If you are planning to live, work, adopt, or travel to a foreign country, the following countries will request an FBI background check with an apostille.

The first step is to contact an approved FBI Channeler to help expedite the background check process. If you attempt to go through the FBI directly, the wait time can exceed 3 months. If you contact an FBI Channeler, you should receive your background check within a few days.
If you are outside the United States or in a rush, you can request the FBI Channeler to email you your background check results (Digital copy). You can then forward this email with our FBI order form and credit card authorization form for fast next business morning processing.
