Fast Way to Obtain Cana­dian Police Check.
RCMP Crim­i­nal Record Check at Low Price.


World­wide Foren­sic Ser­vices has helped thou­sands of local and inter­na­tional clients to obtain RCMP Crim­i­nal Record Check, by dig­i­tiz­ing ink fin­ger­prints and elec­tron­i­cally trans­mit­ting to the RCMP, via a secure server. 

Our fin­ger­print­ing agency is accred­ited and cer­ti­fied by the Royal Cana­dian Mounted Police (RCMP) Canada, to con­vert paper fin­ger­prints to encrypted dig­i­tal for­mat for elec­tronic trans­mis­sion. Click here to see RCMP’s Accred­i­ta­tion Certificate. 

You can get your fin­ger­prints taken by the local police and send us the orig­i­nal fin­ger­print form. We will dig­i­tize fin­ger­prints with Card Scan tech­nol­ogy and trans­mit to the RCMP, the same day. 

Please send us a quick mes­sage and we will email you the detailed infor­ma­tion and forms, as soon as possible:


The fin­ger­prints are dig­i­tized and trans­mit­ted to the RCMP, the same day we receive them. The Cer­ti­fied Crim­i­nal Record Check (duly cer­ti­fied, embossed and signed by the RCMP on their let­terhead, click here to see the sam­ple) is directly sent by the RCMP to the appli­cant or a third party, via Canada Post reg­u­lar mail. An elec­tronic trans­mis­sion of fin­ger­prints to the RCMP reduces wait time to 3–5 busi­ness days plus the mail­ing time (If a per­son was ever charged by the police in Canada (con­victed or not con­victed), over­stayed in Canada or deported from Canada, the pro­cess­ing time can be up to 120 days or even more).

To fur­ther speed up the process, we can receive cer­ti­fied crim­i­nal record check from the RCMP and send it to the appli­cant or a third party (as per request) via courier, at an addi­tional cost. This is the quick­est way to obtain poilce clear­ance cer­tifi­cate from Canada.

We accept inked fin­ger­prints taken by fin­ger­print­ing agen­cies or police author­i­ties from the coun­tries around the world. We also accept Live Scan dig­i­tal fin­ger­prints, printed on paper.

Fast FBI Clearance
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.

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 an Embassy/Consulate to pro­vide full ser­vice and to reduce the costs.Authentication-and-LegalizationPlease con­tact us and we promise to pro­vide our excel­lent ser­vices at rea­son­able fee.
