Filed: K-1 Visa Country: Philippines
Timeline

I went to Saudi Arabia last July 31, 2007 to work as a nurse and stayed there exactly 6months

and decided to go home and never go back. I met my fiance around May 2008 and he filed K1 last Sept. 2008.

I never knew that i will be needing the police clearance as one of the requirements in the US Embassy. It is impossible for me to

go back to Saudi just to get a police clearance.. Don't know what will i do now?? Please help...

Thanks.

I would contact the Saudi Embassy in Metro Manilla, and the Philippine Embassy in Saudi Arabia. Keep copies of all correspondence to show your attempts to get your police clearance. Some countries do not have reciprocity agreements, and will not issue a police clearance without a letter of introduction, and only while you are a resident of their country. The US Embassy should aware of those countries.

Others should have personal experiences similar to yours, and may give you some advise.


Hokey Smoke!

Police Records

Police clearances are available for Saudi citizens and resident third country nationals. Saudi citizens currently residing overseas must return in person to process the police clearance.

Saudi citizens and third country nationals residing in the Kingdom process the police clearances by first obtaining a police clearance request letter from U.S. Embassy Riyadh, U.S. Consulate General Jeddah, or U.S. Consulate General Dhahran. This police clearance request letter, signed by a consular officer, must be attested by the Saudi Ministry of Affairs (current fee is SR30). The applicant must then appear personally with a passport-sized photograph and a national ID or residency permit at the regional Criminal Investigation Department for fingerprinting. Fingerprinting for women is done in a separate room. The police clearance should be available for collection after a week or two.

Police clearances are available for Saudi nationals residing outside of the Kingdom. The expatriate Saudi citizen obtains the police clearance by returning to the Kingdom and obtaining a police clearance request letter from U.S. Embassy Riyadh, U.S. Consulate General Jeddah, or U.S. Consulate General Dhahran. This police clearance request letter, signed by a consular officer, must be attested by the Saudi Ministry of Affairs (current fee is SR30). The applicant must then appear personally with the attested police clearance request letter, a passport-sized photograph and a national ID at the Regional Criminal Investigation Department for fingerprinting. Fingerprinting for women is done in a separate room. The police clearance should be available for collection after a week or two.

Police clearances are unavailable for third country nationals who no longer reside in the Kingdom.

The optimal time to conduct these procedures at the police stations is 10:00 Saturdays-Wednesdays.
