FAQS

What Is A Live Scan?
Simply put, live scan fingerprinting is an electronic means of capturing fingerprints digitally without the use of traditional ink and paper.

How Much Does A Live Scan Cost?
Unfortunately, there is no one price fits all for our live scan services. In order to get the exact cost for your live scan we will need to be provided with the ORI number listed on the “Request for Live Scan Service” form, as well as the level of service. You can always call us for an exact quote.

Government fees are as follows:

DOJ – $32
FBI – $17

* Additional fees may also be required (e.g., license or certification fees)
* Government fees may vary depending on the type of application.
*The fees shown above do NOT include our rolling fee and is not a representation of the total cost.



How Long Does It Take for My Fingerprints to be Processed?

It typically takes about 72 hours for your fingerprints to be electronically processed at the government level. However, there are some instances where it may take longer.

Will I Receive My Results in the Mail?

In most cases you will not receive your background results in the mail. Your background check will be processed through the requesting agency shown on the form. The main exceptions are live scans done for Record Review & Visa/Immigration at the Department of Justice level. For these live scans, the results are typically delivered by mail in 1 to 3 weeks, but they may take longer.
We also offer same day FBI results for personal use.
