The RCMP (Canadian) Criminal Record Check Process from overseas
An electronic fingerprint submission to the RCMP is not currently available outside of Canada. In Australia you first need to have your fingerprints embossed by us and then select a RCMP accrediated channeler in Canada as they will submit your RCMP application on your behalf. You should select one of the below agencies as they will email you the appropriate forms that are required for your application. We will then emboss your fingerprints onto the appropriate forms. The fee payable to us is $99.00 inclusive of GST.
If you have not made a booking for this service you can arrange an appointment online which you may do by clicking below:
After you have had your fingerprints taken by Fingerprinting Agency of Australia you will need to take the following steps:
Send your application to an accredited RCMP channeler agency within Canada who will digitize the ink fingerprints taken in Perth and submit them electronically to the RCMP. We already hold the application forms and instructions for the RCMP channeler Safran Morpho Global ID Services, and if you chose to use them to digitize your fingerprints and submit the application to RCMP we can provide all the forms required by them at the time of your visit to our office.
A list of accredited agencies may be viewed below. We do recommend Safran Morpho Global and should you chose to use that Agency in Canada the requirements and documents can be downloaded by Clicking Here. Please note we hold the RCMP fingerprint form. Also note you need two forms of identification for the Agency in Canada, one must be with a photo, we suggest a drivers licence and the data page of your Passport – these must be stamped by a Notary Public. We can guide you to the nearest Notary Public.
