Requests for Fingerprints

There are occasions when persons request the police to take their fingerprints for their Overseas Visa applications, or their Criminal Record Bureau checks. It has been nationally agreed that the taking of such fingerprints will only incur charges in the following circumstances:-

Overseas Visa Requests - where a person requires a ten print set to be taken to facilitate the obtaining of a visa. £63 for the first set and £32 for any subsequent set

Criminal Records Bureau - overseas vetting - this relates to non criminal justice matters and is linked to applications by non UK persons, who are applying to work with children. This is an issue for the employer, as there is no legal requirement for such checks to be carried out. Again in these circumstances the fee charged will be £63 for the first set and £32 for any subsequent set.
