A FBI background check is a criminal history check conducted by the Federal Bureau of Investigation that is used to determine if an individual is eligible to purchase a firearm. An apostille is a form of authentication that is often used for international documents. It is a certificate that is attached to a document in order to prove that the document is genuine and has been signed by a notary public.
If you are seeking employment, professional licensing, or educational opportunities in a foreign country, you may be required to submit a certified U.S. criminal history record, also known as an FBI background check apostille. Many foreign organizations requesting an apostille on a U.S. criminal history report are unaware that the document must first be certified by the U.S. Department of State. An Apostille can be obtained from the California Secretary of State. Apostilles can only be issued for public documents which were executed in the territory of the issuing authority. Typically, these are documents issued by a court (including divorce decrees, criminal records, and bankruptcy petitions), a notary public, or a state or local government official.
In order to get an apostille for yourself, you need to first request a copy of your FBI background check from the FBI. If you have been convicted of a crime in the past, you may not be eligible for an apostille.
