Background Check

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,

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

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