Certificate of no crime in the United States

U.S. citizens in China or Chinese citizens who have long resided in the United States will be required by government departments to provide a certificate of no criminal record in the United States due to work, immigration, visa, enrollment and other reasons. When U.S. citizens are engaged in commercial activities, work in companies or apply for long-term residency in China, domestic government departments (usually the Foreign Experts Bureau, the exit entry administration center of the Public Security Bureau) will require the applicant to provide a certificate of no criminal record in the United States and a consular confirmation from the Chinese Embassy in the United States.

If Chinese citizens have stayed in the United States for more than 6 months, when applying for a third country visa or immigration (Britain, Canada, Australia, New Zealand and other countries), relevant institutions will require a certificate of no crime during their stay in the United States.

Which departments can issue a certificate of no criminal record in the United States?

There are two forms of certificate of no criminal record in the United States. The specific type of certificate of no criminal record that needs to be handled needs to be selected according to the actual requirements of government departments in various countries:

1. Certificate of no criminal record in the United States issued by the Federal Bureau of investigation.

2. Certificate of no criminal record issued by the local police station.

The former is to search the databases of local cities, counties and states, while the latter is to search the database of FBI (only federal crimes can be recorded). If it is a job search, work, etc., it is OK to issue a certificate from the local police station, but if it involves immigration or studying in a third country, it is necessary to issue an FBI certificate of no criminal record.
