I need to get an FBI fingerprint card done. Is there somewhere I can go where they can take my fingerprints?

Thanks!

The American Embassy has FBI special agents. I doubt they'd enjoy being asked to do it, though.

If you have the card, I would suggest asking the people at your local police station (station, not box).

Yup, any police station will do it for you. In fact, there might even be a requirement that it's a law enforcement agency that takes the prints and sends them directly on your behalf. It was a long time ago I had to do this, and I think I had mine taken in Singapore since I was traveling at the time I needed them

A bit of a late reply but...
I was searching for a place in Japan that does fingerprints for a non-local/foreigner for an FBI background check, and Fingerprint Room Japan was one of the first agencies that showed up (Home). They were able to do everything for me, and since I am a US citizen, I was able to receive the FBI certificate from the FBI directly in 2 days. I found this to be the least hassle out of all the other options I was given.

Thanks, I happened to have managed to have gotten it done back in 2017, but your info will be good for the next person who searches. :)

And maybe if you post here how you did it, it will also provide some help to someone wanting to do it in the future.

Exactly in the way that was outlined in every single other response besides my initial post and the necro post I replied to.
