Important Notice for FBI Criminal Background Check Apostille requests:
If you don’t yet have an FBI Background check, you can obtain one from FBI-Approved Channelers– These are agencies that have the authority to provide you with an original FBI report (background check). Contact any of the channelers for further information, you will be working directly with the Channeler to obtain your FBI background check, the average turn-around-time is about 1 to 2 weeks for the channeler to mail the background check to you.
Some channelers are able to e-mail the criminal reports to you, which are also accepted by the U.S Department of State for Apostille/Authentication purposes. However, make sure that printed reports are accepted in the country you will use the FBI background check in.
