Yikes, a whole month just to process the check??? Not good...
no this is quite normal actually. First they receive your docs and put them in line. Then they start to process your fingerprint cards, at this point they process your payment. I used a credit card. In 2 - 3 weeks they should be finished. Yes it does take a while but is expected.
I thought the FBI stuff for Americans had been pushed back to 2012.Then again, I've been confused about this whole thing from the start.
Don't believe that. I called immigration and they are gung-ho on it started next year. If you or anyone else is thinking of getting a job here ...start your FBI check now. Once you get it in the mail and the apostille it will last 6 months. Go the safe-way ;)
I actually sent in my request to the FBI around the same time you did, and they processed the payment just recently as well. So like you, my fingers are crossed the document arrives sometime this month. Then I can finally forward it to the California Secretary of State to get it apostilled. I hope I can get this all done by January.
Dave ... I think you can't send it to the California Sec. of State. I believe it has to go to Virginia or somewhere. This would be the major Sec. of State. Did you request the FBI seal? If so I believe when you get it all back the FBI will have a letter giving you instructions for the Apostille.Check on this...as the California Sec. of State told me they won't Apostille an FBI Doc..since it is out of state. hmmm
Will the FBI seal be placed even without a request? I didn't request for the seal and I'm leaving to South Korea in a week.
Barbara... sorry no! You can still get it on there if you email them... go to the FBI site..I think it is there..
