Are Alien Flight Student Program candidates required to be fingerprinted after submitting a new training request?
Candidates that have previously submitted fingerprints and received confirmation of fingerprint receipt for a prior AFSP training requests are not required to submit fingerprints again. The AFSP will use the fingerprints on file for all the candidate’s subsequent training requests to send to the Federal Bureau of investigation (FBI) to conduct the criminal history records check. If you do not receive the fingerprint receipt e-mail within seven days following the date of documentation accepted, contact the AFSP helpdesk at AFSP.Help@dhs.gov
If the fingerprints on file are no longer acceptable, the candidate and the provider will be emailed with updated fingerprint instructions and an explicit reason why reprints are required.
