4 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

Hi everyone. 

 

So I am South African born, lived in South Africa up until I was 17 years old. Jan 2008 I moved to New Zealand and have been living in New Zealand since then. Jan 2008 I turned 18. I have New Zealand as my nationality but have kept my South African citizenship. 

 

Getting my South African police clearance from New Zealand is proving to be a nightmare!! 

 

Do I have to provide both a South African and New Zealand police clearance for the k1? 

 

Thankyou

It’s not that difficult to get, see here https://travel.state.gov/content/visas/en/fees/reciprocity-by-country/SF.html

there are also a number of agencies in SA that specialize in getting things like police records, birth certificates etc for expats, you could try one of those. They’re generally faster than doing it yourself, of course you pay for the privilege of that speed.
