How to Request Your Criminal Records from the United States

The U.S. Embassy does not take fingerprints associated with background checks.  U.S. citizens in Greece who need to obtain their criminal records from the United States should review the Federal Bureau of Investigations (FBI) website at https://www.fbi.gov/services/cjis/identity-history-summary-checks.

The FBI’s site offers three ways to request your records.  If you are in Greece and need to have your fingerprints taken, print the standard fingerprint form (FD-258) and visit the Police Directorate of Criminal Investigations, Fingerprinting Department, at 2-6 Antigonis Street & Leoforos Athinon in Kolonos area, Athens tel. 210-5103017 and follow the instructions on the FBI’s website.
