Can I get my California Live scan sent to a different state?
Currently, live scan services are state-specific and are only valid in the state where the live scan is done. This means that if you need a live scan for a state you are not currently in, it needs to be done within the state that it is requested for or by a live scan vendor licensed in that state. This gives you three options:
1. Visit a Live Scan location in the requested state to complete your live scan.
2. Request a vendor licensed in that state to travel to your location to conduct a live scan.
3. Ask your requesting agency if you may submit an ink fingerprint card instead.
You can also go through a card conversion provider; they can scan your fingerprint card and submit your application as a live scan transaction. The card conversion provider will need to be in the state that is requiring the live scan. Certifix does not provide card conversion services at this time.
