FAQs

International criminal record checks are criminal record checks in countries other than Canada, the United States, the United Kingdom, and Australia. Depending on the country, an international check shows information on arrests and convictions, warrants and outstanding charges, court records, and/or information about national registries like sex offender registries.

Like other background checks or criminal record checks, to run an international background check you need the name, date of birth, and address of the individual you’re looking for information about. However, there may be additional requirements depending on the country. Therefore, it’s best to talk to one of our experts.

The process for the candidate is simple. Here’s how it works:

  1. Select and send the checks you want to run from the global product list.
  2. Your candidate receives a secure, encrypted link via SMS or email asking them to complete the background check online.
  3. The consolidated results are available in your Certn dashboard or ATS.

Turnaround times and costs depend on the country, complexity of the check, availability of the records, and the efficiency and responsiveness of the sources.

The types of records and how far back the records go vary country to country.
