Inked fingerprints digitzation, Canada

Worldwide Forensic Services Inc is accredited and cer­ti­fied by the CCRTIS Division of the Royal Canadian Mounted Police (RCMP) Canada to convert fin­ger­prints on paper to encrypted dig­i­tal format for electronic trans­mis­sion. We are affiliated with ClearNeed Information Systems Inc and have helped thousands of local and inter­na­tional clients to obtain Canadian police clearance (also known as Police Check, Criminal Background Check, Certificate of Good Conduct, Canadian PCC etc.), by dig­i­tiz­ing inked fin­ger­prints and elec­tron­i­cally trans­mit­ting to the RCMP.

Get your fin­ger­prints taken by the local police and send us the orig­i­nal fin­ger­print form. We will dig­i­tize inked fin­ger­prints with card-scan tech­nol­ogy and electronically transmit to the RCMP.
Please us a quick message and we will email you the guidelines and all the forms, as soon as possible:

The fin­ger­prints are 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*. 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 police clearance cer­tifi­cate from Canada.

*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. 

We accept Ink & Roll fin­ger­prints taken by fin­ger­print­ing agencies or police author­i­ties from all the countries. We also accept Live Scan dig­i­tal fin­ger­prints, printed on paper.

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.

Apostille Services Canada

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 in Canada, at reduced cost.

Frequently Asked Questions

The RCMP has listed accred­ited agen­cies on their web­site and your company’s name is not on that list. How can I make sure you are accred­ited by the RCMP?

World­wide Foren­sic Ser­vices Inc is an affil­i­ate of ClearNeed Infor­ma­tion Sys­tems (listed on the RCMP’s web­site). We are one of the lead­ing fin­ger­print­ing agencies in Canada, pro­vid­ing ser­vices to the Inter­na­tional clients. We have helped over 3000 clients living overseas.

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

Unfor­tu­nately we can­not process scanned ver­sion of fin­ger­prints. You would need to send us the orig­i­nal fin­ger­print form (via mail or courier), along with the other doc­u­ments, as per the check-list.

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

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

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 check as to whether we have received your doc­u­ments or not.

Can I get my fin­ger­prints taken on the fingerprint 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. We also accept fingerprints taken with live-scan and printed on the fingerprints form.

Once you receive my doc­u­ments, how long will it take to receive the Cana­dian Police Check?

The RCMP takes 3 to 5 busi­ness days to process fin­ger­prints and after that they send out the cer­ti­fied crim­i­nal record check (hard copy), via non-trackable Canada Post reg­u­lar mail.

If there is a crim­i­nal record, the RCMP can take up to 4 months or even longer to send the results.

Can the RCMP send the Cana­dian Crim­i­nal Record Check to an address out­side of Canada?

Yes the RCMP can send the Cer­ti­fied Crim­i­nal Record Check to any address (in Canada or outside of Canada), at no addi­tional cost.

I need the RCMP’s Cer­ti­fied Crim­i­nal Record Check as soon as pos­si­ble. Can I request the RCMP to send it to your com­pany and you can then send it 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 my photograph?

The pho­to­graph is printed on the cer­ti­fied crim­i­nal record check. With fingerprints, we also trans­mit a pho­to­graph of the applicant.

How can I pay for your services?

You can pay by a Credit Card (Visa or Mas­terCard only), Pay­Pal, email trans­fer (to info@fingerscan.ca), an inter­na­tional money order or bank draft.

If you want to pay via Pay­Pal, send us a quick mes­sage to request a Pay­Pal invoice. You do not need a PayPal account to pay via PayPal.

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 to us.

How can I check the sta­tus of my application?

Once we trans­mit fin­ger­prints to the RCMP, we will send you a con­fir­ma­tion email.

To check the status, you can call the RCMP at 613-998-6362 or send­ an email to CCRTIS-SCICTR@rcmp-grc.gc.ca.

The RCMP do not allow us to check the status or follow up with them.

Can I print the Fin­ger­print form C-216C emailed by you and get my fin­ger­prints taken on it?

Yes you can.

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 use a stamp pad (any color) 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.
