Digital fingerprints for offshore applicants

The RCMP will only accept electronic fingerprint submissions for civil purposes. CVIY can now scan your ink and roll fingerprints and create an electronic file which we can submit to the RCMP for processing. This reduces the processing time for a “no record found” search from up to six months to as little as seven to ten business days with results being mailed to the applicant anywhere in the world in as little as a week.

This service benefits clients needing an RCMP certified background check that live in an area that does not have digital fingerprinting services as well as clients currently living outside Canada.

There are comprehensive and easy to follow instructions available, particularly for offshore clients.

For further questions, please email us.

What to bring:

2 pieces of identification, both government-issued and 1 must include a photo and specimen signature.
