Hive Digital apostilles and authenticates  thousands of FBI background checks and diploma’s every year. We expedite the process by hand-carrying every document to the US Department of State where an apostille or authentication is requested in person. We can obtain the certification within 4 business days from the day that we receive your order.  The FBI or FBI Channeler (hopefully Hive) will either email you your background check in a PDF format or will mail the background check to your home. If you receive your background check by email please be sure to download and save the pdf to your computer first.  You can then upload the pdf to our order form to be apostilled or authenticated.   If you receive your background check by mail, you will need to mail this document to our office for processing. We charge a flat fee of $65.00 per document, this includes domestic USPS first class return shipping with tracking. Faster domestic and international shipping is available.
