Submit printed copy of FBI certificate downloaded from email for Canada Immigration

Hi Anil,
This is Kris. Thank you for providing detailed explanation on the steps. I followed the above instructions (Option 1) and I was able to download the soft copy of my clearance certificate from FBI site.

However, though I had requested for a hardcopy, I did not receive it yet. If it takes longer is there a way to follow up?

Is it okay if I submit the printed copy that I downloaded from FBI certificate for Canada Immigration ? or do they need the Original itself ? Could you please clarify ?

The FBI PDF file is valid for submission to any immigration authority. In your case, you can use it for Canada.
No need to wait for physical copy.

Physical should have arrived by now in mail though. I am guessing the delay may be due to holiday season.

Okay great. Thank you.
