Background Check

The Inspection Service criminal background check is conducted using United States information resources only (e.g., FBI

fingerprint check, state and county checks). A criminal background check involves a 5-year inquiry for any location where

the individual has resided, worked or gone to school within the United States or its territories. As a result of this limitation,

the criminal background checks of individuals who have not resided in the United States or its territories for the preceding

5-years may not be considered complete. The Inspection Service may be able to process inquiries for U.S. Citizens only,
