How to submit an order
- Gather your documents and prepare them for shipping. FBI Criminal Background Checks can only be uploaded to the order form if you received a digital copy from an FBI channeler or the FBI. Scans/photocopies are not accepted. If you only received a copy through the mail then we will need that copy mailed to our office
- Scan a high quality color of your passport. We need both the photo page of your passport as well as the signature page. Must be clear scans. If the scan isn’t legible, the Chinese Embassy will reject the authentication application.
