Once you have received a notification confirming that your fingerprints need to be taken, you need to book an appointment. We will not be able to process your application if you are not able to show us the paperwork and/or fingerprint form on the day.
You will need to take a rapid lateral flow test to your fingerprint appointment. We may request proof of a negative test result.
While attending your appointment, you will be required to wear a face mask throughout our buildings and during the fingerprinting process.
I need fingerprints taken for…
an overseas police clearance check
a certificate of good conduct for employment
residency or adoption procedures
proof of identity to claim overseas pensions
an ACPO Criminal Records Office (ACRO) check
Appointments which have been instructed by ACRO will not incur a charge. However, you will need to bring the supporting ACROS paperwork to verify the ‘no fee’ option.
passport renewal or validation
biometric residence permit
Commissioner of Oaths
