Police Certificate for IV package

15 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

Does my husband have to get a police certificate? He lives in Mexico right now and I read many times that police certificates from Mexico are unavailable. However, I have also read people saying that they do have to get them. Im confused. I know I have to send court documents from the one time he got arrested for possesion of alcohol under the age of 21 when he lived in Iowa but I want to be certain that the police certificate from Mexico is not needed. I dont want to delay our process in any way. Thank you

Not for Mexico: http://travel.state.gov/content/visas/english/fees/reciprocity-by-country/MX.html#policerecords-3

Police records are considered unavailable for Mexico and therefore not required.

this is weird! i was told by my lawyer that you needed it!! IT IS A MUST!!! AND THEY ARE OBTAINABLE IN MEXICO!! YOU HAVE TO GO TO THE PROCURADURIA GENERAL WITH ID

AND A PICTURE PASSPORT TYPE WHICH IS SEALED ON THE RECORD AND THEN GIVEN TO YOU IN A DAY!

THAST WHAT WE HAD TO DO FOR MY WIFE! I WOULD RATHER BE SAFE THAN SORRY YOU BETTER LOOK MORE INTO IT BECAUSE

ACCORDING TO OUR LETTER FOR THE INTERVIEW YOU DO NEED IT FOR THE INTERVIEW UNLESS YOU SENT IT AS PART OF YOUR PACKET!

Make sure, it wouldnt be good if they request it from you at the interview and you dont have it.

Ok, I just got off the phone with NVC customer service and they said that police certificate for Mexico is unavailable so it does not have to be sent with documents. She also told me though, that it would be a good idea to just write a short letter of explanation stating that I did not include the police certificate in my packet of documents because it states online that it is unavailable. But if anyone has been arrested and put in jail or prison in Mexico they have to get those records. And those are available, but she didn't tell me where to get that information since my husband has never been in any trouble in Mexico.
