Singapore Police Certificate

7 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

Need Help,

My wife and I are doing a k3 visa. She has her interview on 22 June at the embassy in Manila. The only thing we are missing is the certificate of no criminal conviction from Singapore. They require a $50.00 bank draft in Singapore dollars and my wife is having a hard time getting one in the Philippines. It seems nobody deals with bank drafts. If anyone could help me in this matter, I would really be thankful. Does anyone know how long it takes to get the police certificate back from Singapore.

Thanks VJ

I thought I may need a police certificate for singapore, and found a website which Im sorry to tell you I dont remember the name of . I do remember that it listed all countries, and you click on the one you want to get the info. (It was not a site directly linked to singapore)However I remember that there were 3 options for payment, I think visa or personal cheque was also accepted. It also said you could request your local police to take your fingerprints for you to send in. After receiving your information and payment, it said to expect the certificate by post in two weeeks. The fee I saw was for $45 Sing $$

One other thing, it mentioned that you would need to have proof of residing in Singapore for 6 months or more, ie. work contract, house lease ,bills of utilites etc.

Good luck.

The larger major banks in Manila should be able to provide the bank draft. After we completed the application and the fingerprint card and sent it off, it took about 6 1/2 weeks. This was back in 2004.

The website with all country info is,

EAD Approval Dec 29 2004

AOS appointment letter received Feb 3 2005

AOS interview scheduled for March 9 2005

AOS interview mostly fine, just need I-693 supplement filled out by civil surgeon

Spend another $40 for I-693 form, sent to local USCIS office registered mail, arrived March 11 2005

AOS finally approved March 25th 2005

Green card arrives about 10 days later

!!Green card has incorrect middle name!! Thanks USCIS

Travel back to Denver, turn in card and I-90 to correct their mistake.

Application accepted, asked for I-551 stamp, they told me "We don't do stamps anymore"

NOA1 for I-90 received from NSC April 18 2005, fee waived

NSC appears to have stoped processing I-90's

Marilyn needs to travel back to the RP, call Senators office for help with green card or I-551 stamp

Travel back to Denver July 1, 2005 and received I-551 stamp in the passport.

Greetings!

Most of the bank in the Philippines wont accept you to get bank draft if you dont have a dollar account....but i got the same problem before till i ask the supervisor in BPI BANK, AYALA to override one bankdraft for

$30 dollars and i paid 5$ extra for the fee...

Usually they wont allow this but i supported it with one copy showing where it is usedfor future reference.

It went well.

Ssgbodine6, if you still need the site for Singapore, it's:

www.spf.gov.sg/service/cer1.html

You'll find their forms and telephone numbers in that site, too.

I don't know what's wrong with the banks in the Philippines but the major ones should be able to get you a bank draft. Also try Hongkong and Shanghai Banking Corp. if there is one near your wife's place of residence. Funds (S$ 50.00) from the bank draft I got from Canada was drawn from that bank (HSBC) in Singapore, and I have a feeling they have HSBC in the Philippines.

I also applied for a certificate of no criminal conviction from Singapore. Mine took awhile because I didn't have the letter from NVC with my case number when I started applying for it (had everything else including the bank draft, proof of stay in Singapore, fingerprints and so on.) Anyway, as soon as I got my case number/letter from NVC. I faxed it to them. That was April 13.

On April 28, they mailed me my certificate. To date, I have not received it yet (but the postal service here in Canada is pretty slow).

Basically, it took Singapore two weeks to work on my certificate from the moment they got my fax. I called them every 3 days or so to check on the status of my application... just to make sure things were moving. They were pretty good about answering questions.

Sorry, this post is pretty long. Good luck.

Need Help,

Does anyone know how long it takes to get the police certificate back from Singapore.

Thanks VJ

Just wanted to let you know... the certificate they mailed on April 28 from Singapore arrived here in Canada today, May 10. So, a total of 12 days including weekends (or 8 business days, I guess). They sent it as registered mail. Don't know if this info answers part of your question...
