Question: What biometric date do I need to give at my SENTRI interview? Will they take fingerprints?
Answer: You will have a photograph of your face taken and your fingerprints will be scanned using highly sensitive, non-invasive, ink-less equipment. Biometric data is embedded onto your SENTRI card and is used to verify your identity when you arrive at the SENTRI lane. Fingerprint technology matches your fingerprints to those that were provided to the enrollment center when you enrolled in the SENTRI program. If your fingerprints cannot be detected, the Customs and Border Protection officer will refer your case to a supervisor for a decision.
