Yes I received it after Govt resumed..but mine was received by FBI before Govt Shutdown..12th Sep

and I received on 25 Oct..on US Address..

They take 4 weeks but then where to send the results..it will add more time if outside US..if sending by normal post.

how do you know they received it? just based on when your credit card is charged?

No, when they charge credit card it means it almost done and they will send a mail within a week now it depends where they are sending, will vary time after they send for posting. Usually the send mail within 3 days after credit card charged. Mine was received within a week after CC charged at US address.

How we know when is Initial application is received depends on courier you selected to send, i mean one can know the status by tracking.

- There are private agencies which do the FBI Fingerprints. Google them up at your current location.
- Do a search in the forum based on your location for FBI fingerprints.

Truth labs is the agency I used. Check if they are there in your town
