Im sorry if Im beating and already beat topic here, couldn't find anything on the forum and Im looking for some guidance from y'all.

My new foreign employer requires a license verification of my FAA ATP from the FAA. I've emailed them about a week ago, no response, emailed couple of days ago again, no response.

For comparison the license incident/accident letter from the FAA was sent to me in a couple of hours after my request.

Thank you.

Airmen Certification ? Verify the Authenticity of a Foreign License, Rating, and Medical Certification (http://www.faa.gov/licenses_certificates/airmen_certification/foreign_license_verification/)

You may have to go through your country's aviation authority and follow a process similar to the above link.

I have an ATP from FAA, and it needs to be verified by the FAA.
Basically a note that says the license is real.

Super easy... and you can do it yourself online and get it printed, emailed or faxed directly to your employer.

- Go to Federal Aviation Administration (http://www.faa.gov) and click on Licenses and Certificates.
- On the right side, you'll see a link saying Log in to airmen online services.
- Over there, you'll need to create an account which takes maybe a minute or so.
- Once you're logged in, you'll see on the right side of the screen under Certificate a link saying "Request Verification of Certificate Privileges." Click there.
- Once in there, you can select what you'd like to verify or include. For example, your CFI or AGI in addition to your ATP can be included in the letter.
- Select where you want your letter sent (e-mail, fax, etc.)
- Make sure you have some form of ID as you'll have to enter the numbers to request this info.

Good luck!

The verification process is automated. See above. You also need a "no accident or incident letter". Last time I did this, 5 years ago, it was not automated. It is also on the FAA website.
