Criminal Background Checks


Federal Police Check Code 28:

Please note that this is a different police check than the one you need for your Working Holiday Visa.


We highly recommend going to Mexico City to get your criminal background check — it would only take 15 minutes and it's free. The address in Mexico City is: Calz. de Tlalpan 1913-1929, Parque San Andres, 04040 Ciudad de Mexico, CDMX.

However, if you are from a different Mexican state far from the capital, you can get your police check at an office called "Procuraduria General de Justicia" but this may take 2 to 10 days to delivery and it will cost around 75 to 250 Mexican pesos.

Requirements: Name, Date of Birth, Address, Release Form, CURP # or Passport #, and Mother's Maiden Name and two color photos This search is conducted through a nationwide federal criminal repository consisting of Superior Tribunal Justice Courts and Courts of First Instance. Information returned will include all reportable criminal record convictions.
