second fingerprint notice

    Hi All;

    I need your help, idea please.

    I applied asylum in 2009 and interviewed but didn't hear the decision yet. I got mail for the second fingerprint notice last week from USCIS National Benefit Center. Is it a normal procedure? Is it a sign that my long waiting period is coming to an end? Is there anything I have to do in addition to the fingerprint?

    Thank you

    Just do the fingerprints. And try to call to the USCIS. Have you asked them? All in all we are not familiar with your case, so maybe the FBI needs to double check your fingerprints as there are some doubts about the first ones.

    Anyway - stay calm and confident. Everything is gonna be ok.

    Thank you very much nardoswiss, your words are very encouraging.

    I requested the status of my application several times but they always replied to me as the case is pending required background and security check.

    At least they are working on your case. That is the only positive at the moment. Hopefully you get approved pretty soon.

    I have pending case since 1.5 years. I have applied in 2010. I just got my second fingerprint notice after 1.5 years. I have already given fingerprint before my interview. What could it be about this second fingerprint notice? Dou you have any idea?

    Thank you.

    I got the second FP notice after 2.5 years. I also did once before the interview. They need a recent FP in their database to make the final decision (as it expired after 15 months). I got the decision a week after I did the second finger print. Then, the same thing might happen on your case. It is a good sign and your case is active at least.

    Current fingerprints as one part of the background check are NOT REQUIRED in order to DENY an application but are REQUIRED to APPROVE an application.

    Hi KTM410,

    It is a very good sign. Most probably you will be granted. I know it happened to me and recently my friend whose case is pending for more than 3 years got granted after the second finger print. He got grant letter after about 1 month from the 2nd finger print date.

    Good luck

    I think you are almost there! If they sent you a second FP thats because you are on the right path, otherwise I waste your time and theirs? Right?
