Police Certificate for Jakarta Embassy

7 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

Hi guys, I've read somewhere here on VJ that the Jakarta Embassy is not honoring the Indonesian Police Certificate for good behaviour. Meaning they didn't even look/ask for it. How much of that is true?

I have lived in the US before from 94 to 2008 and for the police in the US, they don't even issue such documents, correct?

So does this mean when I come for the CR1 interview, I dont have to bring any police certificates?

Thanks in advanced for your inputs.

No, you don't have to bring any police certificates in this matter.

US consulate in Indonesia doesn't request and probably will never request Indonesia Police Certificate as the credibility and validity of it is still questionable. You may have confirmation for this here http://jakarta.usembassy.gov/visa/req_docs_iv_interview.htmland here http://travel.state.gov/content/visas/english/fees/reciprocity-by-country/ID.html#policerecords-4

As for someone who had lived in the US I believe US government has their own way to provide them the background check.

Hope it helps.

Thanks a lot Nungky. This gives me confidence.

When you say "consulate", does this apply for the actual embassy in Jakarta as well? I'm afraid it only applies for the consulate in Surabaya.

You are very welcome.

Yes, it applies to ALL consulates in Indonesia including Jakarta who handles the immigrant visa.

Hey Nungky,

Unless you have lived/worked outside Indonesia, US excluded, for more than one year (though some posts on VJ said over 6 month is countable too) then it shall not be necessary to obtain and submit the certificate on NVC stage.

US government doesn't accept Indonesia Police Certificate with the same reasons that I mentioned on my previous post.

Best of luck to you.
