Do you live outside of Canada and need fingerprints for an RCMP certified criminal background check?
Commissionaires provides an international fingerprinting service for an RCMP certified criminal record check. We offer digital conversion of ink fingerprints if you are applying for:
- Canadian Citizenship
- Permanent Residency
- Foreign Employment
- Foreign Education
- An International Travel Visa
How does it work?
In the country outside of Canada where you are currently based, get your fingerprints taken at your nearest police station or accredited fingerprinting agency.
Ink fingerprints taken outside of Canada can be couriered to our Commissionaires Ottawa Headquarters for processing, at which time we will digitize them for direct, electronic submission to the RCMP.
The RCMP processes all transactions within 72 hours from submission, providing no criminal record is found.
Note: If a conviction is found, processing time could exceed 120 days.
For a faster turnaround, results from the RCMP certified criminal background check are mailed directly to Commissionaires and then couriered directly to you to save time and allow for document tracking.
What are the steps?
Clients are required to complete and submit international fingerprinting forms (PDF), a set of ink fingerprints and photocopies of two pieces of government-issued ID.
