What to bring with you

You'll need to bring the following with you:

  • current valid passport
  • paperwork detailing why a set of fingerprints is required
  • proof of address (utility bill, bank statement, etc.) 

Please note: if you need your fingerprints taken for the US then you'll need to download the FBIs own form from their website and bring that with you to your appointment.

And if you are renewing a South African passport you'll need to bring the form they supply from the South African embassy.
