Q: For those needing F.B.I Background Checks:How long did you have to wait to receive the letter?

Today I just received my F.B.I. Background check from the U.S.A.  I did my fingerprints in Shanghai in late September, and sent the F.B.I. the original card the first week of October.  All in all a little over 4 months for me.  It took two months to receive my state background check.  

It seems every year one needs more paper work.  I don't mind the background checks to keep children safe, but at least be consistent if a province needs them or not.

It wasn't just a letter, it was an envelope with a stamp on it and it had a letter in it. It took 3 months with my mom's mailing help.

Is this for a renewal or a new visa/residence permit?

Under 2 months, from the start of the process to receiving the certified, apostilled documents. For ROK it had to be certified by the US State Department and local notary after being sent by the FBI.

A:Going to HK would be the best bet I reckon, especially if you were looking for a church wedding. Chinese weddings are pretty grim IMO - you go to a barren govt dept with souless officials and navigate red tape so some guy can give you a red stamp and a marriage book. You get expensive pictures taken of you both posing in places you'd never go to in everyday life that is somehow supposed to represent your wedding, then a while later it's off to a restaurant where a game show host kind of guy makes sure it's as tacky as possible while the guests eat as fast as they can so they can leave as soon as they finish eating and gave you money. Hell, I'd go to Thailand or the Philippines and get married in Paradise.   -- Stiggs
