Complete Application Forms
All forms can be downloaded and completed off-line using the Forms menu.
The FBI Criminal Report Request and Mailing Checklist forms are required with all orders. Payment can be made using cashier's check, money order or credit card. When paying by credit card, be sure to include the Credit Card Authorization form.
If you would like your FBI Criminal Report delivered directly to your attorney, you must include the Attorney Release form, printed on the attorney's letterhead.
Please be aware of the rules and regulations governing how criminal history information may be requested and utilized. As a requirement of ordering your report, please read our FAQ.
Have Fingerprints Taken
Most local law enforcement agencies – police, sheriff offices and campus security departments – will "roll" your fingerprints for a small fee. Our list of over 14,000 locations will help you locate a fingerprinting site nearby.
If turnaround time on your order is critical, consider sending two fingerprint cards. If the first fingerprint card is rejected by the FBI because of poor fingerprint quality, we can quickly submit the prints from the second card, saving valuable time. You will be contacted for authorization before the second set of prints are submitted to the FBI. Each submission to the FBI will incur the standard report fee.
Be sure your prints are taken using an FBI approved card such, as the standard FBI Fingerprint Form (FD-258).
A large envelope and standard US Mail are all that's needed to send your application forms and fingerprints to My FBI Report. Do not fold the fingerprint card(s).
For faster turnaround time, use USPS Priority Mail or an overnight delivery service when submitting your order.
Mail your completed forms and fingerprints to:

Receive FBI Criminal Report
Following FBI guidelines, your FBI Criminal Report will be printed on copy-proof paper to prevent changes or modifications. One printed copy of your personal criminal history report is included with each order. For a small fee, additional copies can be requested when you place your order.
Important Note: FBI security standards require that we purge all FBI Criminal Report information after it has been delivered to the applicant. Because of these guidelines, additional copies of an old report cannot be purchased. However, you can submit new fingerprints at any time.
You should receive your FBI Criminal Record report within 5-7 business days when using standard shipping – USPS First Class Mail.
Delivery time can be shortened to 2-3 business days with USPS Priority Mail, or overnight by using FedEx. Additional fees apply for premium shipping.
Estimated delivery times are from the day your application and fingerprint card(s) are received and processed by My FBI Report. Orders are normally processed the day they are received; however, an incomplete application or missing information will delay processing. If you have not received your results within 21 days of your request, please contact our office.
