Anecdotal I know, but I'd be interested to hear if anyone on an L2 was called.
I was called for biometrics as an L2 applying for an EAD.

You know a lot of spouses of L1 visa holders!

I don't know anyone who came in on an L1 who needed biometrics - but everyone on an L2 who needed an EAD did have to go in.

As a side note - when we went from visas to Green cars we both had to go in for biometrics.

There's a very large Brit Facebook group I belong to that has regular get togethers, the vast majority are on L visas. Lots of online discussions on applying, receiving then job hunting!

Yes, the few people I've met who have moved from L to EB status all had biometrics, but no one I had come across as an L2 applying for an EAD had been called. Maybe everyone I know was just lucky. Hopefully the OP won't get called if they are waiting it out in the UK.

Maybe it differs by state.

Problem will be is if OP is waiting it out in the UK they won't know if they have been called or not - they will need to ensure someone is checking their mail!

Thankfully my wife will be out there for the duration, so she can be watching out for letters. And I guess I'll fly back if i need to.

Just to add some more anecdotal evidence I received confirmation today the EAD card had been posted and I was never called for biometrics. So looks like the gamble paid off.
