DS-230 and Police Cert

Timeline

The police certificate that I have is 2 months old, dated Aug/25th. By the time I submit DS-230, it will be over 2 months old from the date issued? Is that a problem? It doesn't have expiration date (which is the case with police certificated issued by Nepal Police).

They are usually good for at the very least 6 months from the date issued so you should be good to go...

The police certificates don't have expiration dates on them. What matters is up to what point the embassy will accept them. Some are good for 6 months, others 12 months. Since this is a consulate specific question, I suggest you check with the consulate (particularly so you'll know if you need another one before the interview)

Good luck.

However, they are at least good for 6 months and since it is only 2 months old you should be OK... At least to turn it in, depending on when your case is complete and have the interview, you might need to get an updated one, but for now, you are OK

Thanks all.

I am hoping it completes well before 6 months mark. I don't have that patience anymore to wait additional 4 months.. Really.. Paid the AOS bill online on Thursday and still shows as pending on DOS's payment site but the money has already left my account. I have checked the web site almost 1000 times by now. What a mess have I gotten myself into. Thanks God that you guys are around and for making this journey NOT as painful else not sure what would've happened..

This is not true. It depends on the policy of issuance governed by the Ministry of Internal affairs/Ministry of Justice of every country. On the police certificates for Bulgaria (or so called Court records) it is always dated that it is valid for 6 months only from the date it was issued. So, every applicant should check validity of police reports with their agencies. NVC is aware of each document issued to a beneficiary from a foreign country. I know that for a fact! Also, if you look at the USCIS website, reciprocity by country, it will shaw you which document is available and in most cases for how long it is valid for.

For Bulgaria it says:

"Police Records: Unavailable. Immigrant visa applicants are required to submit court certificates instead, which show whether the applicant has ever been convicted in Bulgaria (see Court Records).

Court Records: Available. Court records are issued by the respective district courts to persons born in Bulgaria. Persons born outside of Bulgaria must file an application with the Ministry of Justice. The application must contain full identifying data and should be accompanied by a birth certificate. Bulgarian court certificates are valid for six months." http://travel.state.gov/visa/frvi/reciproc...ocity_3523.html

Hope that info was helpful! :thumbs:

Saudi Arabia PCC does not contain expiration date either, I have this VJ'er buddy who had a problem with NVC because his PCC from Saudi has no expiration date. I am sure he wasn't the first applicant from Saudi and NVC must be aware that Saudi Arabia does not issue a PCC with expiration date or even a note that the certificate is good for 6 months or 12 months, it has only the date of issuance. Now I am worried that I will have the same problem.
