Hi All,

Could someone please be more clear with regards to obtaining the Police Certificates for the K-1 Visa? The Check list states tat I need to secure from each locality where I have resided for the past six months or more since attaing the age of sixteen. I should state that I'm from Canada and have only lived in one province BC. I've been told different things from difference RCMP locations, one office said I need a form from each and every city/town I've lived at and another said that I only need one from the place I reside as the registry searchs all of Canada for my name and birth date. I currently have the one from the place that I reside which states "This certifies that a search based on the above name and date of birth, failed to disclose and such person with a record of criminal convictions in the national repository for criminal records in Canada." RCMP GRC 1868. Can any confirm if this is all I need?

Thx

It was all I needed for my K1 interview in Germany. The police certificates are usually issued for the country you live(d) / reside in - it doesn't matter how many different addresses you had there.

What the check list is referring to - that you need one for each locality where you have resided for at least 6 months since you turned 16 - is, if you had moved to England for example to study and spent time there as a resident, or if you had moved to Australia for work purposes, then you would need a police certificate from those countries as well. But since you never resided anywhere else than Canada, I believe you are good to go with the one certificate that you have.

Well it's a little more granular than that. If you've moved cities or counties or any other unit of population measurement where there is a different police jurisdiction then you should get a police report. Basically if you would have to go one place to get a police report for one location you lived, and another place for another location, then you'll want to get them both.

Yep - go with the local RCMP detachment, tell them what it's for and you should be fine. It only gets complicated if you have a history and they need to do fingerprints and again......the fingerprint thing is ONLY necessary if you have a criminal record...if they find nothing in the name/ dob search, all is fine.

The Police Certificate will be a Canada wide search. Since you have only resided in Canada it doesn't matter which Province or how many you have lived in. Make sure to ask for the Police Certificate not just the Criminal Background check. There is a difference between the two forms.

I had to phone my local RCMP a few times before I finally talked to someone who knew what I meant by a Police Certificate.

all you need is an RCMP report which is canada wide. if you have nothing on your record, you won't need fingerprinting either. the place I would recommend is www.policecheck.com. they will charge $35 and will get you the report within 3 days. i was very satisfied with their service. didn't have to drive around to RCMP offices, etc. if you've had any name changes though, make sure all names show up on the report as this caused a hold up for me at the interview as my maiden name did not show up so they asked for an additional report. anyways,their contact info in Vancouver is:

Vancouver

619-470 Granville St

Vancouver, BC

V6C 1V5

(T) (604)708-3315

Monday 8:00am - 5:30pm

Tuesday 8:00am - 5:30pm

Wednesday 8:00am - 5:30pm

Thursday 8:00am - 5:30pm

Friday 9:00am - 5:30pm

It's hard to belive that an RCMP agent told you that ridiculous misinformation.

The last time I checked the RCMP stood for: Royal Canadian Mounted Police.

Canadian: meaning national.

One stop shopping.

They send the request from wherever you are to their HQs in Ottawa and that is that.

Maybe since they are no longer "Mounted", they have lost their meaning/way.

Bahaha!
