View Full Version : FBI background check question

December 27th, 2012, 18:31
Hi all, I just received my FBI background check in the mail. I was wondering, am I suppose to send it in without photocopying it, meaning without opening it? Or am I suppose to make photo copies of it and send in 3 of them?

Unless the rules have changed you're not supposed to open it! You can check with your consulate (and the directions, it should be written there) but I think you should be sending it as is.

The US website does say to send "1 original and 2 copies" though - their instruction should be the correct one. Miami_coordinator on Official has also said "Yes, you are supposed to open it, make 2 photocopies, and send those along with the original to the JET Program office in DC" (http://www.jetprogramme.org/forums/viewtopic.php?f=26&t=12241&sid=87b970038ca7b46dde38a71a660a98b3&start=345#p129004) regarding the FBI check.
