Oh is that the same as Livescan? I didn't know how that'd work 'cuz they don't release the fingerprints to you. Also that station said they don't use Livescan for visa purposes.

That's strange. They did my fingerprints electronically, then printed them out on an official fingerprint card. The said that's how they always do it. I then sent the card onto the FBI and they accepted it without issue.

I was also told they had to be ink prints by the FBI they don't accept electronic for visa purposes. And I know just how you feel! My prints were rejected 3 times. A good thing to do if you have to go back is take multiple cards and tell them the FBI requests multiple copies on redoes. (It's not lying they do suggest sending multiple copies). Also, use two different types of paper a card stock and maybe something thinner. They will send you back one or two cards with a denial letter. And hope you get a better officer to help :/ the last time I went the officer was great he took a lot of time with me and did 4 copies for me. Finally got my check back from that set.

The police station never charged me again besides the initial fee I paid the first time. Keep your receipt and take it with you if you have to go back again.

Omg. I hope I don't get them rejected that many times. How awful. Thanks for the tips

Where did you have them done? That sounds wonderful.

Our state police station did manual prints and our FBI prints were done by a professional using an electronic system that was wonderful!! We were stressing a little about the manual ones! We had to print out our own card for those prints... didn't know that until we arrived!! So we had to return on another day!
There is a contact number you can call to see how your prints panned out. We called and had the pleasure of talking to someone informing us our report was about to be sent to us. So if your concerned... call them after you send it instead of just waiting.

Hey Pixer

I would just say make sure the fingerprints to be sent to FBI are clear and legible. We had to submit our fingerprints twice as the first set was not readable by the machine used by FBI to analyse the records. However the same set of fingerprints was accepted by the State Check (California).

If the fingerprints obtained by you are not clear try to get the same done at some other police station. For a good set of fingerprints apply some heavy duty moisturizer on your hands few times a day for 4-5 days before going for a new set. We did that and it worked for us.
