National Background Check, Inc. (NBCI)
is one of a few companies in the United States to be recognized
by the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) as an approved FBI
Channeling Agency. We can obtain expedited FBI Background Checks
for non-criminal applicants by submitting fingerprint cards directly
to the FBI.
NBCI is also one of a handful of Channelers
whose results can be Apostilled, if
necessary. Our results are returned from the FBI in a PDF format
with the FBI seal in the background. These results are signed
by the FBI Section Chief, and are termed "FBI Authenticated
Document," by the FBI. Once applicants have their results
returned to them from NBCI, they the applicant can then
send the authenticated document to the U.S. Department of State
in Washington, DC to be apostilled.
Per the FBI: "If you are a DO Channeler
that receives the DOCE response with the FBI seal and Section
Chief signature via the pdf attachment, then you are receiving
an authenticated response. If an applicant needs an apostille,
they must take the authenticated document to the U.S. Department
of State in Washington, DC for further action".

WHY REQUEST A CRIMINAL BACKGROUND CHECK
i .For review and correction purposes, to challenge
the information on the record, and/or other
court related matters.
National Background Check, Inc. and our
FBI Channeling service has the ability to provide any United
States citizen or lawful permanent legal resident the right to
request a copy of their personal FBI criminal background check.
Federal regulation permits that you can request a copy for personal
review, to challenge the information, for court related matters
or other personal reasons. If you are requesting your FBI criminal
background check to challenge the information, once our FBI Channeling
service has returned the results, any questions about the information
should be directed to the FBI. If you are requesting a copy of
your FBI criminal background check for court related matters,
an attorney is permitted to receive the results. In order for
an attorney to receive the background check, the request must
be submitted on the attorney's letterhead with both the individual
and the attorney signatures and a release statement indicating
the applicant is aware that the FBI background check results
are being returned to the attorney.
ii .To satisfy certain legal requirements such as a
requirement for US Citizens immigrating to another country,
or to adopt a child;
FBI criminal background checks are usually
required for immigration purposes or when applying to adopt a
child. In order to help meet this requirement, National Background
Check Inc. is able to provide expedited FBI Background Checks
via our FBI Channeling services, which can help speed up the
paperwork necessary for a successful adoption or immigration
iii .To satisfy a requirement to live in a foreign country;
to satisfy a requirement to work in a foreign country, and/or
to satisfy a requirement to travel in a foreign country;

can provide the fast results that you are looking for in order
to help keep travel plans on schedule.
