Criminal background Check options for Americans

Digital Fingerprinting for FBI Background Checks

FBI background checks are the gold standard for a clean record check. It’s expected that China will be moving to a model where Americans will be required to provide this background check in future, as its the most comprehensive and will uncover any potential hiring risks and liabilities of the candidate being hired. Most international schools and some specific cities in China have moved to require this federal check over local and/or state checks in 2019.
