CIO and CHC will look for FBI record thats the PCC of USA (in other word).
I never heard that any other format of PCC issued in local police station?
Yes they will issue you local NY State DOJ certificate (department of justice if you stay morethan 6months in that state), all states of the USA have this same facility, your California state also have live finger scan for DOJ in some police station even private agencies also do the same for DOJ, & DOJ certificate will issued from Sacramento DOJ for California state.
Some time with old applications CIO and CHC asked for both FBI and State DOJ. Remember State DOJ will also do using live finger print, but FBI record certificate must required ink finger print.
there is no other PCC's exist for immigration related, even FBI and state DOJ certificates also accepted for some local jobs in the USA which rewuired criminal history and Drugs background check in the USA.
so don't be confused just get FBI record for canada immigration, and yes you have to mentioned the reason for FBI finger print that why you applied for FBI record, I wrote Canada immigration.
bhai mare ek sawal chhe.
I am living in Los Angeles and apply for PCC in FBI last month. It will take time.
My friend from NY told me that why you need to wait for FBI PCC? He said his friend got PCC from NY Police department in one day for canada PR purpose.
So it is possible to get PCC from Los Angeles Police Department and put on my PR file then waiting for FBI to process?
Any body has any knowledge about it.
