    Code 3 Biometric

    FP notices usually have 3 types of codes. Code 1, Code 2 and Code 3. Here is what they mean -

    Code 1 - FP of ten fingers.

    Code 2 - FP of index finger, digital photo and signature.

    Code 3 - FP of ten fingers, FP of index finger, digital photo and signature.

    Code 3 is a rather recent devleopment. Once a code 3 FP is complete the physical GC can be mailed out without having the PP stamped first. During PP stamping they take a picture and FP of the index finger. This is necessary for the physical card. Now that this is done during the Code 3 FP process the GC can be mailed to the applicant without waiting for the PP stamping. Lately most people have been getting Code 3 FP notices but there are still a lot of Code 1 and Code 2 FP notices out there.

    Hope this information helps.

    regards,

    saras
