I'm just now trying to get an appointment scheduled with the state of Texas thru their channeler (seems to be the only option for state check). Apparently the channeler also does the FBI submission. Does anyone know if immi is accepting the reports thru the channeler? It's Morphotrust, if that helps. Thanks!

The Australian Embassy in DC says not to use a channeler for the FBI check.

"► Police checks from channelers for FBI police checks are NOT acceptable for Australian immigration purposes. Please consult the FBI website for information on obtaining a clearance directly form the FBI."

I'm not sure how they feel about using one for the state check though.

Thanks! I've scheduled for a card and will send it in myself for the FBI check.
So far I haven't been able to find anything other than the channeler for the state check. They don't list any other options for doing it. (not really worried as I haven't even had a ticket anywhere!)

Hi guys,

Just wanted to give a heads up that I received my US FBI letter last Monday. So just over 6 weeks from posting from Sydney and getting a reply! Way quicker than I was expecting!!

I had sent in two requests, one for me and one for my girlfriend and we both got letters the same day.

Confirmation of no criminal activity

Cheers!

Hi esuwr,

Congratulations. I am still waiting on mine. Could you please let me know how long the FBI took to debit the money from the time they received your finger prints? Also from the time they take the money out how long did it take for you to receive the letter? I sent mine out on June 7th they have received it on Jun 16th but still no money has been taken from my account so just wanted to know how long they took for you...thanks!

Embassy says up to 12 weeks but I got mine back in 4 weeks. Depends on how backed up they are.

I am about to do my FBI prints. Did you print the form from the FBI website for your prints (so it is just on office paper) or did you guys have a fingerprint card?
If so where did you get this card?

Did you just go to a police station for them? I am here in Sydney does anyone know where to have them done? Thanks heaps!

Hey Australi sorry for the late response.

I'm not sure about how it's done in AUS but here in Virginia I had to go to the State police station and they took my fingerprints on fingerprint cards and I mailed them off with some other ID docs to the FBI. I'm sure it would be something similar to that over in Sydney at a police station or something.

Best of luck to you and I'll keep you posted should I found out something.
