How Do I Obtain A Peruvian Police Certificate From Outside Peru

4 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

I am desperate for help. We started our visa process on December 2013 and have had nothing but drama. I am born and raised in Canada but I had lived in Peru in the late 1980s with my ex - partner for 3 years. I was in a very bad abusive relationship so I was not registered as a national. I was not allowed to work, obtain credit, own a bank account or drive. I was basically invisible. As my CR-1 process dragged on, I was given different stories by different supervisors. I was told they needed documents that they already had, that my application was in order, and much more mis information at the NVC. My husband went to our congressman in the Bay Area to get assistance since we were obviously being put on hold and not been given honest answers. Once we had a congressional liaison, the process did speed up and after a year and a half, we had a case complete. We were told that it wasn't an issue that we were unable to obtain a police certificate. Last week, I had my green card interview and I'm pretty sure I've never been treated like such a criminal by a government official or any border agency for that matter (and let me tell you, The Blaine/Vancouver border is NO FUN). The officer was accusatory, almost suggesting I was a liar, cheat and criminal in some way. He asked for my expired passport (which had expired in April since they took so long to CC) and then he wanted my expired passport from 2005 - yes, that's right - requested an expired - expired passport. I gave him my most recent expired passport and then he had a major problem that I had traveled in the couple of years I have been here in Canada to either see my husband or pick up my essential oil orders for my business at my UPS mailbox (until I was no longer allowed to travel to the US one year ago). Much of what the agent said to me was not even appropriate. I just don't understand how a 47 year old business woman, married almost 10 years who has never had anything more than a speeding ticket when I was 23 years old was such a threat that he had to treat me in that manner. Anyway, he would not approve my green card until I obtain a Peruvian Police report. Can anyone guide me? I've tried for 10 months and I have managed to get no where. I don't have anyone in Peru and I have contacted the Policia of Peru, the embassy in Vancouver, Canada and anyone else I thought could assist. Once I have that certificate, I can Loomis it to the US consulate and will get my green card. I have to say, I'm completely traumatized from this whole process.

I don't know about Peru, but I found this on , of all places the Canadian Immigration site http://www.cic.gc.ca/english/information/security/police-cert/central-south-amer/peru.asp

If you are not a citizen of Peru: If you live in Peru: If you live outside of Peru:

You can apply for Police, Judicial and Penal certificate by contacting the issuing authorities (listed in the Special notes and considerations) or by contacting your nearest Peruvian embassy or consulate. Alternatively, family members or friends residing in Peru may request the required certificates on your behalf. Depending on the type of document, either a simple written consent or a power of attorney could be required (contact the issuing authorities for more details).

Best wishes and don't loose hope!

Hi Rob,

Thanks so much for taking the time to send the links and your reply. I've been to the Can site (and all the others). I also called the Peruvian Embassy in Vancouver 17 times. On the 18th try, they answered and told me to contact my Canadian Embassy in Peru who then told me to contact Interpol who then sent me to the Canadian RCMP. They told me they don't do this. Another words, I got no where. I haven't lived in Peru for 27 years and I don't nor have I ever had anyone in Peru to help me with this. I didn't have to disclose my Peruvian stay but I was honest and forthcoming about everything and was penalized for it by the immigration process. I'm almost at the finish line but this is the one big thing my congressman and congressional liaison said I would get a pass on due to the circumstances.
