Hi All:

The FBI website says 8 - 10 weeks for processing a clearance request.

How long does it take in reality.  Folks who have requested and received clearance certificates from the FBI, your responses will be greatly appreciated.

Also, has anyone printed the FD-258 from the FBI website, got your fingerprints on this paper and successfully completed the process with the FBI?

Any information on the above will help.

Thanks,

mailed mine on 12th nov. Still awaiting...i'd be happy if i recd it before christmas.

I went to a local fingerprinting agency and had my fingerprints taken by an authorized law enforcement agent on their fingerprint card which was almost identical to the FBI's fingerprint card.

I'll keep you posted. In the meantime...when did you apply for FBI clearence?

Thank you, mtlguy!

I hope to send it in tomorrow.  I printed the FD-258 off of the FBI website and I will go to my local police station.  Now I am not sure if I should use the printed FD-258 or use the local police's fingerprint card.

I hope to get the clearance in the next couple of weeks as we will be leaving the country after that.  Keeping my fingers crossed.

Cheers,

I sent mine last Oct 19 thru fedex, received by fbi on Oct 23.  I called helpdesk but no name in the database yet, means envelop has not been opened yet. Good luck to us!

Guys,

Please clarify:

Do we need FBI clearance to submit to the CIC, once we receive the nomination ?

Or

Just PCC is enough ?

Because, CIC website says the following:

Police certificates from each country or territory where you have lived for six consecutive months or longer since reaching the age of 18.

I guess PCC takes only a week.. please shed some light !

AbuMalik,

If you apply for CIC without the PCC it will slow the process. if you already old expired PCC you can use them for now and send the new ones at later stage. someone has done this on the forum. you can search and check.

I have been tracking and it looks like the application has been received on Nov 23rd. I'll look for the date on the return mail to find out exactly how many working days it took to process. I will keep you all posted. In the meantime....if anyone else has recently got their FBI clearence, pls do mention the timeframe.

Thanks

Hi,

I sent my on the 6th October and they received it by the 14th October. I gave a call and they told me the same thing: "Your name does not appear in the system yet." I have to submit the documents as of 27th January and I do not know when will they be able to send this record?

PK933,

Base on my understanding on the clearance they only require an FBI clearance to pass in the CIC, the office will email you back if they need a state clearance in your behalf. But for me  I will submit the state clearance and FBI at once. I always do shotgun approach and it always true.
