Thai Police Report for K1 - Non-Thai national (w/ work permit)

2 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

My fiancée is a Viet national living in BKK, working for Agoda and she has a valid work permit and visa. Our K1 was just approved by USCIS, travelled through the NVC and the NVC packet is 'In Transit' to the BKK embassy.

We know that we need a police report and are trying to figure out the documents needed to get this going. I have seen it takes 5 weeks or more for this document to be generated (and you can't pay extra for expedited processing). The instructions are rather confusing and most of the advice seems to understandably be aimed at Thai nationals. The various sources seem to differ wildly or not apply at all to our situation. Is it possible to get the process started now? I have seen some reports saying you just need a copy of the NOA2 and her work related stuff to get the Police report. Other places say she can't even start on this process unless she has the first page of her Packet 3.

Any help would be greatly appreciated, thanks!

I would get started right away on this. My fiancee (a Thai national) applied for her police clearance on November 14 and is still waiting to receive it! As far as the "extra fee" (expedited service), that was available four weeks ago. From what I've heard here, it cuts the turnaround time from 4-6 weeks to 1-2 weeks. Be prepared to lay down 1500฿ (about $42) for this service.

If you fiancee lives and works in Bangkok, she can easily visit the police clearance center. Consider yourself lucky in that regard. Yes, your fiancee can bring a copy of your NOA2 and that should be sufficient based on my fiancee's experience.

For further details, check out the Thai Police Clearance Certificate instructions on the US Embassy's web site. Although it's not noted there, she'll need to bring a color copy of your passport bio page with your signature below it. (Odd, I know.)

Hope this helps!
