National Background Check, Inc. (NBCI) is one of a few companies in the United States to be recognized by the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) as an approved FBI Channeling Agency. We can obtain expedited FBI Background Checks for non-criminal applicants by submitting fingerprint cards directly to the FBI.

NBCI is also one of a handful of Channelers whose results can be Apostilled, if necessary. Our results are returned from the FBI in a PDF format with the FBI seal in the background. These results are signed by the FBI Section Chief, and are termed "FBI Authenticated Document," by the FBI. Once applicants have their results returned to them from NBCI, they the applicant can then send the authenticated document to the U.S. Department of State in Washington, DC 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 U.S. Department of State in Washington, DC for further action".
