Do we need 1 or 2 PCCs from Hyderabad/India?

5 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

I'm applying for IR1/CR1 for my spouse in Hyderabad, India. I'm going through the PCC requirement for India.

My wife got her Passport from Hyderabad 3 years ago. She has been living at her permanent (passport) address ever since she got her Passport.

Based on this, do we need 2 PCCs? 1) from Local Passport Office 2) From District Police Station

She talked to Hyderabad Passport Office and they said they don't provide any "additional" clearance certificate to what the District Police Station provides as PCC. She has applied at the District Police Station and should be getting a PCC in a week.

Do we need to do any additional step at the Hyderabad Passport Office?

Can any one who has already obtained PCC from Hyderabad and had it accepted by NVC can please reply on what they did?

I have read many VSJ posts on PCC in India and lot of people have posted saying they got 2 PCCs. Does it apply to my case also?

Police Records

Indian Police Clearance Certificates should be obtained as follows:

* All Indian IV applicants aged 16 and above, residing in India, should obtain police certificates from the local Passport Office. These are usually more dependable than those obtained at a local level and indicate that the subject had no serious criminal convictions on record at the time of passport issuance. Applicants whose Indian passport was issued within the past six months may present just the Passport Office Police Certificate, and need not obtain additional police clearances.

* Applicants over age 16, whose passports were issued more than six months previous to visa application, must also obtain a police clearance from the District Police Office serving the applicant's place of residence.

Thanks

Hello Falcon,

Just a FYI.. You do need PCC from local police station and passport office. I submitted my DS230 with just PCC from local police station but NVC won't complete the case until I submit PCC from passport office too.

Can you tell me for which City you are getting PCC verification for? And which City is your Passport issued at?

My wife just scanned me a copy of PCC she got from District Police Station, Hyderabad and it has ACP signature plus seal of "Inspector of Police, Passport & Foreigners Section, Special Branch, Cyberabad".

So my thinking is if passport issued and address verification is in same City, then probably we get only 1 PCC.

My wife's got her Passport from Hyd and address to be verified is also Hyd. The Passport Office folks also sent her to "Passport & Foreigners Section" of Police Dept.

Thanks
