Do I need to repeat Biometrics / Fingerprinting for H1-B if done just a year back for B1/B2?


My H1-B petition is currently under process and I will be taking a visa interview appointment soon. But, I have traveled twice to the US in the past year on visitors’ visa (B1/B2) with the last travel five months back. Also, I applied for my B1/B2 visa only a little over a year back and I did my biometrics/fingerprinting then.

So, would I have to take an appointment for fingerprinting again for the H1-B visa interview now or will they just use their old data so I’ll need to visit the city of the consulate for only one day?


Yes, U must go again for biometrics
