Our international services address applicants who live or have lived outside of the United States. This is a vital process for companies hiring international talent or plan to expand overseas. Our service, offered in over 200 countries and territories, verifies information critical to building and maintaining a solid, qualified global workforce.

Critical Research has built strong relationships with numerous government entities around the globe to give you the most accurate, up-to-date information regarding education and employment history, passport validations, and criminal history. Our searches may also include negative media scans, terrorism watchlists, and sanction searches, among others. Levels of background checks are available based on your industry and compliance needs.

Due to the varying degrees with which each country operates and handles documentation, turnaround times vary by country, province, or territory searched.
