    There are not much posters from Hong Kong here.

    You may try asking your nearest police station and ask who or what sub-dept. does this who is authorized to do a professional finger printing. Let them see the card to let them know that is for the FBI, DOJ or a US 3rd party fingerprint scanning facility. It can be rejected by US facilities if not done properly and will request you to re-do it. Making you waste precious time.

    In the Phils. it is not done in police stations/departments because they can only do casual fingerprinting and the ones who are only authorized are those in the NBI (Phils. equivalence to US' FBI).

    Hope this helps.

    Thanks Lawrence01, I will do what you've suggested, and I will ask the police station see if they have the fingerprint card since I don't have one. Wish me luck!

    They do not have the fingerprintcard. Which State are you applying for?
    You have to request your respective State BON/BRN to send you one. You can request for the application packet as well or just download the application forms.

    Oh, my, now I think the whole thing will take ages. I am applying for CA, because my sister lives there. I think there's no way to get it done sooner. Never mind. Thank you for taking time to answer all my questions. Take care!

    Delivery time is on ave. 2-4 weeks upon request from CA BRN's website: www.rn.ca.gov but the entire length for the application process is 4-6 months.

    Request your fingerpring cards from the CA Board of Registered Nursing, that is what I did, then go to the nearest Police station to have your fingers printed on the card.
