Non Criminal Authentication document
« on: July 13, 2017, 02:08:43 AM »
Hi.  New to me this year is a request from my uni to obtain a certified, non-criminal background check.  They are confused at to actually how to do this and I'm in the U.S. trying to keep my visits to the Chicago Consulate to a minimum.

My question is, what document do I need to show the Consulate so that they will certify my background check?  I did a paid ($7) background check from my State and received an official-looking document that has all the pertinent information on it.  However, there is no infamous red stamp of any kind on it.  Not wanting to waste a trip, do you think I should have this notarized by the police before presenting it to the Consulate?  That seems crazy, yet very Chinese.

Any thoughts.

I also have to present my diploma to the Consulate and ask for a certified document that should look like the attachment.  I haven't had to do this before either, but maybe someone in the group has.

Thanks for any help.

Regards,

The last criminal check I provided in China was a state highway department patrol level check that was notarized by the issuing agency.  This was in 2014/15 for Jiangsu Province.

I used an FBI background check, authenticated (not Apostilled - China's not a member of the "let's use a silly word like apostille club") by the US State Department and then red rubber stamped by the Chinese embassy.  Check my Green Card thread for more details.
