WHERE TO GET FINGERPRINTED OUT OF STATE

The availability of business or state agencies that fingerprint applicants varies from state to state. Typically this is done at your local law enforcement agency or a third party service.

It is suggested to you have two (2) fingerprint cards printed, and submit only one (1) to Gemalto Cogent. You may have your first card rejected and be required to submit your second card at a later date.
