Fingerprint Services

The Consulate’s authority to take fingerprints is strictly limited to overseas adoption purposes (into the U.S. only), or expeditious naturalization for citizens living in the Netherlands. If you need an appointment to have your fingerprints taken for this purpose, please send an e-mail to Note that Consulate is unable to provide you with fingerprint cards. You must bring these yourself, to your appointment.

Should you require fingerprint services for a criminal or work background check we recommend contacting a Dutch detective agency recognized by the Dutch Ministry of Justice. Detective agencies recognized by the ministry will have this clearly listed on their individual websites.
