How to Apostille a FBI Background Check

We provide fast Apostille service for an FBI Background Check issued from Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI). The first step is to contact an FBI Approved Channeler for assistants.  The FBI Approved Channeler will be able to obtain your background check within a few days.  This expedited service is a must if you plan to complete the process within 2-3 weeks.  Visit our FBI Apostille website for more information.

If you’re planning to live, work, adopt, or travel to a foreign country who is a member of the Hague Apostille Convention, you may be asked to provide an FBI Background Check with an Apostille.  The Apostille helps authenticate the document for acceptance in the other country.

When submitting your fingerprints to the FBI Approved Channeler, you’ll also need to request an authentication letter of your background check results.  This letter is generally signed by a Section Chief, Biometric Services Section of the Criminal Justice Information Services Division (CJIS).  As of this post, you’ll see the name and signature of Kimberly J. Del Greco.  This document will need to be physically mailed to your address so you can forward it to our office either in Washington, D.C. or Los Angeles, CA.

The processing time to Apostille your documents and have them delivered to your location is 5-8 business days. (excluding Saturday, Sunday, Major Holidays, and International Shipping). The first business day is the day after we receive your documents.

Our FBI Apostille service saves you time and money by processing your paperwork directly with the US Department of State in Washington, D.C.  We hand drop-off and pick-up your documents once complete.  This ensures your documents are secure and completed quickly.

If the country requesting your FBI Background Check Apostille is not a member of the Hague Apostille Convention, then your documents may require further authentication through the U.S. Department of State in Washington, D.C. and legalization through the Embassy / Consulate office. Our Staff in D.C. can handle your Department of State and legalization requests quickly.

Apostilles can be complicated. Don’t leave this process to untrained employees or non-professionals who do not fully understand the Apostille process and the unique requirements of certain countries. Your paperwork could be rejected costing you time and money. Don’t let this happen to you!
