FBI Fingerprints Cover Letter

Discussion in 'Family Class Sponsorship' started by FHRocker, Jun 2, 2010.

  1. So I've been trying to get the cover letter that is provided on the FBI website to load and their link is broken. Anyone know where I may find a usable one?
  2. http://www.fbi.gov/hq/cjisd/cover_letter.pdf try the link I just copied and pasted and it works fine.
  3. Thanks, the link on their actual page just kept throwing errors.
  4. So I know I am replying to an old post.... but the link provided no longer works and I need to download an FBI Cover Letter for fingerprints. I can't find it anywhere on the FBI website!

    I also have another question... my husband is applying for Canadian permanent resident status. We got the fingerprinting done on the card downloaded from the FBI website.

    The "How to obtain a police certificate - United States" page on the CIC website states that we need a cover letter to send along with the fingerprints (although as I said I cant find that cover letter on the FBI website). But the FBI website states that in order to request a record check/police certificate you must also fill out an application. Why doesn't the CIC website mention this application? Is it necessary? I don't want to leave anything out or screw this up because it takes up to 18 weeks to get the police certificate!

    Any help is appreciated, thanks!
  5. Here's the main page that gives instructions:


    A checklist: http://www.fbi.gov/about-us/cjis/background-checks/fbi-identification-record-request-checklist
    Application: https://forms.fbi.gov/departmental-order-website-questionnaire/q384893984839334.pdf
    CC payment form (if needed): http://www.fbi.gov/about-us/cjis/background-checks/credit-card-payment-form
    Fingerprint card form: http://www.fbi.gov/about-us/cjis/background-checks/standard-fingerprint-form-fd-258

    I don't see a cover letter requested or mentioned. But I'm NOTORIOUSLY dumb about all things PR application related.

  6. No need of cover letter. I just mailed the application with fingerprint card and $18.00 money order. In 4 weeks i got the response.
  7. Excellent! So don't bother with the cover letter that apparently doesn't exist. They should change that on the CIC website, it confused me, but then again it doesn't take much. Thanks for your help... hope ours comes in 4 weeks too!
  8. Hi shanmba1174!

    I asked this to someone else on another thread as well. Did you send your fingerprints to the FBI for the check or to one of the Channelers? I'm sponsoring my US husband and we need the police certificate as soon as humanly possible. Thanks!
  9. Send it directly to FBI
  10. Send it directly to FBI. No channelers .
  11. Thanks! Appreciate the quick responses.
