ANOTHER POLICE CERTIFICATE QUESTION

38 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

My Financee has lived in two different cities over the past 6 years, her hometown and also Moscow. From my reading it appears she needs a certificate from both cities although she states she shouldn't since she never registered in Moscow. If she does need a police certificate from Moscow will not registering cause a problem? Does she need to make two special trips to Moscow to request this certificate and then back to pick it up?

Thanks for the help.

Hi,

I'm not an expert, but as far as I understand, she'll need only one certificate for the whole time in Russia and she can get it in the city where she's officially registered.

I haven't had interview yet, so obviously I cannot give you 100% guarantee on this information. I hope somebody will correct me if I'm wrong.

Your fiancee can always call or e-mail the U.S. embassy in Moscow to verify the information.

Good luck! :thumbs:

It all depends what you list on the G-325A. When it asks where she's lived if she says her city plus Moscow, then she needs a police report from her city AND from Moscow. The U.S. govt. doesn't care if she registered or not, that's a Russian thing. But they do want to see a police report from each region that she's lived in.

However, if she only lists her city on the G-325A then she only needs one police report; from her city.

I doubt that it's possible to get a police report from Moscow if she's never been registered there. :(

However Information Centers request information for the whole country and you get just one paper (with all of the addresses listed, I suppose). That's what I was told when I called the Information Center in Moscow and I've read the same on Russian forums.

We used a law firm in Moscow to get our police certificate cost 500$ + 25$ for an English translation they are very professional and very helpful. I am sure they can sort her situation out. Besides she wont have worry about bribes or anything else they do 98% of the work for her, and they guarantee the documents in one month. here is the link hope it helps. http://www.bridgewest.com/visaservice/us_o...cecertificates/

Good luck!

It is possible to request a Police Certificate from Main Information Center of Ministry of Internal Affairs of Russian Federation that includes all regions (including Moscow or St. Petersburg) that the applicant lists on the application for Police Certificate.

I would suggest listing regions pertaining to all addresses listed on G-325A, including Moscow.

Whether the applicant was registered or is currently registered in any of the regions, it does not matter at all.

Processing time of the application is 30 days. They tend to have the Police Certificate ready on the 30-th day and not a day earlier. There is also information that the processing time is 3 weeks to 3 months, but I do not know if it is true or current.

The address is: 117418 Moscow ul.Novocheremushkinskaja, 67

Public reception hours are something like 8 AM-9 AM Mon-Thu.

There is no fee for filing the application, and internal passport is the only document required to file the application.

$#!T, for $525 they better do 100% of the work and throw in a free steak and BJ. Since they're in Russia, they probably should throw in 2 free steaks and BJs. Actually, if we did the math on this one, they could throw in about 12 steaks and BJs and still have money left over from that $500. My goodness. Highway robbery!

Completely agree, considering the police certificate is easy to get and is free! However, I noticed the OP had Canada as the country listed. In that case they should have used the nearest Russian consulate to get the certificate. Cost $50 per document / page. Should only be one page + translation costs that you do on your own if any. Downside is the up to 6 months wait. But if one thinks of this before applying for the K1 the wait isn't that bad, since the average self reported K1 takes at least 6 months process to the interview stage.

Just would like to add based on my experience of getting the police certificate in Moscow, maybe it will help someone.

If you are physically in Moscow, then the place to go for the police certificate would depend on where you have your permanent registration ('propiska') in Russia. For those 'registered' in Moscow it is is 2 Kolobovsky per, 8/2 (close to Petrovka, 38); for those 'registered' in Moscow oblast', it is Moscow, Nikitsky per, 3; and for those from anywhere else in Russia (irrespective of whether you have ever been registered in Moscow or not, they won't ask for it anyway) the place to go, as was already mentioned on this forum, is ul. Novochereyomushkinskaya, 67. If the latter is your case, just go there with your passport and tell them what places in Russia you have lived in and when (you will have to fill in a special form). It takes them 30 days maximum to have it ready for you ('cause this is what is required by law). In my case, it was even faster (sth like 3 weeks) in spite of some official militia holidays. Plus, it's absolutely free and no any bribes! The certificate they gave me covered the place of my permanent registration (some other place in Russia), Moscow and Moscow oblast' (though I never gave them any moscow registrations). Overall, it was one of the easiest things to do in the whole visa process (except for the waiting for 3 weeks).

Hope this will be helpful.

You could've just made $525 with all that typing. New business opportunity. Think it over.....

Well I am bit torn here and will call the embassy to get a final answer. She went to the Rostov Information Center for IA and requested a certificate. My sweetie claims it covers all of Russia, but I just want to make sure....

$525 although is expensive it might be our only option. She would need to get on a train or plane, travel to Moscow which quite a distance away just to request the certificate. At least here she just needs to get the POA and submit the documents through mail.....

You need a certificate from every place you lived for more than 6 months since the age of 16. Getting one from one place won't cover the other places.

She doesn't need to go to Moscow to get a certificate.

Yes I agree 525 was alot but it is easy for you to comment because you lady was probably in Russia to get her certificate. my fiancee is in canada and had some issues with her internal passport that she had to correct at the Russian embassy in Toronto. Was a very complicated situation like the OP is having. 525$ is not alot to pay if she is worth it!! Leaving steaks and BJ's out it :lol:

The lawyer is very good and honest all she has to do is scan her internal passport and sign a power of attorney thats the 2% of the work. It saved us a lot of headaches. but yes expensive!
