Every month we receive dozens of letters signed by the Criminal Justice Information Services (Biometric Services Division) signed by the Section Chief Kimberly J. Del Greco for an Apostille.
If you’re planning to live, work, adopt, or travel to a foreign country who is a member of the Hague Apostille Convention, you maybe asked to provide an Apostille on a FBI Criminal Background Check.
** Note: Some countries may ask you to provide a background check from your State’s Department of Justice (DOJ) or the local police station. Be sure you provide what is requested in order to avoid any delays.
The fastest way to obtain your background check and the authentication letter is to contact an FBI Channeler.
The two most popular we’ve seen most people use are (We are not affiliated with these companies):
National Background Check, Inc.
You will first need to contact one of these companies in order to start the process. They will instruct you on what steps you should take in order to obtain your FBI Background Check results. You will also need to request a letter signed by the Criminal Justice Information Services (Biometric Services Division) signed by the Section Chief Kimberly J. Del Greco.
** Note: If you go through a local Live Scan service, it will delay the process. Use an FBI Channeler only.
Here is an example of this letter:
Be sure an original letter signed by the Section Chief Kimberly J. Del Greco is mailed to your address. Some companies will e-mail you this letter which is not acceptable. An emailed letter is not an original and will be rejected. Note: If you make a copy of the original, the copy will display the words “Copy Unauthorized” or “Copy” in reverse. Please send us the original you received from the Department of Justice – Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI).
