On May 4, 2007, DOS announced a change in the fingerprint standard of the Biometric Visa Program (72 Fed.Reg. 25351). Specifically, DOS has changed from a two fingerscan to a 10 fingerscan standard in an effort to improve the agency’s ability to detect persons ineligible for visas. The 10 fingerscan system has already been deployed to certain consular posts and will be deployed to all posts by the end of 2007.
