I need to get my fingerprints sent to a different state, can I get Live Scan? Back to top
Unfortunately, the state governments do not allow businesses in outside states to transmit fingerprints across state borders. Live Scan is only accepted if the fingerprints are taken in the same state that is receiving the Live Scan transaction.
However, many states accept ink fingerprinting for fingerprint applicants that are not located in within the same state. Contact your requesting agency to find out how you can get your fingerprints taken if you are out of state.
For California, the DOJ website has the Form BCIA 8705 with instructions; https://oag.ca.gov/fingerprints/security.
