Be Prepared for Your Livescan Appointment: Essential Tips for a Smooth Experience

July 11, 20232 min read

When it comes to Livescan appointments, being prepared is key to ensuring a smooth and efficient process. Whether you're required to undergo fingerprinting for professional licensing, employment, or volunteer purposes, taking the necessary steps beforehand can help facilitate a hassle-free experience. In this blog post, we will explore important tips to help you prepare for your Livescan appointment, ensuring that everything goes smoothly from start to finish.


A. Hydration for Dry Hands: If you have dry hands, it's recommended to moisturize with lotion multiple times per day leading up to your Livescan appointment. By keeping your skin well-hydrated, you can help ensure clearer and smoother fingerprint impressions.

B. Communicate about Sweaty or Wet Hands: For individuals with sweaty or wet hands, it's crucial to inform your fingerprint technician upon check-in. This allows them to take appropriate measures to obtain accurate fingerprint impressions. Open communication ensures that they can provide the necessary guidance and support to facilitate a successful Livescan process.

C. Clean Hands for Better Results: Whenever possible, it's advisable to arrive with clean hands for your appointment. Washing your hands with soap and water beforehand removes dirt, oil, and any substances that may interfere with clear fingerprint impressions. Clean hands contribute to accurate and reliable results.

D. Arrive Prepared with Required Documentation: Before your Livescan appointment, ensure that you have all the necessary documentation and forms, including the "Request for Livescan Service" form provided by your requesting agency. Double-check that you have completed the relevant sections of the form accurately.

E. Plan Ahead for Fees: Familiarize yourself with the fees associated with Livescan services, including the fingerprint rolling fee and applicable government fees. Having the correct payment method ready will save time and streamline the process during your appointment.

Conclusion: Being prepared for your Livescan appointment sets the foundation for a successful experience. By following these essential tips, you can ensure that your fingerprints are captured accurately and efficiently. Remember to hydrate dry hands, communicate about sweaty or wet hands, arrive with clean hands, and bring all necessary documentation and fees. At Excell Security, we are committed to providing a seamless Livescan process and supporting you throughout your security journey. Stay prepared, and let us help you navigate the fingerprinting process with confidence.
