Fingerprinting services for police certificates

Where can I go to do my fingerprints?

The main provider for fingerprinting services is Kiwibank. They offer this service at many locations in New Zealand.

You can find their locations and make an appointment on their website.

Kiwibank fingerprinting services

Due to the nature of the fingerprinting service, if you're unwell or have been in contact with anyone who has travelled internationally within the last 14 days, Kiwibank would appreciate you delaying your appointment.

From 30 December 2020 Kiwibank no longer offers electronic fingerprinting. However, their manual fingerprinting services will still be available in selected branches.
