    Default FBI Criminal History Summary/Certificate of Health

    Just want to make sure...
    I don't have a criminal record, and I am in good health and not seeking early departure.
    Do I need to submit these forms?

    Yes.

    But you can hold off until you know you have an interview/placement. The consulate will keep you informed.

    The website still says this "Note: Due to upcoming changes in processing, effective October 12, 2013, the FBI will no longer be accepting return self-addressed stamped envelopes with Departmental Order requests. Envelopes received postmarked after this date will be destroyed. Thank you for your patience as we try to streamline our processes to improve our service to you."

    Yeah, all that means is that when you send in 1) your application for background summary. 2) your fingerprint card. 3) your check (cashier/money order/credit card info) for $18. You will NOT send a SASE as well. They will send the confirmation back to you through an envelope of their own. Go ahead and send all the proper stuff in. That's what I'm doing.

    Not quite yet. Got the app and the fingerprint card. I have the cashier's check but I made it out to the wrong people so gotta get down to the bank and redo it. Then I am sending mine off.

    If you do your FBI paperwork too early, you may have to do it again, as it will no longer be considered recent/valid.

    Again, follow the directions of your consulate. They will tell you when to send off paperwork.

    even if you're applying for early departure?

    From the JET website (bold emphasis is mine):

    5) *FBI Criminal History Summary*
    ONLY if applicable (1 original and 2 copies):
    You must submit a Criminal History Background Check if:


    1. you have ever been arrested, charged and/or convicted of any crime other than a minor traffic offense (ie. speeding or parking ticket), including a juvenile offense. Failure to disclose information related to your criminal history that is found later in the process may result in disqualification. Please note that all successful candidates will be requested to submit an FBI background check after the results are announced. If your record has been cleared, you must still submit the FBI Criminal History Summary to prove this.
      or
    2. you indicate on the application (Question 2c. Early Departure) that they would like to be considered for placement in Japan in April 2014, or between April and July 2014.

    that bold emphasis was extremely helpful.

    I was curious, does JET/Japanese immigration accept FBI background checks obtained through official channelers?

    I recently just received my FBI-BGC. I had mailed it right around the time of the Government Shutdown and it was processed the second week of November and mailed back to me around 2 days ago. I am not applying for Early Departure though. I just wanted to get this taken care of ASAP.

    Will you be within the window should you be accepted? I seem to remember it can't be more than X months old if you do end up being accepted to the program. You should contact your coordinator and make sure.

    The US JET website says it won't be accepted if it's from before August 2013, so in this case it should be fine.

    I had also checked with the US Jet website as well and saw the August 2013 cut-off. I did, however, contact the Embassy to be 100% sure. I can't imagine they'd say no, especially since it specifies August as the earliest cut-off on the website. This waiting period for an interview is gonna be brutal...
