Police Report France to Usa (Need canada police report)

Aloha Everyone,

Our Application was received on July 5th, It got approved on the 7th of September and on the 23rd of September the NVC received it and is being sent to Paris Embassy woohooo!!!

My quesiton is though: My fiance is in France and we need to get her police record from Canada because she lived and work there longer the 6 months last year. Does anyone know if we can just conduct name-based criminal record check to get the report or do we need to get it accredited with doing it the fingerprint way. She has no criminal record in Canada while she was there.

Any and all help will be great.

Thank You!

I have been through that, I lived in Canada in 2004-2005 and I had to get the police record from Canada for my k1, so after doing some research I found the website XL-ID solutions, they are accredited by the RCMP, you need to get your fingerprints taken in a local police office and send it to them in the format they have.

The process cost for me was $220 USD (Fingerprinting By Mail 120.00, Scan & Email 25.00, Handling and Courier 75.00). the scan and email is optional and I did it for my peace of mind so I had in my email before I got the physical document.

I recommend this website, it was quick and efficient. I hope this can be helpful for you.

These are the instructions they sent me:

Instructions

1 - Get your fingerprints taken at your local police station

If you currently are in CANADA

  • Contact your nearest police station, which offers fingerprinting services, and get your fingerprints on RCMP’s C-216c form (they have the form).

If you currently are in USA

  • Contact your nearest police station, which offers fingerprinting services, and get your fingerprints on FBI’s FD-258 form (they have the form).

If you currently are in AUSTRALIA

  • Contact your nearest police station, which offers fingerprinting services, get your fingerprints taken electronically and ask for a printed copy on the Australian form.

If you currently are in any OTHER country

  • Download and print XL-ID Solutions XL-216c form on A4 or letter size. Once printed correctly, first fingerprint box edge to last fingerprint box edge should be approximatively 20.32 cm wide (8 inches).
  • Contact the nearest police force, which offers fingerprinting services (some countries also have private accredited fingerprinting agency).
  • Insist on getting rolled and flat impressions of all your fingers, using black ink. Some agencies use livescan device and produce certified paper copies. That's ok.
  • Make sure the Official Agent taking your fingerprints signs the form in the appropriate section. Also, the Fingerprinting Agency/Department section must be filled indicating the name and address of the Police Station/Agency. If you are in JAPAN, Official Agent do not have to sign the form.
  • If your fingerprints are not on XL-216c / C-216c / FD-258 / Australian form (or printed incorrectly), an additional processing fee will apply.

2 - Send us your documents

Make sure your mailing contains the following documents:

  • The original XL-216c, C-216c, FD-258 or Australian fingerprint form (fingerprints taken with black ink).
  • If you have not uploaded them on our web form: Color copy of two (2) different proofs of identification with picture (such as passport, driver’s licence, Medicare card). They can be from different countries.
  • If you have not uploaded it on our web form: 1 passport type colour picture (3 to 5cm x 3 to 5cm / 1 to 2in x 1 to 2in) with your name on the back.
  • If you are applying for Canadian citizenship (not Permanent Residency):
    Return address MUST be the name and address of the Agency handling your case, such as Canadian Immigration Center, Embassy, Consulate or High Commission. You can include a copy of Canadian IP-40 form if you have it.
  • Please indicate your order number generated by the system once your application is completed.
  • Important: Incomplete applications will not be processed and will not be returned to sender. However, if you forgot to include your picture or your copy, if can email them to Fingerprints@XL-ID.com
  • Send your documents to the following address (preferably using express delivery service):

XL-ID Solutions inc.
Fingerprinting Department
1550 Beaulac Street
Saint-Laurent (Montreal), Quebec
Canada, H4R 1W8

3 - Upon reception of your documents

  • We convert your fingerprints into an electronic transaction (which RCMP handles much faster) and submit your request to RCMP for processing.
  • Our system will automatically send you a confirmation email.
  • Once your documents have been sent to the RCMP, we must wait for your certificate.
    We do not have any control over the RCMP processing time
    : RCMP Processing Time
  • Approximate wait times for fingerprint submissions received by the RCMP when there is no match to an RCMP fingerprint holding is 3 to 7 business days.
  • However, when there is a match to a criminal record or when manual processing is required, processing time can take up to or exceed 120 days.

4 - Upon reception of your certificate

  • Your original RCMP certificate and the invoice will be couriered to the address provided on your application (we need to keep all other documents).
  • You will receive a confirmation from the Express Messenger Service Company handling your envelope, with a tacking number.

Odd, I didn't get fingerprinted at all for my PIC at a Calgary Police Station. I think fingerprints are only required if you have a history? It took just under a month and $35 to get that done, but I'm also living in Canada at the moment.

Nope, I didn't have a criminal history. It's different if you are actually present in Canada at the moment, you just need to go to a police station. But if you are anywhere else you need to do it through a RCMP accredited company, there are some available, I am just sharing my experience with the one I used in November 2015.
