I'm very pleased with GoodHire. Their website is user friendly, hassle free, reasonably priced, and I got the background result real quick. And it's good getting the email status updates as the check progresses.

We’ll provide details of any criminal records found, or let you know that no records turned up. For Education and Employer Verification, we’ll indicate whether or not our international data provider, SJV, could verifiy the details.

What Else You Need To Know

International background checks often take longer than US-only checks, but won’t delay US-only results. See international background check turnaround times for the countries you need.

International checks aren’t designed for employers trying to hire for subsidiaries in countries outside the US. In-country background check companies should be used instead.

Every country has it's own pre-employment screening requirements. Before you order an international check, be sure to read the application checklist for the background check services you want to order.
