We also recommend that people who need a “certificate of good conduct” or a “certificate of good behavior” consult the appropriate ministry of the government of Israel and/or consult the U.S. Embassy’s list of lawyers.
  • To request a police certificate from the FBI, please visit this web site.  You must submit a completed fingerprint card (FD-258), a letter outlining the purpose of the fingerprint submission, and an $18 money order made payable to the U.S. Department of Treasury.  This package should be sent to:

    • FBI- CJIS
      1000 Custer Hollow Road

  • The U.S. Embassy unfortunately does not provide fingerprinting unless we require it for a consular service.  We are unable to recommend a particular company to do fingerprinting.  You may wish to contact a private investigator or private fingerprinting company to see if they offer this service.
