Fingerprinting Services

The Embassy can only provide fingerprinting services on a limited basis, only for requests related to U.S. immigration purposes. If you need fingerprinting services for overseas adoption or other federal immigration purposes, please email to schedule an appointment on a Tuesday or Friday afternoon at 2:00pm. Fingerprinting services cost $85 per person, payable by U.S. credit card or in cash (U.S. dollars or Nepali rupees). You must provide your full name, date of birth, and passport number, as well as your current height and weight.

If you require fingerprinting services for any other purpose while in Kathmandu, contact the Character Verification Section of the Central Investigation Bureau at Police Headquarters in Naxal. After you present copies of your passport and visa, the office will issue a letter referring you to the Central Police Science and Laboratory office for fingerprinting. The service is free of cost and can be completed in less than one day. The office will use a fingerprinting card that you provide or use their own if you do not have a required format. This fingerprinting service is accepted worldwide.
