In order to obtain a resident permit in Madagascar, the Malagasy government requires a police certificate from the United States.  The Embassy is not able to provide such a certificate.  However, procedures do exist for obtaining a police certificate from the FBI while living abroad.  In order to do so you must send and submit your fingerprints and a check or money order for $18 to the FBI.  Please read the  information from the FBI on how to obtain your criminal record please see this site( and follow the instructions.

There is no charge for having your fingerprints taken at the Embassy because this is not part of main consular services. We will do it for you as a courtesy.  click here to schedule an appointment for this service.
