What Is An Expedited FBI Fingerprint Check?

FBI Fingerprints are used by the FBI to positively identify people and cross reference their unique fingerprints to their criminal history. Most agencies and states require specific employees or personnel to submit their fingerprints to the FBI for an FBI background check. FBI Fingerprints are nothing more than one step of a greater process which ultimately is obtaining your full FBI background check report. An expedited background check offers faster processing and mailing times than a regular background check. See pricing below.

Why The FBI Requests Your Fingerprints

During an FBI fingerprint background check the FBI will need to access certain personal information from you in order to pull up your criminal record. One of those personal items is your unique fingerprint pattern!

Your fingerprint pattern is used to access national information which includes your "rap sheet" or full criminal record. The agency or department that is requesting you to get an FBI background check most likely needs this information specifically.

The only successful way to obtain your FBI background check is by submitting your fingerprints to the FBI directly and awaiting their response. PrintScan offers a full "done for you" solution in order to retrieve your FBI background check.

FBI Background Check With Apostille

When traveling out of the country there is sometimes a need for you to apostille your FBI background check. This apostille process is handled during your appointment and requires extra fees for processing. Due to something called the hague convention, certain countries require you to apostille an FBI background check.
