  • The applicant will be required to pay their fingerprint fees (online) prior to being able to use the vendor’s digital services.
  • The applicant will receive an email from SBEC that will contain a document (FAST pass) that will allow them to use the vendor’s digital services.
  • The applicant will be required to make an appointment with the vendor and present the document (FAST pass) at their fingerprint appointment.
  • Applicants will be required to pay the vendor a fee of $9.95 for the fingerprinting service.
  • The rejection rate guaranteed by the vendor is 2% as opposed to the 25% rejection rate for inked and rolled prints.
  • The average turn around time for completion of the digital fingerprint process is 3-5 days as compared to the average turnaround time of two weeks currently being experienced by the Fingerprint Division for inked and rolled fingerprints.
