- Electronic Fingerprinting and Submission - $55.00 plus applicable RCMP fees (No Sales Tax)
- Ink & Roll Fingerprinting - $45.00 (+ applicable taxes)
Electronic Fingerprinting and Submission:
Using a system accredited by the Royal Canadian Mounted Police (RCMP), your fingerprints, photograph and some basic biographical information are captured and submitted electronically to the RCMP for processing. Each session takes approximately 10-30 minutes. Although actual processing time is dependent on the RCMP, the ability to capture and submit fingerprints electronically means that Red Seal Notary’s clients can usually expect to receive their results in weeks rather than months.
Ink & Roll:
For almost all foreign police checks, and for some Canadian security screenings, a set of ink prints on a physical fingerprint card is required. In these situations, Red Seal Notary also offers Ink & Roll Fingerprinting services. For ink & roll prints, no photo is taken, and you will leave our location with your fingerprint card to submit on your own. If there is only one card, each session takes approximately 10 minutes.
