What is an FBI Background Check Apostille ?

 

An “Apostille” is a form of authentication issued to documents for use in countries that participate in the Hague Convention of 1961. The Apostille page is stapled or riveted  with a metal clasp onto the FBI background Check you will use internationally.

 

Elite Documents Services can physically present your FBI background check to the US Department of State, making the process faster and more secure.  Currently the US Department of State Apostille service is taking an average of 3-4 business days for your FBI background check to be Apostilled.
