For the United States of America records issued by the F.B.I. or State Police background checks are valid.
Local Police background checks will not be accepted.
Also remember that an apostille certification is required for Spain.
-----> Does the FBI provide apostilles*?
(*An apostille is a certification that a document that has been “legalized” or “authenticated” by the issuing agency through a process in which various seals are placed on the document.)
Yes. The CJIS Division will authenticate U.S. Department of Justice Order 556-73 fingerprint search results for international requests by placing the FBI seal and the signature of a division official on the results if requested at the time of submission.
Documents prepared in this way may then be sent to the U.S. Department of State by the requester to obtain an apostille if necessary.
This procedure became effective on January 25, 2010 and will apply only to documents finalized after that date.
Requests to authenticate previously processed results will not be accepted.
This procedure replaces the letter formerly provided by the CJIS Division that indicated the service was not provided. The apostille service is not provided to individuals requesting search results for Canadian immigration, as it is not required for this purpose.
