This background check is a summary of an individual’s criminal history or activity. Information used in the report is obtained through federal, state, and local law enforcement agencies. It should be noted that while any company can require a background check as a condition of potential employment, only you can request a copy of your criminal history summary from the FBI.
There are several reasons you might need a background check...travel visas, immigration, adoption, personal review for inaccuracies, court related matters, and employment.
If you are a NON US Citizen or NON US Resident, you need to select the FBI Background Check - EDO!
Applies to individuals who are US Citizens and Legal Permanent Residents.
