Generally, if you are married, apply for a green card, or immigrate, you will be required to provide a No Criminal Background Check issued by the FBI of the US Federal Bureau of Investigation if you are preparing to sign a labor contract with the employer or other matters. If you are looking for a job in China and your position is sensitive, you may need a certificate of no crime issued by the local police station and a certificate of no criminal record issued by the US FBI. As for whether you need to apply for a certificate of non-criminal record of the local police station or a certificate of criminal record of the US FBI, please contact the department that requires you to issue a certificate of no criminal record in advance to ensure the document can be used.
