Youtube: Error on the G-325A: Should I panic?


It is funny that a one-page form, the G-325A (Biometric Information), can cause so much stress and worry. However, even though is it one page, it asks for five or more years of information. You are required to be accurate in immigration filings, but a dreaded error can stress and worry you.

If the G-325A has a minor error, such as a wrong address, a missing city, or a flipped date of birth, you should seek to correct it, but do not panic. Usually, the G325A can be updated at an immigration interview.

For Adjustment of Status (AOS), Spousal petitions are required to have interviews, whereas children and parents may have the interview waived. For Consular interviews, every applicant (K Visa and Green Card) must have the interview. You just need to print and sign a new G-325A and present it to the Immigration Officer with an apologetic reason.

Alternatively, you can call the USCIS Helpline or you can retain a local immigration attorney for assistance in providing USCIS with an updated G325A.

Be aware that some G-325A can be submitted without a person’s signature (possible with the I-129F Petition). An updated Biometric Form can be brought to the interview and they officer may let you make the corrects or receive the updated G325A.

You do not need to panic for minor errors and it is likely that major errors would receive an RFE or NOID prior to a denial. If you have concerns, working with a local immigration attorney could be very beneficial and could provide another “screen” to catch damaging errors.
