Police certificate info - attn: Rajee, Loto, Bani, Hyd

13 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

Hey guys,

Since Rajee, Loto, Bani, Hyd are either going through or have gone through this process through India, I would like to ask them or any other experienced people from the New Delhi, India embassy. If anyone else reading this thread has soon other info that will help me please dont hesitate to post. My questions are as follows:

1. What is PCC? I read this somewhere but I am not sure what this is. Does this mean that my wife has to get something from the regional passport office? My wife has lived in punjab and gurgaon so does she have to get it from both the chandigarh passport office and n.delhi passport office?

2. Do I have to provide anything else besides the police certificates from the places where she has lived.

3. What does the police certificate describe. Can anyone one of you tell me what the contents are of that certificate so I know what to expect.

3. How long in advance should I get all of this? Is it recommendable to get it around when the time is near?

4. Rajee - My wife is from punjab and New Delhi and it appears to me that your wife is from the same area also. Can you please suggest anything else that I should keep in mind.

Guys, I just want to prepare myself in advance. Your feedback, as always, is greatly appreciated.

the information you need is on this page...if her passport is more then 6 months she will need a PCC from regional police station for each place she lived for 6 months or more, if the passport is 6 month or less then one from the passport office is enough.

her visa was issued a few years ago...so she doesnt need to get anything from the passport office..correct??

do we have to send in the original marriage certificate and her birth certificate or an attested or a certified one would be good. i am little uncomfortable sending the originals...if certified would do that job, then where do i get it certified from?

she does not have to go to the passport office but if you read that link you will see that you could get one from that office as well because as stated they tend to be more reliable.

if you are refering to NVC it has to be originals documents (certified are considered originals because they come from the issuing authority).

I am not sure if she really needs a PCC from each of the places she lived in.

Take a look at this link.

http://mumbai.usconsulate.gov/ivpolicecertificates.html

Correct me if I am wrong, but a PCC from the most recent place of residence would suffice is what I read here.

Cmnb,

1. PCC means Police Clearance Certificate. Your wife has to get from the places where she has lived for more than 6 months.. Now about getting PCC from the regional passport office. You only need PCC from passport office if your wife's passport issue time frame is less than 6 months while reaching the case to NVC..

2. No, you do not have to provide anything else besides PCC from the places she has lived.. This one of document needed to submit along with DS-230.

3. It states that police do not have any records of that person and it is ok for them to apply for visa.

4. I think the validity of PCC is for 1 year from the issue date.. ( i am not sure on that).. Double check on that...

Hope this helps you out...
