Texas state police certificates are issued by the Texas Department of Public Safety (DPS).

The official name for this service is Fingerprint Applicant Services of Texas (FAST) and all its locations are operated by a third party company named IdentoGO.

FBI clearance is required separately and in addition to the state police check for Canada and Australia’s permanent residency application along with US green card i485 application.

  1. Photo ID: Passport, driver license, or state ID.
