Warning about Police Records for other countries

Hello to everyone;

I wanted to give you guys a heads up. In the USCIS Website it states that you DO NOT need a police certificate for any country that you have resided in IF you have lived there less than 12 months. In fact, when we had our interview last Thursday in Bogota, we were given a folder with the items we needed to place and in the order they had to be placed in. One of the items on that list was the police certificate from other countries BUT it states 9-months not 12 months. When we asked the consulate about that she stated that the website was wrong.

I just wanted to share this with you guys because I think it stinks that the information we use to educate ourselves is erroneous.

Good luck

Since the USCIS does NOT issue visas.... it is the wrong source for this kind of information as well...

For visa issuance, the Department of State is the final say... The DOS actually indicates the PC requirement at 6 mos. (not 9 or 12) Some consulates are strictly adhering to the 6 mos PC requirement for both domestic and previous international residences. Having said that, the real answer is consulate specific and the consulate sets there OWN requirements (though the majority still appears to be 12 mos for previous international residency).


YMMV
