Opening times

Monday to Friday, 8:30am - 12:30pm and 1:30pm - 3:30pm.


What do I need to bring?

Please bring with you:

  • A valid passport, or

  • A full photo driving licence

If your passport is being held by the Home Office, we can accept a photocopy of your passport together with an officially stamped letter. You can also request for your passport to be released from the Home Office for 24 hours.

We normally provide the fingerprint forms, however certain countries may require their own specific forms. As your requirement is for clearance in the USA, you may need to obtain these prior to your visit and provide these at the Fingerprints Office. Please note that there may be more than one form, so bring them all with you.



How much does it cost?

One set of fingerprints: £74.80
Each additional set: £37.50

Please pay with cash at the time of the appointment. We are unable to accept card payments at this moment.
