These essential pieces of official government identification actually have a wide variety of uses beyond travel.

Fingerprinting

Fingerprinting in the traditional sense is done with ink and paper. Ink fingerprinting can be done at your local private mailbox store. A professional will direct you in how to apply the ink correctly to your fingerprints, and apply it to the official paper. Ink fingerprinting may be used for a variety of purposes, including:

  • Background checks for employment
  • Checks prior to licensing, such as for working with children or as a security guard
  • As records to help identify adults and children who may not know their whole name and address in the event of separation

Livescan

Livescan is a technique that allows the capture of fingerprints and palm prints to be recorded electronically. This allows for digital storage and analysis, and removes the need for ink and paper as used in traditional fingerprinting. Livescan is often used at the border of some countries to record the identity and information of those entering the country. Livescan fingerprinting can be conducted at your local private mailbox store, where there is also a notary public on hand to assist you with notarizing any official documents.

Livescan is used for:

  • Background checks for employment
  • Checks prior to licensing, such as for working with children or as a security guard
  • As records to help identify adults and children who may not know their whole name and address in the event of separation

Live scan is different from ink and paper finger printing because it captures data from a larger area of the body, in greater detail, and is stored and accessed more easily than traditional fingerprinting.

Passports 

Your local private mailbox can be the ideal resource to help you navigate getting your U.S. passport. Your local private mailbox can help you order a new or replacement passport, and allow you to securely receive your passport by mail if you have a private mailbox. Passports are one of the most highly valued, reliable and widely used forms of identification. Passports can even be used in other countries to as a official identification. Passports are required for overseas travel, as they provide a universally recognized form of identification that indicates essential personal information and citizenship. And there are several other uses for having a passport.

Uses for passports include:

  • Excellent form of photo identification which can be used whenever ID is needed, from entering secure buildings, to obtaining state IDs, to international travel
  • Proof of age, as required when buying alcoholic drinks or cigarettes
  • Proof of citizenship, which is often required when applying for visas
  • Requirement for international adoption to prove your citizenship
