How to order an FBI report?
The very first step in order to obtain your FBI background check is to contact an FBI Channeler and get fingerprinted.
What is an FBI Channeler?
An FBI-Approved Channeler assists clients to expedite the delivery of Identity History Summary information on behalf of the FBI. FBI-Approved Channelers obtain the fingerprints from the client and submit them electronically with the necessary information to the National Identity History Summary report FBI CJIS Division. Then the results are received electronically with a summary check to the individual. Each FBI-approved Channeler has different ways to process orders; additional fees may apply on top of the FBI fee for requests. Contact each Channeler for processing times and fees.
Please note some important information about who is eligible to request an FBI report: An FBI-approved Channeler may only process requests for U.S. citizens or any lawful permanent resident. A lawful permanent resident is any person residing in the United States with a legal recorded permanent residence for example, “permanent resident alien card” or “green card holder.”
