Do you need to apostille your FBI criminal background check for Spain?
At National Apostille, Inc., we take the guesswork out of obtaining an apostille on your FBI Criminal Background Check. We can apostille FBI background checks issued within the past 90 days through the US Department of State in Washington D.C.
Most countries will only accept background checks issued and apostilled within the past 90 days. If your background check is older, you will need to obtain a new one. For some countries, you may also need to obtain a State issued background check. For example, state background checks issued from the local Police, Sheriff’s Department, or a State background check.
The first step is to contact an approved FBI Channeler to assist you in obtaining your FBI background check. Please contact us for a list of recommended FBI Channelers. If the FBI Channeler is unable to help, please contact the FBI directly. More information here: https://www.fbi.gov/services/cjis/identity-history-summary-checks
