Predicting RCMP check processing times becomes tricky when the applicant is not inside Canada. While the RCMP will generate the results within 72 hours in most cases, fingerprint digitisation and application submission might add a few more days to the total time.
You should give your foreign employer a time frame of 1-2 weeks if you are getting your Criminal record check done for employment purposes. Delays could come in the form of mailing issues, incomplete details, and incorrect fingerprinting.
At Globeia, we keep the processing times to a minimum by checking your RCMP check request form for any missing or incorrect details. We also guide our clients on the fingerprinting best practices to ensure that their fingerprints are accepted by the RCMP.
The RCMP takes at least 30 days to share background check results if a criminal activity record is found. Globeia will send you regular updates in that case and mail the certificate to your address as soon as it is ready.
You have been asked by your country of residence to produce a criminal record background check from Canada. Whether it be for employment, immigration, visa application, admission to an institute, or any other official purpose, you are now stuck with finding a solution as the RCMP does not directly accept fingerprint submissions sent from other countries.
This is where Globeia comes in to help! We noticed that many people like you were struggling to get their police clearance certificate from Canada. To solve this problem, we received accreditation from the RCMP to accept your fingerprints internationally
