I wish I could help you... but we're not at that point yet, but I'm worried about it all too. Try PMing some members that already went through the process, I did that and they helped me a lot.

Buena suerte mijo, que todo les vaya bien !

About the certificates, our experience from Iquitos is this:

CERTIFICADO JUDICIAL DE ANTECEDENTES PENALES - Very fast, we got it the same day from Iquitos.

CERTIFICADO DE ANTECEDENTES POLICIALES - We were told it would take 15 days to get this from Iquitos. We are waiting after submitting all forms.

CERTIFICADO DE ANTECEDENTES JUDICIALES A NIVEL NACIONAL - This one we were told more than 1 month if we try to get it from Iquitos, but 5 days if we get it in Lima. If we thought that we had 2 months before the interview, then we would have obtained all 3 certificates in Iquitos.

So, the interesting thing here is, you should be able to get all the police certificates locally if you don't live in Lima. Just make sure you start early enough.

Also, keep in mind that your fiance/fiancee does not need to travel to Lima for the certificates. If you know someone in Lima, that person can submit all the papers for you.

Another thing we found out was that nobody ask for the interview letter before giving these certificates.

There are 3 types of CERTIFICADO DE ANTECEDENTES POLICIALES. You want to get the "VIAJE AL EXTRANJERO" I think.

I also think the certificates are only good for 3 months....I might be wrong, but keep this in mind so you don't get them too early.

this is from our experience with K-1 in Lima in June of 2007. There is more about civil surgeons and birth certificates on the VJWIKI (see WIKI tab above). search for Peru K-1 and you'll see the page I wrote after our experience.

good luck!

There are Three police documents:

1. Certificado de Policia This has to be done at Av. Aramburu 550 (take any bus that goes to the Via Expresa, get off at Puente Aramburu, walk 2 blocks to the big green building, use the side entrance) a. pay fee of about s/. 20 at any BANCO DE LA NACION b. get one passport sized foto. You can also take the photo there, but it takes a looong time, and costs s/.5 c. get a photo copy of DNI d. get a photo copy of the payment voucher from the bank (both copies can be made right outside the side entrance) Ready to pick up the next day.

2. Certificado Judicial de Antecedentes Penales This has to be done at the Ministerio del Publico, Av. Abancay. Use door 1. Get there early. a. pay fee of s/. 60.40 at any BANCO DE LA NACION b. the photo is taken there, and there is no charge. c. get photocopy of DNI d. get photocopy of payment voucher from the bank Ready to pick up the same day, but then you have to take it somewhere else to get it ´legalized´which can only be done before 2 pm.

Legalization of Antecedentes Penales This has to be done at the Ministerio de Relaciones Exteriores on the corner of Ucayali and Lampa, about 3 blocks from the Ministerio del Publico. a. wait in line, show the document to be legalized. they only let in one person per document. b. pay s/. 22.25 once inside if you get there early enough, you could pick it up in a few hours. if not you have to go back the next day. There will be a line, outside and inside. expect to wait about 45mins to pick up the newly legalilzed document. on the ticket they give you to pick up your doc, there is a time written in red marker. ask the doorman what hour the people in line are waiting for because you might not have to wait outside.

3. Certificado de Antecedentes Judiciales a nivel nacional This needs to be done at the INPE Av. Carabayo 451 about 3 blocks from the Ministerio del Publico. NOTE. this was the biggest headache.. there are TWO certificados de Antecedentes Judiciales. one is only valid for Lima, and will do you no good. Aparently the bank teller was not aware that there were two different certificates, and charged me the s/. 28 for the Lima regional cert, even though i clearly specified that I needed the NATIONAL cert. You need to make a deposit into the checking account of the INPE for the amount of s/. 34.95. a. deposit s/. 34.95 into account number 0000.281794. do this at the BANCO DE LA NACION in the Plaza Pizarro, next to the Palacio. b. take 2 carne sized photos c. give original reciept of payment d. photocopy of DNI Ready to be picked up in 10 working days.

Are these the only three police certificates needed or do you also need them from any locality where you lived for more than six months?

So if you lived all your life in Lima except for one year you moved to Cusco, would you then need a police certificate from Cusco or not?

And another big question for the Peruvian group please; was the embassy interview date for your 130/CR1/resident petition arranged by NVC or by the embassy? I'm trying to figure out timing for the interview after completion of the NVC process and I don't know who would schedule the interview faster NVC or the Lima U.S. Embassy.

thanks for your help.

I think the rule is that if you lived anywhere for over 6 months since you turned 16 you need a police report from that locality as well. My husband lived in lima since he was 5 so we didn't have to do that. I would find out how to get that documentation from Cusco, unless you lived there before age 16.

We did K-1 so I can't answer your other question, sorry!

Does anyone know which of these documents need to be translated? if so which translations...there is a regular translation option and and 'official' that cost four times as much. What does the Embassy and USCIS require? I am asking for the embassy and also for USCIS to file AOS, Etc.

Thanks for any help!
