Fingerprinting and Criminal Background Checks

More general information on criminal background checks and fingerprinting is available here:

The Embassy/Consulates do not offer fingerprinting services.

The following companies offer fingerprinting services for medical licenses, visas, immigration, police clearance certificate, criminal background checks, and/or criminal history records clearance.  A printable PDF version of this card is available here. The U.S. government does not endorse or certify the quality of these companies or services, but includes this information as a courtesy to U.S. citizens.

Because this is not a U.S. Embassy/Consulate service, we cannot provide pricing information.  We suggest that you ask about the price before you do the fingerprinting.
