This is a follow up to our previous blog, Digital Fingerprints from Abroad.

From the Royal Canadian Mounted Police (RCMP) website:

“As of July 2014, Canadian Criminal Real Time Identification Services (CCRTIS) will only accept electronic fingerprint submissions for civil purposes." - and this next bit of news - "Electronic fingerprint submission from outside Canada to the RCMP is not currently available.”

So if paper (ink and roll) fingerprints are no longer acceptable and you can’t submit electronic fingerprints because you’re traveling internationally and outside Canada, what do you do? Flying to Canada to get fingerprinted is not an economically sound plan. Now the question becomes: Who ya gonna call?

Impact Pardons Plus - Home to Digital Digits can help. Our Global (Int’l) Canadian Fingerprinting Solutions program is the answer.

As a foreign national or a Canadian citizen abroad or even within more remote areas of Canada where digital fingerprinting may not be available, there are many reasons you might need digital fingerprints sent to the Royal Canadian Mounted Police (RCMP):

  • You may be thinking of immigration to another country;
  • You are applying for permanent residence or citizenship;
  • You may need a visa for work, travel or study abroad;
  • There may be an international marriage or adoption in your future;
  • Your employer has requested a certified background check due to your promotion;
  • You might want to apply for a record suspension (formally pardon);
  • You may need to renew your US waiver;
  • You wish to check your record through a Privacy Act Request;
  • Perhaps you need your security clearance updated.

Fingerprinting for any and all non-criminal concerns can be handled from where you are and sent to Canada for processing through our Global Solutions Kit. Here is a typical order of events:

  1. From the ImpactPardons.ca website, click on ‘Start Your Application’, fill out and send basic contact information (name, DOB, phone, email, address, etc.)
  2. IPP prepares your Global Fingerprinting Kit and emails it to you
  3. Follow the instructions and get paper (ink and roll) fingerprints from your local police
  4. Scan and send the completed package back to IPP where we quality check the information
  5. Once checked, IPP will email you a request to mail or courier original documents to our offices
  6. When IPP receives the original paper documents we transcribe them to digital format. We then make the electronic submission to the RCMP via VPN, usually the day it is received
  7. The RCMP search and put the results in the mail to the return address you have indicated

Timelines: If there is no criminal holding associated with your fingerprints, the last step is usually taken just 3 days after the fingerprints were submitted. If a criminal holding is found, mailing out the results might not happen for three or more months.

If you have questions, we have the answers. Contact Impact Pardons Plus to get started today.
