USCIS to Implement Customer Identity Verification at Field Offices

In addition to the standard biometric data requirement for applicants and petitioners requesting immigration benefits, USCIS will take another set of fingerprints and photograph that will be uploaded to the US-VISIT's (United States Visitor and Immigrant Status Indicator Technology) Secondary Inspection Tool (SIT). Note that this applies only to individuals seeking immigration benefit(s). It does not include infopass appointments, nor does it apply to guest of an applicant or petitioner.

"Under this new process, staff will take two fingerprints and a photograph of the individual and input this information into the United States Visitor and Immigrant Status Indicator Technology’s (US-VISIT’s) Secondary Inspections Tool (SIT). SIT is a Web-based application that processes, displays and retrieves biometric and biographic data. US-VISIT also links databases associated with border inspections and security. After identity verification is satisfactorily completed, individuals will proceed to their interviews or be issued their immigration documents."
