If you have previously been fingerprinted, you will still need to create an account. To do so, follow steps 1-4 on the DHS 2.0 instructions form –HCMC, located on the DHS Background 2.0 task. Your application will be processed by DHS and they will determine if new fingerprints are required.
How do I know if I need to be fingerprinted?
