National Background Check, Inc. (NBCI), is now able to assist customers who need to have FBI background check results apostilled. NBCI’s background check results are now returned from the FBI in a PDF format that has the FBI seal in the background, and is signed by the FBI Section Chief. The FBI terms this type of response from them as an “FBI Authenticated Document”. Not every channeler can receive results in this format, but NBCI advanced its systems, per FBI specs, to be able to provide this service to their customers. As an “FBI Authenticated Document,” customers can now send the authenticated document to the US Department of State 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 State Department for further action." The mailing address for the State Department is listed below.

U.S. Department of State
518 23rd Street NW SA-1
Washington, D.C. 20520”

NBCI can assist with obtaining FBI background check results for the following reasons:

  • Adoptions
  • To live, work or travel abroad
  • For personal reasons
  • To challenge what is on your record or settle court related matters

NBCI will process submitted paperwork 48–96 hours after receipt of documents, and return the results via e-mail, regular mail, UPS overnight or UPS 2-day. The full array of services provided by NBCI will make obtaining an acceptable FBI background check a much easier process!!
