Authen­ti­ca­tion and Legal­iza­tion of the RCMP’s Cer­ti­fied Crim­i­nal Record Check

For­eign Gov­ern­ments and Orga­ni­za­tions some­times require the RCMP’s Cer­ti­fied Crim­i­nal Record Check to be authen­ti­cated by the Depart­ment of For­eign Affairs and Inter­na­tional Trade (DFAIT) and legal­ized by the respec­tive Embassy/Consulate, before they accept it.

Banner Legalization2Clients Living Abroad

Canada is not a sig­na­tory of Hague Con­ven­tion abol­ish­ing the require­ment for legal­iza­tion for for­eign pub­lic doc­u­ments; there­fore the term “Apos­tille” is not used for cer­ti­fi­ca­tion of doc­u­ments in Canada. The doc­u­ments orig­i­nat­ing in Canada need to be authen­ti­cated and legal­ized for use in a for­eign country.

In addi­tion to our express fin­ger­print­ing ser­vices, we can get RCMP’s cer­ti­fied crim­i­nal record check authen­ti­cated by DFAIT and legal­ized by the respec­tive Embassy/Consulate to pro­vide full ser­vice and to reduce the costs.

Please con­tact us and we promise to pro­vide our excel­lent ser­vices at rea­son­able fee.

Fre­quently Asked Questions

The RCMP has posted a list of accred­ited agen­cies on their web­site and your company’s name is not present in that list. How can I make sure that you are accred­ited by the RCMP to pro­vide card scan service?

World­wide Foren­sic Ser­vices Inc. is an affil­i­ate of ClearNeed Infor­ma­tion Sys­tems listed on the RCMP’s web­site. We are a lead­ing fin­ger­print­ing agency in Canada, pro­vid­ing ser­vices to the Inter­na­tional clients. We have effec­tively pro­vided our ser­vices to thou­sands of our clients liv­ing abroad. 

I have already sent my fin­ger­prints to RCMP and I am wait­ing for the Cer­ti­fied Crim­i­nal Record Check from Canada. Can I sub­mit another appli­ca­tion to the RCMP through your company?

Yes you can. You can sub­mit more than one appli­ca­tion to the RCMP, with­out any problem.

Can I email you a scanned ver­sion of my fin­ger­prints for elec­tronic trans­mis­sion to the RCMP for obtain­ing Cana­dian back­ground check?

Unfor­tu­nately we can­not process scanned ver­sion of fin­ger­prints. You need to send us the orig­i­nal fin­ger­print form along with the other doc­u­ments, as per the check list.

How would I know that you have received my documents?

Once we receive your doc­u­ments and trans­mit fin­ger­prints to the RCMP (the same day), we will send you a con­fir­ma­tion email. You do not need to keep on send­ing emails to us to check as to whether we have received your doc­u­ments or not.

Can I get my fin­ger­prints taken on the form used by the police of the coun­try, I am liv­ing in?

Yes you can. You have to make sure that the fin­ger­print lay­out is the same as on the RCMP’s form or the FBI’s fin­ger­print card. Please have a look on the sam­ple fin­ger­print form.

Once you receive my doc­u­ments, how long will it take to receive the RCMP’s crim­i­nal record check?

The RCMP takes 3 to 5 busi­ness days to process fin­ger­prints and after that they send out the cer­ti­fied crim­i­nal record check via reg­u­lar mail. If there is a crim­i­nal record, the RCMP can take up to 4 months to send the results.

Can RCMP send the Cer­ti­fied Crim­i­nal Record Check out­side of Canada?

Yes the RCMP can send the Cer­ti­fied Crim­i­nal Record Check to you via reg­u­lar mail, at no addi­tional cost.

I need the Cer­ti­fied Crim­i­nal Record Check as soon as pos­si­ble. Can I request the RCMP to send it to your com­pany and you can then for­ward to me via courier?

Yes you can. You need to com­plete Third Party Con­sent Form and write our address on it. We will receive it from the RCMP and send it to you via courier, at an addi­tional courier fee. Please send us a quick email pro­vid­ing your com­plete address. We will obtain a quote from the courier com­pany and let you know.

I just need “Name and Date of Birth Based Police Clear­ance”. Can I obtain it while liv­ing overseas?

You need to sub­mit fin­ger­prints for obtain­ing Cer­ti­fied Crim­i­nal Record Check from the RCMP. You need to be present in Canada for basic name and date of birth based back­ground check.

Why do you ask for a pass­port size photograph?

The pho­to­graph is printed on the cer­ti­fied crim­i­nal record check. We trans­mit pho­to­graph, along with the fin­ger­prints, to the RCMP.

How can I pay for your services?

You can pay by Credit Card (Visa or Mas­ter Card only) or Pay­Pal. If you want to pay via Pay­Pal, send us a quick mes­sage to request a Pay­Pal invoice.

Can my friend or rel­a­tive pay on my behalf?

Yes they can. You can for­ward credit card pay­ment form to your friend or fam­ily mem­ber. They can com­plete it, sign it and email/fax it to us.

How can I check the sta­tus of my application?

Once we receive your doc­u­ments and trans­mit fin­ger­prints to the RCMP, we will send you a con­fir­ma­tion email.  Unless autho­rized by the appli­cant, the RCMP do not release any fur­ther infor­ma­tion to World­wide Foren­sic Ser­vices Inc. The appli­cant or an autho­rized third party can inquire about the sta­tus of fin­ger­prints sub­mis­sion by send­ing an email to the RCMP at civilnps@rcmp-grc.gc.ca.

I have a pho­to­copy of fin­ger­print form. Can I send it to you for processing?

We can­not process pho­to­copy. You need to send us the orig­i­nal fin­ger­print form via mail or courier.

Can RCMP send my Cer­ti­fied Crim­i­nal Record Check to my lawyer, immi­gra­tion office or a third party?

Yes it is pos­si­ble. You need to com­plete a third party con­sent form and write their address on it. The right thumb print on that form is mandatory.

When I went to the police to get my fin­ger­prints taken, I for­got to take my right thumb print on the third party con­sent form. Do I need to go back to the police to do it?

You can just buy a stamp pad (any colour) and put right thumbprint on this form. If you are not sure about the clar­ity of the thumbprint, please send us 2, 3 forms and we will select the clear­est one.

Can you also help to obtain back­ground check from the FBI in the same way as from the RCMP?

From Canada we can­not elec­tron­i­cally trans­mit fin­ger­prints to the FBI to reduce wait time.

The Cer­ti­fied Crim­i­nal Record Check issued by the RCMP needs to be authen­ti­cated and legal­ized by an Embassy/ Con­sulate in Canada. Do you also offer this service?

Yes we also offer this ser­vice at an addi­tional fee. Please let us know your require­ment and we will send you a price quote.
