These include, but are not limited to, the United States, Mexico, India, Nigeria, and the UAE. Certain countries, such as Japan, South Africa, and Australia, have particular requirements for their ink and roll fingerprinting.

For overseas, we use the traditional ink and roll fingerprinting method. Most governments will provide you with the required forms for ink and roll fingerprinting. We request you bring those forms in with you when you come to Heritage College to get your fingerprinting done, as most of these forms provide fingerprinting agencies like Heritage College with specific directions we need to follow for your fingerprints to be recognized.

Your first set of fingerprints takes around 20 minutes. Add approximately 10 minutes for each extra set.
