Police Certificates

7 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

I want to make sure I'm understanding this correctly because, in Ireland is takes 10-15 weeks to get our Police Certificates (They are WAY behind).

I do not see on the Step by Step K1 Fiance Visa guide that you are required to have Police Certificates but a friend of mine told me that his brother had to have one for his wife when she came over from the U.K.

So does my fiance need one? She has lived in Ireland her whole life and never worked "abroad".

You need a police certificate from anywhere (including home town) you have lived for 6 months or more.

So yes she needs one from Ireland for the medical and interview and AOS.

Tim, she wants to know if getting "vetted" is the same thing? She said she had to get "vetted" last year to work in a creche and it took 3 months.

No, police certificates used for immigration purposes are generally not the general background checks required for certain professions.

Your fiancee will need police certificate for her interview at the cinsulate.

I want to make sure I'm understanding this correctly because, in Ireland is takes 10-15 weeks to get our Police Certificates (They are WAY behind).

I do not see on the Step by Step K1 Fiance Visa guide that you are required to have Police Certificates but a friend of mine told me that his brother had to have one for his wife when she came over from the U.K.
