FingerprintingLivescan is an electronic process of taking fingerprints the city no longer does ink print cards. The City of Burlingame offers Livescan services for citizens, (residents and non-residents) by appointment only on Tuesday, Wednesday, and Thursday every half hour from 8:30 am to 10:00 am . We do not livescan on Monday or Friday. The Livescan application should be provided to you by the agency/employer requesting that you be fingerprinted.


The City of Burlingame charges $35.00 to do the rolling of the fingerprints. There are additional charges from the Department of Justice and FBI, depending on each individual form. The fees vary and we ask citizens to bring $100 in cash to cover all charges. If you have a billing number on your form then you are only responsible for the $35.00 rolling fee. The day of your appointment you are required to bring your Livescan application completed, picture id (i.e. passport, school id, driver’s license), and $100 in cash.

We ask you to please be on time as we have a tight schedule. If you are unable to make it to your appointment, please call and cancel so we may be able to schedule another citizen.
