Background Check



The Inspection Service criminal background check is conducted using United States information resources only (e.g., FBI

fingerprint check, state and county checks). A criminal background check involves a 5-year inquiry for any location where

the individual has resided, worked or gone to school within the United States or its territories. As a result of this limitation,

the criminal background checks of individuals who have not resided in the United States or its territories for the preceding

5-years may not be considered complete. The Inspection Service may be able to process inquiries for U.S. Citizens only,

but only if their time spent out of the country was spent as: a trailing spouse or dependent of someone working for the U.S.

government (military or civilian), a missionary, a student attending school in a foreign country, a Peace Corps participant, or

as an employee of a U.S.-based employer/company. If the Inspection Service is unable to perform a complete background

check because of residency outside the United States, such individuals will be ineligible for Postal employment.
