All about Immigration Background Checks
 

Keywords: immigration, migrating, background back, application, security, applicant, information
 

A lot of people coming from different countries and walking different walks of life travels and some even consider migrating to another country where they believe would provide them with greener pastures. In people intent to migrate, they have to undergo an Immigration Background Check, and as we would notice People coming from Asia, Africa and even Europe are drawn to the country we call the land of the free, the US.

Applications for US immigration need to have and pass a proper immigration background check. And once an individual passes this background check, it will establish the persons’ residence eligibility. Background checks that will be used for immigration are performed by the agency in-charge of the process. For those applying for US migration, the back ground check is with the agency of the U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services or the USCIS which is the federal agency handling the checks on applicants for immigration visa processing. This immigration background check will be done only by the USCIS without any bias on the country of origin, religious issues or ethnicity to ensure that they provide only reliable results.

But currently, due to the 9/11 attack, the US has started increasing their immigration background checks to ensure the safety and level down the possibility of the country experiencing another terror attack. Immigration background checks are now conducted for security purposes and so a large number of applicants are routinely inspected and many passed the test without any incidences. Yet many advocates of the USCIS procedure are concerned with the new time-consuming procedure as it takes a long time because of the three-tiered approach being used on background checking. This process would mean a year or more of waiting for an applicant before he or she gets visa approval.

Immigration background check involves three different processes in investigation techniques such as the Interagency Border Inspections System or the IBIS Name Check, FBI fingerprint check and the FBI name check. Applicants should pass these three test before the interview schedule is given. If any of the checks gets a negative result after investigations are made, the immigration process will be a failure.

The first process of the immigration background check is done by the IBIS, which is a multi-agency, centralized system acquiring information for different sources to instantly know whether an applicant is qualified or if more background checking is needed. Fingerprint checks from the FBI usually take about twenty four to forty eight hours, and if criminal records comes up, an adjudicator of the USCIS will determine if the possibility of continuing or not continuing the investigation.

If records or violation shows ineligibility for award of green card for the applicants, the investigation will be discontinued as recommended. The final procedure that applicants must go through is the name check of the FBI. This takes only about 14 days or longer if there is a need for further resolution or some results needs further investigation. When applicants pass all these checks, they will have a greater chance of getting into the US to live or work.
