Fingerprints Brussels for Americans and Citizens of Other Countries

Fingerprints Brussels provides fingerprinting services for Americans, and citizens of other countries, who require fingerprints for background checks, immigration, employment, and so on. Fingerprints are required for FBI criminal record checks (rap sheets) and for Letters of Good Conduct from a particular state.

Save yourself the hassle of contacting police departments or the American Embassy. They DO NOT provide fingerprint services. Fingerprints Brussels may also be the most convenient location if you are searching for fingerprints in France, fingerprints in Holland, fingerprints in Luxembourg or fingerprints in Belgium.

Fingerprints Brussels is listed as a service on the U.S. Embassy in Belgium website in Brussels (choose FBI Criminal History Record).


What We Do

Your fingerprints will be inked and placed on a standard fingerprint form (FD-1164) commonly used for applicant or law enforcement purposes. We will provide the FD-1164 standard fingerprint form.

Please bring your passport with you. Please also have with you your American social security number (if you have one).
We will make rolled impressions of all 10 fingers.

We will make 2 inked fingerprint cards.

In the event that your submission is not accepted we will redo the fingerprints free of charge.

Our service is friendly, and we aim to make it as convenient as possible.

Your Fingerprint Cards can be used for the following:

1. Employment
Many corporations and agencies require both employees and volunteers to be fingerprinted.

2. Foreign Travel, Passports, Work Permit and Visas
Anyone who wishes to visit or work in another country may be asked to provide a criminal record check.

3. Citizenship, Permanent Resident & Immigration Applications

We look forward to meeting you and providing this fast and friendly service. If you have any further questions after reading the above, please don’t hesitate to contact us.


"This fingerprint service was a godsend considering the limited options for fingerprint services for Americans in Europe. I was able to schedule and complete the fingerprinting in a timely fashion in Brussels. My only other option was traveling to Paris, and amid COVID-19 border closures that was not possible. Shannon was warm and friendly, prompt and genuine. It was a painless process with a guarantee of service if the fingerprints were not accepted. Highly recommend choosing her over other options! 5 out of 5 stars.
