step-by-step guide to acquire an RCMP Criminal Record Check specifically for immigration purposes. Ensure a smooth and successful verification process

Criminal record check requests in Canada are received and processed by the RCMP. You will need to follow RCMP guidelines in order to get your background checked for immigration.

 

Now, it’s a pretty straightforward process for Canadians who are currently in the country as they can simply walk into an accredited fingerprinting company’s office to start their application. For Canadians in New Zealand, the process involves a few extra steps.

 

Many Canadian police clearance certificate applicants from New Zealand are worried about the process as they don’t know where to start. This is why we have set up a complete guide for people like you who are looking to get an RCMP criminal record check for Immigration.  
 

 The Kiwi Life

The Kiwi Life

The breathtaking landscapes in New Zealand often present a blend of adventure and relaxing retreats. This is what draws most Canadians to this country abundant in natural wonders.  

 

The Kiwi outdoor lifestyle, ranging from skiing and hiking to sailing and surfing matches perfectly with the Canadian love for the great outdoors. Since the Kiwi culture finds its roots in inclusivity and diversity, Canadians moving here don’t feel alone or homesick in a new country. Many Canadians who have moved here find the Kiwis to be a kindred spirit with the same warm-heartedness that they are used to experiencing back home. 
 

What is The RCMP Criminal Record Check Processing Time??

What is The RCMP Criminal Record Check Processing Time??

The RCMP-certified criminal record check processing time varies depending on your background history and submission method. For normal checks, where no criminal record is found, the RCMP usually generates the result within 72 hours. However, it can take them 1 to 4 months to send a result if a criminal record is found on your provided details. This is because the record is verified and compiled across all relevant jurisdictions according to the SOP.

 

The way you fill out your application also dictates processing times. You don’t need to worry about delays if all parts of your request are completed correctly. However, in case of errors, you can expect significantly longer waiting times.

 

At Globeia, we have often seen Canadian PCC applicants submit incomplete forms and incorrectly taken fingerprint impressions. This is why we assist all of our clients in completing their application forms from day 1. 
 

How Do I Fulfill The RCMP Police Check Requirement for New Zealand?

How Do I Fulfill The RCMP Police Check Requirement for New Zealand?

As direct fingerprint submissions from New Zealand aren’t accepted, we will help you fulfil this guideline by using our hi-tech digitization equipment. You can get your fingerprint forms filled at a facility near you and mail a physical copy to our office in Ontario.

 

We will send you a C-216 fingerprinting form for online background checks from Canada. The digitization and RCMP submission process starts after we have received a completed copy of the form, along with the rest of your details.

 

We will take care of all the legwork for you so that you can complete your immigration process on time. A Globeia representative will be available to help you with any aspect of your request, with up-to-date tips and procedural guidelines.  

 

Conclusion

As an RCMP-accredited fingerprinting company covering Vancouver, Toronto, Quebec, Calgary, Scarborough, Hamilton, Brampton, and other cities, we ensure the shortest possible police clearance certificate times. This is achieved by generating a digital copy of your fingerprint forms as soon as we receive them in the mail. 
 

 

We also submit completed applications to the RCMP on the same day so that processing can start ASAP. You can scroll down to the RCMP clearance certificate contact form for New Zealand to get in touch.
