  • Fingerprints


USCIS requires applicants and petitioners for certain immigration benefits to be fingerprinted for the purpose of conducting FBI criminal background checks. To better ensure both the quality and integrity of the process, USCIS processes fingerprint cards for immigration benefits only if an authorized fingerprint site prepares them. Authorized fingerprint sites include USCIS offices, Application Support Centers (ASCs), and U.S. consular offices and military installations abroad. In general, USCIS schedules people to be fingerprinted at an authorized fingerprint site after an application or petition is filed. USCIS charges a set fee per person (for most applicants) at the time of filing for this fingerprinting service. Please check the instructions on your Immigration application or petition form to find out if you must be fingerprinted.

  • If you are 14 or older but under 75 years of age, USCIS will send you a notice for an appointment to give fingerprints take photographs, which is called biometrics, at an Application Support Center, also known as the ASC.
  • You must bring a state-issued photo ID, or a passport issued by your country of birth to the appointment.
  • If you cannot make the appointment, follow the instructions on the appointment notice to ask for a new date and time.
