We are here to assist you to request your background check from the United States or Canada. These are needed to process Dominican visa applications at a Dominican consulate or residency applications at the Immigration government office in Santo Domingo.

Our office will take you to an approved fingerprinting facility in the Santo Domingo area, assist you to fill out the request forms and ship these to the corresponding FBI (Federal Bureau of Investigation) or RCMP (Royal Canadian Mounted Police) processing facilities for the background check.

These in turn will be shipped to an address of your choice either in the US/Canada or the Dominican Republic. Once you receive it you must apostille it (for the US) or legalize it (for Canada). Our office can assist you with this process as well if needed.


  • US $100 for fingerprinting plus cost of FBI or RCMP plus shipping
