Fingerprinting Services

In some cases, the U.S. Embassy in Dar es Salaam can provide fingerprinting services for FBI background checks and for naturalization. Because you will have to access the main facility, do not make an appointment through the normal American Citizen Services scheduling system. Please email drsacs@state.gov to make an appointment for fingerprinting services. We will then let you know if we can collect your fingerprints and schedule you for an appointment. You will be required to provide your own fingerprint card, which is generally the FD-258. You will then have to mail the fingerprint card to the FBI or the Department of Homeland Security yourself. If you require the Embassy to mail the completed fingerprint card, you must provide the Embassy with a prepaid DHL envelope.
