Reliability Can Oversee Your
Canadian Fingerprint-Based Record Check from Saudi Arabia

Fingerprinting for Canadian Background Checks for People Living in Saudi Arabia

Do you live in Saudi Arabia (Saudi national, Canadian citizen or Saudi resident of other nationality) and need fingerprinting for a Canadian criminal record check? You may have been asked to undergo this process recently, perhaps for a visa or immigration application, or in the hiring process for a new job in Saudi or elsewhere. Whatever the case may be, if you’ve lived or spent time in Canada, you’ll need the RCMP Certified Criminal Record Check to show you have a clean record in Canada.

The RCMP requires that you get fingerprinted in Saudi Arabia and then submit the application overseas to Canada for a record check. They have stringent requirements, to which not adhering can result in rejection and delays (or worse) in your application for work, visa, etc. That’s why people in Saudi and across the globe have entrusted Reliability Screening with their Canadian fingerprint-based criminal record check. We have years of experience handling these with accuracy, privacy and excellent service.

Types of Background Checks

In Canada, many background checks are available for a wide variety of purposes. It is helpful to understand the differences between these background checks and it is essential to know which background check you require.

The RCMP Criminal Record Check is just one of many types of record checks available. It is the most widely accepted document for background screening purposes. This is an applicant’s only option for many requirements within Canada, and almost all foreign requirements such as visas, immigration, adoption, etc. This is the most common record check we receive here at Reliability Screening, although it’s possible you may need a different check.

The CPIC Record Check is the fastest check and requires the least amount of initial information. Needing only an applicant’s name and date of birth, this background check does not need fingerprinting in order to receive results.

The Vulnerable Sector Check is typically needed as a background check for positions of power or authority. Specifically, this check is designed to see whether the individual in question has a record of sexual offences. At Reliability Screening, this background check is not a service we provide.

Frequently Asked Questions

No, you don’t! Whether you are a Canadian Citizen, a current or a former Canadian resident who is currently in the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia, you can get your fingerprints taken at your nearest police station and criminal record check processed by Reliability Screening without ever leaving the country. It is advisable to have us take care of this since if you leave the country, and have no remaining visits left on your current visa, you will have to go through the entire visa application process again which could delay your return to the KSA for weeks or even months.

You can’t use this fingerprint for your RCMP criminal background check. The Kingdom of Saudi Arabia scans your fingerprint for biometric identification purposes whenever you enter or leave the country.

Reliability Screening requires a physical document with rolled fingerprints for all ten fingers for a certified criminal background check which can be obtained from any police station in Saudi Arabia.

You will need to send a copy of government issued photo identification such as a passport. We will also need the reason you are seeking a certified criminal record check and supporting documents to prove your reasoning.

When getting fingerprints taken, it is important to also ensure the document includes the name and address of the police agency where you got them done. Also make sure the document includes the name and signature of the official who took the fingerprints.

Before submitting your application to the CRRTIS, Reliability Screening will review the entire application with you to ensure all necessary information is included. That way, your criminal record check won’t be delayed by having to resubmit the application and pay subsequent application fees.

There is no set expiry date on any international police check. That being said, any criminal record check, whether it is certified or not, only shows your record at a single point in time. Organizations that require an international police check, be it for work, residency, citizenship or otherwise will have different requirements for how recent the police check needs to be. It is important to check with the organization that requires the check to find out how recent they require it to be.

Neither the Canadian Embassy nor Canadian Consulates provide criminal background checks. They also are not able to give any information or updates about a criminal background check. If you require a Canadian criminal background check while residing in the KSA, you must use an accredited company such as Reliability Screening.

CCRTIS, or the Canadian Criminal Real time Identification Services is the part of the RCMP which maintains the national database of criminal records in Canada. If you are applying for a certified criminal record check, your fingerprints and information will be submitted to CCRTIS. Reliability Screening is CCRTIS Accredited by the RCMP to submit electronic fingerprints in support of criminal record checks.
