How long will it take for my fingerprint results to be provided to my security representative?

Result timeline varies. You should check with the office requiring you to give fingerprints for result status, if needed.

I need biometrics for my immigration packet. Can I get my photos taken at the security office along with my fingerprints?

No. The security office can only complete the fingerprint biometric requirement. Photos can be obtained by visiting the Visual Information Office in the same building Bldg. 2948, 2nd floor.

When is my security clearance reinvestigation due?

Reinvestigations for Secret security clearances occur every 10 years. Currently, reinvestigations for all Top Secret security clearances are done every six years, until further notice.

Am I required to receive a Foreign Travel Brief for personal foreign travel?

Army Regulation 380-67 requires all personnel possessing a DoD security clearance to report all personal foreign travel prior to traveling. Personnel having access to classified information are required to receive a foreign travel briefing by a counterintelligence agent, security specialist, or a security manager.
