To request approval to send in a fingerprint card, the individual's background check form must be submitted, paid for, and the disclosure form completed by the applicant. An email will then need to be sent to OBP at with the applicant's name, background check number, and reason why a fingerprint card will be used.

There is a $12 fingerprint card processing fee. This fee may be paid online or by mailing a check or money order along with the fingerprint cards.
