How long does a background check take?

Modified on Thu, 25 Aug, 2022 at 4:07 PM

Most background checks take less than one business day to complete, but they may take longer depending on the type of search that was requested, geographical location and local governmental operations. 

Many searches will only take a few seconds if the records are available online or if they can be delivered electronically. Other types of searches may be more comprehensive and take a bit longer. Employment and Education verification may require that the institution be contacted for validation.

In order to avoid unnecessary delays, please respond to any requests for additional information that you may receive from one of our agents.
