Green Card Biometric Appointment

The Green Card Biometric Appointment is a necessary aspect of the Immigrant Visa Petition.  Essentially what happens at the Green Card Biometric Appointment is the complete background check of the intending immigrant.

Basically, the intending immigrant will have his or her fingerprints checked through the database of the Federal Bureau of Investigation.  The purpose behind the Green Card Biometric Appointment is to prevent applicants who have a criminal record of the kind that would make such an individual inadmissible into the United States.

After completing the background check the Federal Bureau of Investigation sends a report to the United States Citizenship and Immigration Service to confirm the intending immigrant’s identity and to identify any crimes or immigration violations that might make the intending immigrant inadmissible, deportable, or otherwise ineligible for United States immigration benefits.
