A FBI background check is a thorough check of an individual's commercial, criminal, and financial records. An apostille is a certification issued by a competent authority that a document is a true and accurate copy of the original document.
If you are going to be working with children in another country, they may require that you have an apostilled FBI background check. This is to ensure that you are not a convicted sex offender or other type of criminal that could pose a threat to children. There is no central issuing authority for apostilles in Florida, so you will need to contact the appropriate office for the document you need to be apostilled. apostilles can be issued by the Florida Department of State, the circuit court in the county where the document was issued, or the Florida Secretary of State. Any documents that need to be used in a foreign country that are issued by state agencies in the U.S. can be apostilled. The types of documents that are commonly apostilled are: birth certificates, death certificates, marriage certificates, divorce decrees, powers of attorney, and school transcripts.
In order to get an apostille for a FBI background check, you must first get the check itself apostilled. This process can be complicated and time consuming. Once you have the apostille for the FBI background check, you then need to send it to the Florida Secretary of State's office along with a notarized request form. The office will then issue the apostille.
