Anyone here applied for US police certificate (FBI EDO) while living in Canada.
Wanting to know the same too
I’ll be applying in this week from Canada. It’s a straightforward process, we need to follow the steps in https://www.edo.cjis.gov/ and take the fingerprints in the FD-258 form, send it to the address mentioned.
I’ll be taking my fingerprints digitally with a Fingerprint Agency. This is to avoid delays due to illegible manual prints.
Do you have any specific queries?
Thanks @Jose for your response. Couple of questions :
Where are you getting the fingerprints done? Please share your feedback too. I am also planning to get it this week.
Are you going to use it for PR application or for citizenship application?
- I’m planning to get it in Kitchener Fast Fingerprinting.
- For PR purpose.
Not related to the topic but how long is this valid?
I’m asking because I don’t anticipate ITA anytime soon, so is it something to do now or after the ITA?
I don’t have an ITA as well. Expecting it as soon as they start the draws in July. FBI usually sends it in a week or two. So, you can get it once you receive ITA too. Validity is 1 year I believe.
Indian PCC takes 2-3 months now. So we applied with BLS already. It’s valid for one year too. So if you’re expecting ITA in a few months, get the Indian PCC done.
@usa2can for Canada pr, I just ordered these FD-258 cards (and the inkpad) from Amazon and did it at home
It’s very convenient if you know/remember how to roll your fingers in those sections correctly.
