Canadian background checks

Background check on the USC petitioner? If you mean for the Canadian beneficiary, that is not USCIS who does that (unless the Canadian has lived in the US before--is that what you mean?)

Do you mean the background check that the Canadian needs to get for their interview? If so it's done by the Canadian system not US. You go to the police station or RCMP and get a Canada wide background check. If the Canadian has ever been arrested then they need the fingerprints done.


It can very from a few hours to a few days for the police check. The finger prints can take much longer.

Hi there! I mean we are still waiting for our NOA2 and we were told we were waiting for our background checks to come back. I am assuming it's for my fiance(American) ? I was told they also run one on me since I have lived in the states before.
