Frequently Asked Questions

Rolled (ink) fingerprints are required by the RCMP for a fingerprint-based records check. These fingerprints also need to be done in black ink. In Nigeria, you will have to contact the police headquarters in the area you are living in to find out if fingerprinting is available at that location.

The RCMP holds high standards for the quality required for fingerprints to be deemed acceptable. If the quality of your fingerprints does not meet these standards, it can result in slower processing and can lead to your application being returned. That being said, to prepare for having your fingerprints taken, avoid any tasks that may be harsh on your fingers (rock climbing, manual labour…etc). We also recommend that you use glycerin-based lotions to hydrate your hand if you are prone to dry skin.
