International Criminal Records Search
- Updated on 18 Nov 2020
This screening is intended to search international criminal records of candidates who currently reside outside of the United States in one of the countries on our International Candidate Coverage List. Each of the countries that can be searched has its own application checklist detailing required information, forms and turnaround times. For each international candidate, the international records will be searched in that candidate's current country of residence only. For example, one cannot search for criminal records in France if a candidate currently lives in the United Kingdom.
For candidates who currently reside in the United States, please view our help article on International Criminal Records Search for U.S. residents.
For current residents of Canada, please view our article on RCMP Checks.
The GoodHire Customer Support and Customer Success teams can help you get enabled with checks for candidates in non U.S. countries. Once your account is set up for a specific country, you'll be able to order background checks for candidates living in that country.
Once your account is enabled for non-U.S. checks, whenever you place a new background check order you will first select the candidate's country of residence. You can then select your pre-configured bundle or package of choice, and/or any individual international screens before checking out.
All International Criminal Records Search results will indicate whether or not the candidate has any existing international records. However, employers will need to click the attached report to view full details.
Each country can require different additional form submissions, as well as extra forms of identification. For individual country requirements and turnaround times, please see the required forms. If a country is listed, but not linked, a GoodHire Verifications Specialist can look up which documents are needed for you.
