Do you need to apostille your Background Check?
Are you in need of an apostille for your criminal background check? Look no further than USA Apostille, Inc. Our team can assist you with obtaining an apostille for your criminal background check issued from any of the 50 U.S. states, the District of Columbia, or the FBI. For countries that are not members of the Hague Apostille Convention, we can still process your background check through the U.S. Department of State and the Embassy or Consulate office.
To get started, you’ll need to obtain your background check from the appropriate authority. This may include your local police station, Sheriff’s department, State (DOJ), or the U.S. Federal Government (FBI). Some countries may require both a local background check and an FBI background check.
Once you have your background check, you can mail the original or a certified copy to our office for processing. If you have a digital FBI background check, you can simply email it to our Washington DC apostille office. Please note that while obtaining a background check from the FBI is the most common option, a background check issued from the local Police, Sheriff, or State office can only be authenticated from the State of issue.
If the requesting country is asking for a local Police or Sheriff’s Department background check, you’ll need to have a letter drafted and notarized by the appropriate authority. Once you’ve obtained your background check, you’ll need to meet with a local traveling notary to notarize the officer’s signature on the document. The notary will also need to use the correct notarial wording for the state before mailing the notarized background check with our order forms to our office for processing.
Obtaining a background check from the State’s Department of Justice can be more complicated, so be sure to contact the appropriate authority for step-by-step directions.
