  • The Embassy does not provide background check services.  Please do not schedule an appointment for this.
    • Please refer to the website of the  Criminal Justice Information Services (CJIS) in order to obtain an Identity History Summary Check (FBI Report).
    • Alternatively you can contact the state/local police department where you reside or last resided in the United States to request that they conduct a criminal records search and provide you with a document reflecting that there is no history of a criminal record.


  • U.S. citizens may be asked to submit fingerprints e.g. to conduct business in the USA in various jobs or professions.
    • Fingerprint cards can be printed from the FBI website (form FD-258). Note: The U.S. Embassy in Luxembourg does not provide this service.
    • To have your fingerprints taken please schedule an appointment with the “Police Technique” office within the “Police Judiciaire” department in Luxembourg by sending an e-mail to  spj-pt-ed@police.etat.lu or by calling: +352 244 60 6000  from 9 a.m. to11 a.m. and from 2 p.m. to 4 p.m. Monday through Friday.
