View Full Version : FBI background check deadline question

November 20th, 2012, 06:18
Hello everyone. So here is my problem, I have sent in my FBI background check (because I have got an MIP of Alcohol in the past). Yet the mail hasn't been received by the FBI yet, and mailed it out about a week and a half ago. Meaning it will probably be mailed back to be and have to be re-mailed again.

It says it takes up to 8-12 weeks to receive the results but the deadline is due Jan. 31st. Is there a serious repercussion if it is not received by then?

Thank you.

Hi there,

I was reading the official JET forum and found this post (http://www.jetprogramme.org/forums/viewtopic.php?p=93944#p93944) by Miami Coordinator that addresses your question (from 2011--which had a similar deadline). On the surface, it sounds like it could be grounds for disqualification but a later posting (page 2), it shows the best thing to do is probably to call the Embassy before the due date and explore your options then.
