proceed solely due to the lack of current biometrics;
        • The individual previously submitted fingerprints and a photograph at an ASC (or other authorized collection site);
        • There is an exact A-file number, name, and date of birth match between the pending filing and the previous filing from which the biometrics were collected; and the individual:
          • Was scheduled for an ASC appointment that was canceled since the temporary closure of ASCs on March 18, 2020,
          • Is unable to schedule an ASC appointment (or appointment for biometrics collection at an embassy or consulate, where applicable); or
          • Filed a benefit request with an associated biometrics requirement after March 18, 2020.

      If these requirements are met, a biometrics appointment is not required. This will remain in effect during the COVID-19 pandemic and will automatically expire on Sept. 1, 2020, unless expressly extended by the USCIS deputy director for policy. "

        Awesome , this will fasten the application process I believe if the documentation is compelling.

          I had biometrics done at my visa interview at a USA Embassey in Australia in Feb for my O1 visa. Im wondering if this means i dont have to have them done again for my AOS to PR application. Anyone know? My biometrics were redone in Feb this year. That would be perfect
