I sent my case on the 25th and received my Bio for the 29th but I decided to go today and they were happy to assist me. So I got them done 11 days before my actual appointment. How long should I have to wait to hear an answer? I mean everything is going pretty fast, I thought it would take longer for bio

So you sent your application on the 25th of September and got your appointment for October 29th?

You should post your timeline.

It took about a month for ppl who filed first, on the Aug. 15. There are only about 5000 people approved of the DACA. The proceeding time for the case is a little different even for the people who've gotten the biometrics on the same date depending on the USCIS center your case gets reviewed under and the official in charge of your case. I know you're excited for the fast processing time so far as to receiving the initial i797s BUT your case gets started reviewed after your biometrics. I can tell you that you won't get your EAD in a week like how you've recieved your biometrics appointment letter. Let's wait a little bit more patiently.

Sinae is right, it takes a while to get approved or hear anything about your case after you do your bio, regardless you did a walk in or adhered to the appoinment day.

I sent my application on September 25th and received my receipt notice in less than a week, and a week after I received my Biometric appointment, which was schedule for October 29th but I decided to go today. Btw I live in austin, Texas. I hope I can get an answer as soon as possible, A good answer that is. Lol
But those it make a difference that I went in earlier?

I'm not understanding what you're saying. Your I-821D has been approved but not your I-765? If so, give it a day or two.

Yes. Your case review really starts when the biometrics result come out.

Getting your biometrics earlier just means your case gets started reviewed earlier, but that doesn't mean you will get notified earlier. Every application gets reviewed case by case basis. The timed consumed to make final decision depends on the center your case gets reviewed under, the official in charge of your case, and most of all, your case.

You are misunderstanding something big. No one got approved before the biometrics.

It's because some people put on their DACA approval but I guess what they meant is Deferred action receipt ... So my concern is that they accepted my DACA but not yet my work permit and I heard others get both approved at the same time ... They approved me last Monday so it's been a week already ...
Another question is .. Like how long was ur letter for the work permit ... What things did u put ( I know something's are personal) but I mean just in general !!???? >.<

I'm not understanding what you're saying. Your I-821D has been approved but not your I-765? If so, give it a day or two.


Yes! And I didn't think it was anything wrong with it , but I started asking others And they got both approved at the same time .and i checked my case for my work permit on Uscis and it hasn't move from initial review :(

And how long was ur letter for the work permit? What things did u include ?
I feel like maybe mine was too simple :/

Yeah, most people get both forms approved within one or two days of each other, but, USCIS has up to 90 days to give you a response on your I-765 form so maybe they are still looking over it.

On the Additional Information part I just stated what some of my expenses where and who was paying for them.

Like Jose said allow up to 90 days for your i765 acceptance notification and there's no need to be worried. Once your i821D review gets finished, your i765 process starts. Although acceptance on the i821D doesn't guarnatee the acceptance on the i765. But my guess is most people applying for the i821D will be accepted on the i765, too, to be able to work because that's the initial intention of the government (let us work, collect tax, and boost up the economy).

That's a good thing if you feel like your i765ws was too simple because that's perfect. You don't need to exaggerate anything or state explanation. 'I would like to be able to work to support myself." is perfect. For me, numbers I put on the i765ws are much different than most of the people because I tried to run my own business, but the part.3 was just a simple sentence.
