INTERnational Fingerprint

THE way to get an FBI fingerprint check done while outside the US.

  • Need to submit an FBI fingerprint background check result for a United States purpose such as professional licensing, getting a US job offer, or to sit for an exam?
  • Are you or your candidates an executive or major stockholder of a US firm operating in states that require fingerprinting of "control-persons?"
  • Want to establish residency in a foreign country? 
  • Need to submit an FBI fingerprint result to a US county court for a domestic purpose such as name-change, adoption, custody, or guardianship of a child?
  • Want to see what arrest information the FBI will submit to a prospective employer if they make a fingerprint-based USA-FBI request?
  • Are the US embassies and consulates explaining that they only take your prints for employment by the US Government itself?

How it works: Simplified Authentication

Upon receipt of your online order National Fingerprint ships* your candidate(s) patented Self-Capture® Packs, with which they produce exemplary fingerprint specimens in the privacy of their homes using downloaded video instructions with printed narratives available in most languages. When the specimens are ready the candidate briefly appears before a convenient independent English-speaking witness who registers in advance at www.TrustedObserver.comThe witness authenticates ID credentials and the prints, applies our tamper-evident seal, and presents the shipment for prepaid FedEx pickup. A PermaPrints membership is required so that additional or renewal licensing can occur without repeating the overseas process. It's the ultimate in international convenience and speed.

*Service available anywhere FedEx International goes. Payments are made online with any card that credits $ (USD), or a US-based sponsor can make the payment. Contact us to set up an email dialog, make arrangements, and confirm pricing.

What Our Clients are Saying

The NFp team met my deadline for fingerprinting my overseas executive team by setting up backup plans for everything. When one of my London-based applicants got airborne for Toronto NFp had its agent there to meet the flight. When the Florida Department of Law Enforcement’s servers inexplicably delayed their FBI transmission NFp detected and fixed it. When the FBI computers balked at some fuzzy prints NFp used its backup prints and fixed it. When the Florida Office of Financial Regulation misplaced several of my staff’s FBI reports NFp used its backchannel contacts to help them find them, and fixed it…on a Sunday. The NFp team is obviously experienced at working with government agencies. Instead of offering excuses, they remediate. Just what I expect from an outfit run by former military. These guys are relentless and reliable.
