Your Questions, Answered

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

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.

Certn in North America and its subsidiaries in the United Kingdom (Credence Background Screening) and Australia (InterCheck) have direct access to provincial, state, and county criminal databases. Certn is in the business of supporting you wherever you hire. International criminal record checks are criminal record checks in a country other than Canada, the United States, the United Kingdom, Australia, or New Zealand. International criminal record checks are available worldwide.

The turnaround time for international background checks varies depending on factors such as the country in question, the complexity of the check, the availability of the records, and the efficiency and responsiveness of the agencies or sources. However, you can speed up the process using a platform like Certn.
