FBI Background Check Apostille

If you landed a new job overseas, you will need an FBI Background Check. It might be difficult to figure out how to call the FBI for a background check, but keep reading for a step-by-step instruction and explanation.

An FBI Criminal Record History Report, sometimes known as a "rap sheet," is a list of information kept by the FBI. Federal employment, military service, citizenship, and arrest history are all included in these reports. The date, arresting agency, cause for the arrest, and disposition of the arrest are normally shown on the rap sheet if you have any arrests (whether you served time or charges were dropped).

An FBI background check can be requested in three ways:

  • Apply directly to the FBI using an electronic system

  • Apply directly to the FBI by sending a hard copy through the U.S. Postal Service

  • Using an FBI approved Channeler

You will need to submit fingerprints as well as pertinent information such as your name, any aliases, date of birth, current address, and more, regardless of which path you use.
