Fingerprint Cards

Please note: The Department of State assumes no responsibility or liability for the professional ability or reputation of, or the quality of services provided by, the entities or individuals whose names appear on the following lists. Inclusion on this list is in no way an endorsement by the Department or the U.S. government. Names are listed alphabetically, and the order in which they appear has no other significance. The information on the list is provided directly by the local service providers; the Department is not in a position to vouch for such information.

The U.S. Embassy is able to provide fingerprint cards (Form SF-87) at no charge. No appointment is necessary to pick up the cards from the U.S. Embassy security entrance on the Visa/American Citizen Services side during normal business hours.  Alternately, you may download and print FBI fingerprint form FD-258 (https://www.fbi.gov/file-repository/standard-fingerprint-form-fd-258-1.pdf/view).

The U.S. Embassy cannot perform the fingerprinting process.  Take the fingerprint card to the Thai Police Clearance Service center for inking.
