    Default Form FD-258 for fingerprinting

    Hello,

    I apologise in advance if this is not the right forum for this
    question but as I found most references to form fd-258 in this forum,
    I decided to post my question here.

    I live in Australia, am an Indian citizen and am applying for my
    Australian residency. I have lived in the United States for more than
    12 months previously and therefore require a police/FBI clearance from
    the United States for my residency to be approved.

    I understand that to do this, I need to apply to the FBI with my
    fingerprints taken at a local police station. At the station, I was
    informed that fingerprints for FBI have to be taken on a special form,
    apparently form FD-258.

    Now, there is no US consulate near the city that I live in and
    requests to the US consulate in other cities has not been returned for
    more than 1 week.

    Since this is a matter of urgency, I wanted to ask people in this
    group, if I could simply print the form from the FBI website and get
    my fingerprints taken on it? Or will the FBI reject that form since it
    is not on official US paper? Are there any special guidelines to make
    sure that the fingerprints are properly taken. Do I need to send
    money? If yes, how much and in what form? Do I send in a self
    addressed stamped return envelope as well?

    Thanks in advance,
    Vikram

    I don't think you can simply print the form.
    form is on a thick paper so
    its called as Fingerprint Card.
    Check out the ordering info at the end
    of the following document:

    Hope
    that helps,
