Fingerprint service

For more than 20 years we have been managing the fingerprint service for the private sector, corporate sector, and various national and international governments, as requested by amongst others the American Consulate in Amsterdam.

Taking fingerprints is often part of formal procedures where strict rules apply for different countries. The fingerprint service of Van Kappel Security BV does not only cover the actual taking of fingerprints, but incorporates supervision of the whole process, in cases where this is needed. We take care of the right approach throughout the whole process, up to and including the secured dispatch of the applicable documents. This guarantees a unique, professional service with a personal touch.
