During the months of June, July, and August, we process hundreds of FBI background checks CRC through the U.S. Department in Washington, D.C.
These three months is our busiest months to process FBI background checks through the U.S. Department of State.
The most common countries we Apostille FBI background checks are for Italy, Spain, Russia, Ecuador, Greece, Panama, South Korea, and more! We also provide FBI background checks for countries who are not members of the Hague Apostille Convention (Example: UAE, Qatar, etc..).
Our office in Washington, D.C. authenticates documents daily through the U.S. Department of State – Office of Authentication. Every morning, between the hours of 8am and 9am, our staff hand-delivers to the Authentications offices and picks-up completed documents. The current estimated processing time is four business days.
If you are planning to work, relocate, travel to, and/or get married in another country this summer, the receiving country will request a recent background check from the FBI. In addition to an FBI background check, you may also be asked to apostille your birth certificate, single status affidavit, divorce decree (previously married), and a State background check.
Step 1: Contact an FBI Channeler – We recommend that you contact an FBI Channeler to expedite your background check.
