Hi nilsgate,

How did you do you biometric done at post office, is there any need to book an appointent through UKBA site ?
OR, just go to the specific post office with your biometric letter ?....would really appreciate if you can explain the process in details.

- Search the post office which is nearest to you. Google UKBA List of post office for biomertric enrolment.
- Call and check to the post office if the machine is working. It would be frustrating to walk into post office only to find a broken machine.
- Most of the post offices open around 9 am, but you will find a long queue even if you walk in at 9:20, so be there by 8:30-45.
- When your turn will be called out, u will be asked for the letter sent by UKBA and ushered into a booth.
- Your name and dob will be confirmed.
- You will be asked to take the digital photo and digital impression of 4 fingures of right hand, right thumb, 4 fingures of left hand, left thumb in order. No inks are involved.
- You will be asked to pay 19.20 gbp, by debit-card/cash.
- You will receive back the letter with barcode with a sticker on it and the payment receipt.

HTH, however no one told me those instructions :-).

No appointment is required for any no of dependents.

Hi Nils,

Many people are in the forum saying that in post office you can not have your biometric done for more than one applicant....is it true ?
are you also a solo applicant or do u have any dependent with your application ?

And many people in the same forum are also saying that you can do it in post office for dependents as well. :-)

- I am solo applicant.
- UKBA sends Biometric Letters one per person and not one per application, which implies they dont mind you doing it at post office.
- And recently one of my friend has done it, at post office with this wife and kid, however, he has only done it last week and yet to receive any further communication from UKBA.

HTH
